Scottish Country Sports in Argyll

Stalking, shooting, and angling with a view

Argyll and The Kintyre Peninsula are revered as a mature sporting destination, offering visitors outstanding country sporting experiences amongst a stunning and dramatic landscape. Country sportsmen have long recognised these qualities and have been coming to the area to hunt, shoot, and fish for well over a century, making The Village at Machrihanish Dunes the perfect place to call home whilst you’re discovering all that Kintyre has to offer.

The area offers a number of sporting opportunities including game shooting of birds such as pigeons, pheasants, grouse, and partridge; and stalking/hunting for deer, including roe, red, and sika deer. Local sporting estates such as Killian Estate in Kintyre provide country pursuits within an hour’s drive of The Village at Machrihanish Dunes. Deer stalking is guided by experienced stalkers with extensive local knowledge. Driven shooting for partridge and pheasant is available, as is rough shooting for pheasant, partridge duck, snipe, and woodcock.  Shooting and stalking are seasonal. Marksmen and beginners alike can take part in a round or two of clay pigeon shooting as well.

The Kintyre region also offers outstanding fishing with sea and game angling popular in the area.
