Rassay is holder of the Scottish record woodcock bag of 916 birds in one season and is the jewel in the Scottish woodcock crown, superb ground ideal for 4-6 guns shooting over own pointers, or driven sport the island will only be shot over 3 times between 01 November 2008 and 31st January 2009.
This shoot fails to disappoint, stunning scenery with ground that woodcock want to rent!! This is my no 1 destination for virgin woodcock.
You can expect to see between 50-90 birds daily and pin 25-30 depending on how good a shots the group is. Best time to come is November-January. Pointers setters and handlers are extra cost of £125 per gun or we can split cost between group of 6/8 guns.
