Arbigland Estate, Dumfries & Galloway

The owner says

High quality driven pheasant, partridge or snipe shooting. Salmon and sea trout fishing and foxhunting with the Dumfriesshire & Stewartry Foxhounds can all be arranged in season. The House on the Shore makes the perfect sporting lodge and you can allow us to cater for all your needs while you focus on the sport!


Location: We are on a peninsula jutting out into the Solway Firth, this gives us a coastal microclimate that gives us half the rainfall of inland Dumfries & Galloway and makes us several degrees warmer.

About your host at Arbigland Estate, Dumfries & Galloway: Team, Arbigland Estate. The ancient Barony of Arbigland comprises farmland, woodland and foreshore on the Solway Firth coast bounded by the River Nith near Dumfries in the south west of Scotland. With its outstanding natural beauty and rich diversity of wildlife the estate forms part of the Nith Estuary Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and Upper Solway Special Site of Scientific Interest (SSI). We have long been aware that the beauty and uniqueness of the House on the Shore and the landscape of the Arbigland Estate are our most valuable assets. It may be that you want somewhere special to hold your wedding. Or perhaps you wish to run a corporate event or make a film here, in the garden of Scotland.

­­­­­­Game shooting experience at Arbigland Estate, Dumfries & Galloway: Birds are shown from a mixture of woods and cover crops. Arbigland is primarily a Pheasant shoot but small numbers of Partridge and Mallard are also put to wood. Getting around on the shoot is easy with no need for 4x4s as good roads and tracks outline each drive. Gun pegs are easily accessible with no big hillsides to climb or raging rivers to wade across… The shoot has 8 main drives spread over 1200 acres with several smaller drives for mini days and walked up / rough days spread over a further 1000 acres. The main drives show good sporting and challenging birds suitable for teams looking for a fun and relaxing days sport. All the drives are hopper feed allowing for a more natural presentation of the birds. Bird numbers from drives vary from “day to day” but a typical 150 bird day for 8 guns is easily reached and usually shot over 5 or 6 drives. Pegs are positioned in open fields or along the shore…standing on the beach is something many guns find quite amusing and a little different ! Click here for quick link country guide.
