A Scots estate is getting ready to welcome the winner of the 2018 Grand Grouse Draw.
A member of draw organisers Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT), William Gardiner won a day’s driven grouse shooting next year with eight friends on the breathtaking Glenogil estate, which includes luxurious accommodation at Redheugh Lodge.
William, who is from Essex, said: ‘I’m absolutely delighted to have won such a fantastic Christmas present and I look forward to enjoying the prize.’
The Glenogil Estate, which lies between Glen Clova and Glen Lethnot, has a reputation for its spectacular scenery and its very high standards in game and wildlife conservation management. Its six beats cover around 17,000 acres of moorland to a height of 2,300 ft.
The estate has been subject to considerable investment over recent years, with its owners and management taking pride in enhancing the natural environment and their responsibility for the countryside and for local people. In addition to moorland, the estate has 3,000 acres of low ground and high biodiversity woodland.
The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust provides research-led conservation for a thriving countryside.
The GWCT is an independent wildlife conservation charity which has carried out scientific research into Britain’s game and wildlife since the 1930s, who advise farmers and landowners on improving wildlife habitats.
