Scotland’s grouse season ended on a high note this week, with demand for 2020 already outstripping supply.

Following last year’s washout season, experts had predicted 2019 would be mixed at best, but some moors in Scotland were able to host fairly full programmes with healthy interest from America, Scandinavia and other parts of Europe, as well as from within the UK.

Director of Ossian and a partner with Galbraith, Robert Rattray, said: “We had fingers firmly crossed that 2019 would be better than the very disappointing 2018 season, and were delighted that, in Angus and Perthshire in particular, certain moors were able to complete much of their predicted programme and escaped the worst of the weather."
