The area guide
How to get there, where to stay and what youõll eat.
Given its remote location it’s no wonder teams choose to shoot back- to- back days at Dunskey Shoot. Being 420 miles from London – the last leg from Gretna is 100 – the journey to the estate can be a long one. The nearest railway station is Stranraer, about eight miles away. The estate has its own air strip–or you can fly to Glasgow Prestwick Airport, around 90 minutes away.
To make the most of your experience at Dunskey Shoot look no further than Dunskey House. Owners Alastair Orr Ewing and his wife, Anne Tristine Nguyen, have turned the 10- bedroom residence into one that will cater for all your creature comforts. While shooting parties take precedence over other guests during the season, do bear in mind that the house and the shoot are run as separate entities (dunskey.com).
Food and refreshments served on shoot days are provided by Alastair and Anne, with local ingredients gathered from the nearby coast and the shoot itself at their core. Elevenses are taken in the Cable House close to the beach. Lunch is taken in the dining room at Dunskey House. With Liam Botham’s legendary hosting skills present on shoot day there is surely nothing Guns won’t want for. All they need do is ask.
