We offer Simulated Game Shooting to parties of 8 to 16 guns. This offers a chance to sample a “Driven Game” day at a much lower cost than the “real thing”. As a result, no corners are cut and the day will be as exciting as any of our driven days.

Receive great hospitality in the stunning setting of Glamis Castle. Furthermore the simulated game shooting will take place in the beautiful countryside surrounding the Castle where challenging sporting targets are shown that simulate pheasant, partridge, grouse and other game. Consequently a day of simulated game at Glamis Castle will offer the thrill and excitement of any of our driven days yet at a lower cost.

  • The day begins at  9am
  • Breakfast refreshments on arrival are served  at Glamis Castle
  • 3 drives in the morning
  • Lunch in the Castle or choose a ghilles picnic  out on the hill

“I was at Glamis with a team in june, my first simulated day! We were met by our host Willy who gave a warm welcome and we spent a day shooting 5 very different and varied drives of very challenging targets in stunning scenery! Lunch in the castle was delicious and the hospitality was above and beyond!! A return visit is definately in order for next year!”
