The amount of money and effort that goes into driven grouse shooting is fascinating. This video gives you a bit of an idea of what it entails and results in. It’s a bit long, but it’s very well done and worth watching. It was produced for the Angus Glens Moorland Group, a collection of rural estates throughout Angus, Scotland.

Thank you for posting. A fantastic video of real life on a Scottish moor and the work that goes into keeping a fair balance of nature in harmony with presenting great shooting for visitors to the highlands. So much of the life up there depends on a hard working community depending on each other for support as was so well highlighted. The essential income from shooting parties feeds the economy and without that the highlands die for sure. If grouse shooting were stopped and the grouse unmanaged, there would be no incentive for landowners to put in an iota of investment and the highlands will cease to exist as we know them. A very sad state of affairs that would be. Politicians know so little or care less as they sit comfortably in their ivory towers.
Glad you like it, Charles. Thank for the note.
