Grouse. Blood Sports. Land.

Almost a fifth of Scotland is managed for grouse shooting. The true extent of grouse moors in Scotland is unclear but they are estimated to cover somewhere between 1 million and 1.5 million hectares, between 12-18% of our country’s landmass. The grouse shooting industry proudly claim that it contributes £32 million to the Scottish economy. This means that almost a fifth of Scotland produces only 0.02 percent of our total GDP figure while adding a huge cost that Scotland just cannot afford.
