If you plan to hunt in England, then London should be your city of arrival. Choose Edinburgh and Glasgow if you are going to Scotland. All of them are served by daily direct scheduled flights from many European cities, Canada and the USA. The length of stay in England usually totals 5 days, with a 3-day hunt. Plan to spend 5-8 days in Scotland, with 3-6 of them hunting.
The hunt is mainly organized within the morning and evening hours, with a lunch back at your hotel. A professional guide will accompany you during the hunt. Hunting is by spot and stalk or from a high seat. Sometimes driven hunts are available.
A great choice of options is available: from small hotels for single hunters and self-catered cottages for a group of three and more to the luxury accommodation in a real castle located near the hunting grounds.
The hunt is organized in the best state and private hunting grounds. The hunting areas can be free range or vast fenced territories, depending on the species. In England you will hunt in forests, field woodlands, meadowlands and farmlands. In Scotland locations vary from rich pasture land and woodlands to remote and isolated mountainous terrain.

Great Britain is a top tourist destination. It is a country of a great variety of historical and architectural sights and a motherland of Shakespeare, The Beatles, and Robin Hood. While you enjoy the top class hunting, your family can have a good time shopping in London or sightseeing in the heart of the country. After the hunt you and yours can explore ancient castles, go on a whale watching cruise, see local malt whisky being made or delight in some entrancing garden.
To my mind, there is a peculiar fascination in hunting the mule deer. By the time hunting season has arrived the buck is no longer the slinking beast of the thicket, but a bold and yet wary dweller in the uplands. Theodore Roosevelt
