Cardney Estate Announcement

Hendry, Ramsay & Waters (Worldwide) Ltd are delighted to announce that the company has secured the sporting lease of Cardney Estate, Dunkeld, Perthshire. Due to the busy schedules of Katriona and Lewis Cameron who own Cardney Estate, all future letting and management of the sporting activities of the estate will be handled by HRW. Vernon Waters has a 23-year association with Cardney so the transition will be seemless.
Twenty five years ago, the Grouse population in the area had fallen and the late owner of Cardney, David Hendry, had the foresight to introduce Partridge to the hill. Katriona, his daughter and her husband Lewis have continued that vision by evolving with the times and have introduced several new drives showing high birds that will challenge the most accomplished shot.
The Estates' shooting and stalking extends to over two thousand spectacular acres. Two thirds of the shooting and stalking are set in heather clad moorland and hill with the remaining ground being of ancient oak woodland, larch and spruce plantations and some two hundred and thirty acres of permanent pasture.

Cardney Estate nestles in the hills above the Hamlet of Butterstone some four miles east of Dunkeld and the A9 making ideally located as a central point from the Scottish cities Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Dundee.
The Estate has some of the most picturesque landscape in Perthshire rising from Butterstone Loch set in the Lunan Valley to the amphitheatre of rocks perched high on the hills above.
The Partridge are mainly driven over heather moorland and hill and Pheasants are driven from varied mature ancient oak woodlands, mixed Larch and Spruce plantations and, not forgetting our high rocky outcrops the most famous of which are North Spooky and Spooky Valley providing plenty of high birds, making Cardney a very hard shoot to replicate. We ensure very challenging sport over diverse terrain.
We offer driven partridge and pheasant days from 100-500 bird days. You will enjoy a range of drives including high challenging birds over a variety of terrain. Cardney is Scotlands' biggest small estate.
September brings the start of the Partridge season, while October onward offers Partridge and Pheasant.

The Estate has some superb but limited Duck flighting available, with six flight ponds to choose from. The predominant species are Mallard, Teal and Widgeon. Canada, Greylag Geese also visit the flight ponds on occasion.
Cardney carries a healthy population of Fallow Does over its stalking area with only a small number of mature Fallow Bucks in residence. However, we have an influx of Bucks starting in early September in preparation for the rut in October. Stalking is mainly carried out on the open hill and in the ancient oak woodlands. 
There is Roe Buck stalking available on the estate which is predominately carried out on the hill ground with a few Bucks being shot on the low ground. In the main part these animals tend to be pretty and uniformed Scottish hill Bucks.
The best periods for Roe Buck stalking on Cardney are May, June and August.
