Grouse Shooting

Grouse shooting from August to December in the Park

Friday the 12th August is the start of the annual grouse shooting season in the Pentland Hills Regional Park. Please look out for temporary signage which will provide information on where it is safe to access the hills during that day's shoot. This will avoid unintentional disturbance to the shoot and help gamekeepers know where to expect people to take access.

The grouse shooting season will finish on 10th December.

Partridge shooting also takes place in the Pentland Hills. The season starts on the 1st September and ends on 1st February.

For further information please contact the British Association for shooting and conservation or refer to the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
