Wel­come to Du­nira

Scottish Field - - IN THE KONW -

This his­toric sport­ing es­tate lies close to the pic­turesque vil­lage of Com­rie in the heart of Perthshire. Du­nira was bought as a coun­try re­treat in the 18th cen­tury by Henry Dun­das, Vis­count Melville, who was widely re­ferred as ‘the un­crowned king of Scot­land’. Dun­das soon set about a range of fash­ion­able im­prove­ments to the es­tate, in­clud­ing the out­stand­ingly de­signed land­scape we see to­day, where ver­dant pas­tures be­side the River Earn sweep through slop­ing for­est to reach the im­pres­sive heights above Glen Led­nock. Now owned by the Eng­gaard Fam­ily, who bought the es­tate in 2008, Du­nira has swiftly be­come a ris­ing star in the sport­ing and stalk­ing world, of­fer­ing chal­leng­ing pheas­ant and par­tridge drives, duck flight­ing and stalk­ing pack­ages.
