Businesses are assessed on their passion to see country sports tourism thrive sustainably and grow for future generations, how they collaborate to deliver exceptional experiences with mutual benefits for communities and the environment, changes they are implementing to create higher quality experiences and enhance sustainability, and engaging new audiences to grow participation and showcase Scotland as the “go-to” place for country sports.

With a focus on protecting and enhancing the rich local biodiversity and landscape, there is ongoing large-scale replanting of over 300,000 mixed native Scottish broadleaf trees. The Estate is home to a vast number of red-listed birds it has the highest number of registered birds in Scotland including a golden eagle, ospreys, red kites, buzzards, lapwings and woodcocks and 54 breeding pairs of curlews.


A significant investment of over £24M has seen restoration of existing land and derelict buildings to create a unique year-round destination including luxury holiday accommodation for 96 guests, spa, wedding venue, butchery, farm shop and brewery. The Estate is also committed to becoming a net carbon, off-grid environment.


Shoot Captain and Estate Manager Philip Blount leads a team of six full time staff including three gamekeepers who are involved in conservation efforts to protect habitats and improve the Estate’s grouse moors.


Philip said, “I'm delighted that the Estate has been recognised in the Scottish Country Sports Tourism Awards. It reflects the commitment and progress our team has made over the past four years to establish our high quality shoot days. With 14 drives here at Logiealmond and a full mix of sporting birds, we have guests travelling from all over the world to shoot and stay in our luxury shooting lodges.”

Complementing game shooting experiences, the Estate also arranges simulated game shooting, and rafting or fishing with local partners to create an exclusive itinerary for guests.
