The season gets off to a cracking start.

Taking pole position at the start of the season is the shoot at Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries this coming weekend (6th October). I will be heading north on Thursday/Friday to capture the breathtaking scenery the surrounds the castle. The day itself will be a 300 bird day, so promises plenty of action and excitement. What a cracking way to kick off the season.


Drumlanrig Castle is regarded as one of the finest examples of 17th Century Renaissance architecture in Scotland. It is built from red sandstone, is affectionately known as ‘The Pink Palace’ and has 120 rooms, 17 turrets and four towers.

With luck the weather will be on our side, giving me the opportunity to capture this location, the shoot and the Guns in all their splendour.
