Grouse Shooting Practice & Tuition

We have made yet more improvements to our award winning grouse layout to include extra traps, two further butts and more landscaping. You can now engage incoming targets as far out as you can ever imagine possible and practice shooting behind, plus we have a new raised butt to provide even more variety. In all there are over 20 traps at your disposal on the one layout alone. Couple this with our world class team of instructors and we are here to ensure you are as well prepared as you can be before the glorious 12th.

Whether new to shooting grouse and looking for some tuition and advice on safety, etiquette and double gun handling, or you are an expert wishing to get back into the groove and blow the cobwebs away, we are here to help.

Your last shot was probably at high pheasants in January, so now is the time to re-adjust and with us you can shoot every conceivable grouse target; low incomers in groups and singles, far crossers, back birds and many others.

We get incredibly positive feedback from our clients every season who say that it was the best thing they could have done before going grouse shooting. They arrive fully prepared feeling safer, more confident, relaxed and when they get in their first butt they say they invariably shoot straighter and enjoy it all the more.

Sean Scott and Edward Walters, E.J. Churchill’s Sporting Agents, are both qualified shooting instructors with over 35 years’ experience between them. They spend more time on the grouse moors in a year than most people do in a life time. Who better to have a master class with than instructors who know the ins and outs of a grouse moor.


1 Hour Grouse Lesson with Instructor – £99.00

Brush up on your technique and prepare for your day in field with one of our first class instructors. After the disappointing season last year, it may now be two years since you shot Grouse so this is the perfect introduction back into Grouse shooting. It is so different to any other shooting you will do and we want to make sure you are at your best before you step into the butt so you can enjoy the day to the max.


1 Hour Double Gun Grouse Practice Session with an Instructor and Loader – £155.00

This is the perfect package to get rid of a few cobwebs and get used to shooting double guns again at simulated grouse targets. This is full on adrenaline city and is as real as it gets on a simulated basis, with an instructor by your side as well as a loader to practice double gun handling technique.


1 Hour Practice Session with a Loader – £80.00

Less of an instruction session, this is aimed at the more experienced grouse shot who just wants to fire a bag load of cartridges and get back into the swing of grouse shooting and get some practice under their belt before hitting the moors. You will be with a loader at all times who can put the clays exactly where you want them to make sure you are fully prepared.
