Our unique simulated drives are situated around this magnificent Estate providing a variety of exciting and testing birds, and our warm hospitality makes for a truly memorable experience.

Having organised a day at Forrest Estate I can honestly say this is one of the best days shooting we have experienced. The setting is amazing and the drives great fun and challenging for most despite our experience.

The team are friendly and accommodating and the overall package staying at the Clachan Inn was just perfect. We shall definitely return.

Just returned from an amazing few days in Scotland with Andrew and his team at Forrest Estate. I contacted Andrew and every step of the way he has made the entire experience simple to organise and it was perfectly executed.

Forrest Estate is truly stunning. We did not get to see every drive, but the selection is fantastic and again Andrew and staff were on hand to help us to get the very best out of our day. Very much above and beyond our expectations.

Amazing, just amazing! This really is a bit special, fantastic location with superb instruction for complete novices to shooting! We had such a great time and the hotel was top class.

If anyone out there wants a quality weekend then take my word for it, this is it. Great value for money, just do it!
