Scottish Field - - COUNTRY NEWS -

Scot­tish es­tate own­ers are cau­tiously op­ti­mistic that this year’s grouse sea­son will show an im­prove­ment on last year’s wash-out, with de­mand from do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional shoot­ers re­main­ing strong, ac­cord­ing to The Gift of Grouse cam­paign. Around 60% of vis­i­tors come from Eng­land, 10% from within Scot­land and 30% from over­seas – pri­mar­ily the USA, Den­mark, Bel­gium, Hol­land, France and Spain. New mar­kets are open­ing up in China and In­dia. The grouse sea­son in Scot­land is es­ti­mated to be worth £32m to Scot­land dur­ing a good sea­son.
