Country Life Every Week - - The Country Life Highlights -

This pic­ture taken on the Kil­der­morie es­tate in Scot­land—so time­less it could be from the Vic­to­rian era— was part of our ‘Best of Bri­tish’ se­ries and re­flects the mag­a­zine’s con­sis­tent sup­port for coun­try­side work­ers who help to man­age the land­scape and main­tain the balance of Na­ture within it. Dougie Rus­sell, pho­tographed by Brian Moody, gave up be­ing a steel­worker for the out­door life: ‘I’ve been on the hill with ev­ery­one from roy­alty to peo­ple who have won a day’s stalk­ing in a raf­fle, but the wel­fare of the deer is para­mount— it’s my pri­or­ity to en­sure that we only shoot the old or sick an­i­mals and leave the good-qual­ity ones—the en­joy­ment of the guest al­ways comes sec­ond’ (Au­gust 12, 2009) KG
