Walked-Up Rough Shooting at Ballogie Estate

We cater for guests who wish to take part in all types of field sports. If you prefer a shoot which has an element of the unexpected, then walked-up rough shooting could be perfect for you. Unlike stalking, pheasant, or grouse shooting which takes place at specific times of the year, rough shooting can be available all year round and consists mainly of rabbits and pigeons.

A Relaxed and Informal Field Sport

Walked-up rough shooting is a relaxed and informal field sport. Although it is similar to a walked-up grouse shoot, in that you will spend the day hiking over varied terrain with your guests, it has the added element of surprise because you never know what you may bag.


There is nothing like warm Scottish hospitality and a decent place to lay your head at the end of a rewarding day’s exertion. When it comes to accommodation, you can choose the exclusive use of Ballogie House which can sleep up to 13 guests; our newly refurbished, seven bedroom Potarch Lodge – recently upgraded to the highest standard and suitable for up to 14 guests. Both properties are perfect for larger parties who like to socialise after a rewarding day’s stalking. If you are planning to holiday with a smaller group, you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of one of our beautiful holiday cottages – Greenlands, a lovely, stone-built, traditional farm steading conversion, which can accommodate between 4-6 people, and Ford Cottage, which can cater for up to 7 guests. It has a wonderful new extension which includes an open plan kitchen, wood burning stove, and floor to ceiling picture windows with stunning views over the river. All of our accommodation is finished to a very high standard and are ideal for a friends and family stalking break or group holiday. Our properties also provide the perfect base for exploring the many visitor attractions within the area including National Trust for Scotland castles, Craigievar - a fine example of Scottish Baronial architecture; Crathes - an enchanting 16th century tower house, and Drum – one of Royal Deeside’s top historic attractions.
