200 Bird day at Fasque Estate for up to 10 guns
Bill Dunnett’s Fasque shoot is widely regarded as among the best in the UK for driven pheasant.
Fasque is a 9,000 acre estate situated on the south-east edge of the Grampian mountain range, close to the small town of Laurencekirk. Many of the drives are on high slopes which offer spectacular arcing views over the east coast of Scotland, from Aberdeen to Dundee and, on a clear day, over the Mearns of Angus and down to St Andrews in Fife.
This prize consists of a formal 200 bird day for up to ten guns, to be taken on a date to be mutually agreed within the 2019/20 shooting season.
Bill is a wonderful host and your day will begin in style with a champagne breakfast in Balbegno Castle before heading out to begin the shoot. A hamper lunch will be served in the field and the guns will return around 3pm for cocktails and a shoot dinner.
Challenging high birds, great fun and plenty of laughter are guaranteed. This would be a great day to share with friends or for corporate hospitality.
“It’s tremendous what Bill has achieved at Fasque. It’s a very relaxed day’s shooting, with challenging birds, lots of banter and a boozy dinner at the end. I’d definitely recommend getting a driver though!” George Steel
