The Stalking Season
Red deer have roamed the Highlands for tens of thousands of years, and would have been hunted by humans for almost as long. Today, stalking is big business, and the Ardnamurchan Estate, through its subsidiary West Highland Hunting, welcomes hunters from all over the world. The main stag stalking season is almost over, but hinds will continue for some weeks.
Many of us prefer to hunt using a camera. This photograph was taken a few days ago on Ardnamurchan Estate land and the Estate, through its Wild Highland Tours, offers opportunities for those who would like to record the many varieties of wildlife with which Ardnamurchan abounds.
