Dougarie Estate covers approximately 27,000 acres of varied terrain on the north west coast of the Isle of Arran. Stalking, shooting, fishing and golf are all available on the Estate.
For all country sports the weather can be a challenge but the views are perhaps unrivalled in Scotland, with stunning scenery everywhere, particularly over the Kilbrannan Sound to the Mull of Kintyre.
On a clear day Islay, Jura and even Mull are visible to the north and west, and Northern Island to the south west.
As part of the Estate's continuing policy of protecting and nurturing the environment and habitat, it is necessary to cull a certain number of red deer from the herd each year. This is to ensure that a strong bloodline remains, and to prevent overcrowding and starvation. Stalking is available for stags from the end of August until the 20th October and hind stalking from 21st October to the 15th February.
Driven and walked up game shooting is available, mainly for pheasant but there are also duck, snipe and woodcock at the right time of year.
