On the twelfth of August every year on the moors in Scotland, the annual start of the grouse season commences, where people from all over the world will attempt to shoot these amazing game birds. The red grouse is an iconic bird for Scotland, being naturally wild, with its association and marketing of the “Famous Grouse” blended whisky. For those wishing to enjoy a different grouse experience, then a trip to the visitor centre at Glenturret distillery near Crieff is great fun.

To be based centrally within Scotland, why not stay at this Holiday Lodge in Perthshire. This is a perfect self-catering holiday house for 10 people and an ideal base to take in as many glorious sites as you wish to see in Scotland. Visit Scotts Castle Holidays for more information.
