Glenprosen Estate continues to develop and grow with a long term investment programme in place to secure this as one of the finest sporting facilities in the country. It is the estate’s aim to provide guests from around the world with an opportunity to experience Scottish field sports in beautiful surroundings, regardless of prior sporting experience.
The Estate offers practice grouse butts, built from traditional stone using simulated game clays to introduce guns to the thrill of driven grouse and allow those feeling rusty to brush up on their double-gunning technique. A rifle range is also available to allow stalking guests to ‘settle in’ and zero their own or the estate’s rifles before heading to the hill.
Hospitality is a key ingredient to a prefect day on the hill and Glenprosen Estate continually pushes the standard for guests with a truly unique experience being the aim, regardless of the weather. Kilbo Bothy offers guests a sublime lunch and dinner backdrop right at the top of the Glen within its beautiful stone interior. The ‘Gator Pit’, a Texan BBQ is on hand to be towed up the hill to provide lunch amongst the heather.
Protection, preservation and careful management of natural resources is a priority at Glenprosen and to this end old deer fences have been removed, power lines buried, grouse butts rebuilt, blocked water courses restored and hill tracks sensitively repaired. A run of river hydro power plant has also been added, allowing the estate to become a net exporter of renewable power. Commercial forestry blocks of pine and spruce have been felled and are being slowly replanted with native deciduous species such as alder and birch. Glenprosen Estate manages Cormuir and Runtaleave Farms with the estate’s dedicated shepherd looking after a thousand Scottish Blackface sheep, the farm recognised with the Quality Meat Assurance Scheme certificate. Plans are also in hand to introduce a fold of Highland cattle and Glenprosen Estate remains committed to working with neighbouring estates and Scottish Natural Heritage in managing the red deer population through continued voluntary cooperation with the Caenlochan Section 7 deer management agreement.
