The Stalking of deer

Our keepers are excellent deer stalkers and will do their utmost to provide the most opportune hunting moments for the resident Sika & Roe stag and hind. The Stalking session can be arranged for guests staying on the estate and simply wanting to take photographs of the deer at dawn or dusk, or for experienced rifle-men. Sika deer are renowned for being shy and mysterious and we are sure you will enjoy the hunting challenge. Red deer stalking can sometimes be arranged on nearby estates – please ask.

Clay Pigeon Shooting

If you’ve never tried to shoot before, perhaps clays is more your thing? Donald will operate the equipment and provide full tuition. To give you an example of what to expect, a group of 4 people shooting a box of 25 cartridges each, would take around 90 minutes at a cost of £140/160.

Shooting opportunities on Killean Estate

Hunting and Shooting

The ground for game shooting is excellent at Killean and very diverse. The ground ranges from marshy land close to the sea to typical heather moor land on the Argyll hills. There are also plenty of wooded areas to provide weather shelter for the birds and keep numbers high. Wood cock and grouse can be found on the hills along with pheasant.

Game Shooting

Our experienced gamekeepers will accompany your group to provide outstanding walked up rough shooting. The outcome will usually be a mixed hunting bag of 8-10 game birds per gun, to include pheasant, woodcock, snipe and rabbit.

Driven Shoots

Please ask for details on our driven shoots.

Duck Hunting

We have a number of ponds and lochs, particularly on the coastal plain near the seafront suitable for an evening duck shoot.

Grouse Shooting

With lots of typical heather moorland on the hillsides of Argyll, we can also provide grouse shooting. Please contact us to check that numbers are suitable as this will depend on the Spring/Summer weather.
