Our unique Glennoo topography offers a vast array of sporting opportunities and enables us to display birds from a variety of heights, angles and speeds making for a fun and exhilarating days shooting. We offer driven pheasant, driven partridge and driven duck shooting over a mixture of heather covered moorland, evergreen forest and ancient woodland.

An area of outstanding natural beauty, which stands at over 1200 feet above sea level. Red Leg Partridge are driven off the heather covered mountain tops and valley sides.
The Red Partridge is not only a beautiful bird but one of the world’s fastest and most challenging. Its vertical take off and the sound of its wings unique. Its flight is both rapid and irregular, it is a smaller target than a pheasant and tests even the most accomplished of shots.
