Looking for a country hotel for the shooting season?

Meikleour Arms is perfectly located for a day on the grouse at Invercauld or for pheasant shooting in Perthshire, Fife or the Angus Glens.

The hotel, built in 1820, has a selection of well-appointed rooms and five comfortable, modern cottages and a menu selection making the most of the bountiful local estate produce and seasonal wild game.

Stay at Meikleour and enjoy driven or walked up shooting

Meikleour is a great location for shooting grouse on estates like Invercauld

The hotel and estate are also perfect if you are having a day off, and wish to stretch your legs – you can visit the famous Meikleour beech hedge, it recently hit the headlines when owners were faced with a £90,000 bill to trim the highest hedge in the world. 

Perhaps you’d love to visit the V&A in Dundee, an easy trip to make as it is only a 35 minute drive from Meikleour.

A warm welcome, real fires, cosy surroundings, a well-stocked bar and an extensive menu of locally sourced produce are all standard at the Meikleour Arms.

Personal safety for country sports enthusiasts

Going out hunting or deer stalking in remote parts of the countryside or fishing a distant hill loch?

Scotland is a sporting destination enjoyed by men and women from all over the world. Hunting and fishing in far flung, and often isolated, beautiful locations is part of the unique charm of the Scottish experience.

Scottish Country Sports participation requires preparation; picking your dates, finding your chosen location, and selecting a service provider to suit your needs.

Cooler weather = warmer clothing

If you’ve been out and about early you will have no doubt felt the drop in temperature over the last few weeks. Sunrise is later, trees are changing and the leaves are falling, how on earth did we get to autumn so quickly? Venator_hoodie_Linda_Mellor

When you are out stalking deer, walking, fishing or shooting the right sort of clothing is crucial to staying warm and comfortable. If you are cold it distracts you, and spoils your enjoyment of being out. This new Gamewear hoodie is great! It keeps your warm without being too bulky, and it’s lovely and soft. It has great features like good sized zipped pockets, a large hood and an extended cuff with thumb holes to keep your hands covered. My favourite is the Roe buck. You can buy them online from Venator Pro’s website.
