Simulated Game Shooting

For those looking for a more challenging shoot at Hopetoun we have a variety of Simulated Game Shooting packages for groups. It’s as close to the real thing as possible – partridge and pheasant drives on the Hopetoun Home Beat are replicated using clays and grouse, pigeon and duck can also be simulated to give a truly varied day. Please watch this short film from a simulated game day on our Estate.

Simulated game shooting packages at Hopetoun offers a perfect days shooting with friends or clients throughout the year. The following packages are available all year (limited during pheasant season), however we are very happy to discuss your requirements and tailor a shoot to your groups particular needs. All costs include catering, clays and V.A.T.

The Hopetoun Shoot – from £170pp (exc. cartridges)*

This package has the formal feel of a driven days shooting. The guns assemble for breakfast rolls and tea/coffee and then proceed to the Home Beat for three drives before returning for lunch. After lunch the guns return to the Home Beat for a further two drives before returning for tea. Complimentary refreshments are included throughout the shoot. Our prices vary depending on your group size:

  • 10 or more guns £170 pp
  • 8 or 9 guns £185 pp
  • 6 or 7 guns £200 pp

The Midhope Shoot – from £90 pp (exc. cartridges)*

The Midhope Shoot is mostly offered during the summer months when long evenings allow shooting to take place until late. However, we can adapt the format to make it more of an ‘afternoon shoot’ during the darker winter months too. This shoot has an informal feel, allowing guns to meet on the Home Beat for a quick refreshment before shooting over three varied drives and ending with a barbecue. Our prices for the Midhope shoot are:

  • 10 or more guns £90 pp
  • 8 or 9 guns £95 pp
  • 6 or 7 guns £105 pp

*Cartridges can be supplied at an additional cost.  If you prefer to bring your own, we ask that you please ensure they are fibre-wad’s.
