Organised as 4 days of stalking split between pairs, Mr Free Market and Charles paired up whilst R and I went together.
A lovely little 4 bed lodge, with only 10 minutes in the car to the Ghillies house and the first morning on the zero range;
R and I travelled up the Glen and onto the hill in the land rover (thank god) and R went off to bag his first deer ever;Happy looking chap, I was then asked if I suffered from Vertigo, we went over the edge of an escarpement and onto a little rocky ledge where I then shot a Hind and her Yearling Calf, the shots were almost vertical and I was terrified to say the least, the Ghillie then ran down the escarpement to gralloch them, a total loon.
You can see that these points are vertically seperated by over 100 yards of vertical drop. That was me for the day, R went on to get another but I was astounded for the rest of the week.
Then it was back to the larder for prepping the carcasses and into the hospitality suite.
The hospitality suite;
Mr Free Market and Charles enjoyed both of their days as did R & I, I certainly sweated my final deer, the Ghillie made me work hard for having missed an earlier one and even then I plugged a different hind due to changing firing positions at the last minute;
That said it didnt stop me enjoying myself and the company, stalking is often a solitary occupation and I thank the 3 Gentlemen who accompanied me to the hill and the serial shagger known as the Ghillie!
The last day of all was a phenominal event in my books, 2 rifles and 8 hinds, well worth the long journey to see such an event, during the morning, I skinned a hind which the Ghillie quartered and its now mostly sat in the chiller awaiting processing;
In the evening a céilidh which meant Haggis wrapped in Chicken and Janes Clootie Dumplings followed by a swift run around the tops of the glens;
The view from larry landy as we set off seems to stick in the mind, a wonderful week.
