Moorland

The moorlands of the Cromdale hills and the Ladder hills encircle the estate and in late summer the purple tones of the bell heather and ling form a beautiful backdrop to the landscape.

Whether enjoying a low level walk through the moorlands or exploring the high hill tops keep an eye out for:

  • Red grouse
  • Hen harrier
  • Merlin
  • Golden eagle
  • Adder
  • Juniper
  • Curlew

Don't forget - ground nesting birds are sensitive to disturbance in Spring, keep dogs on leads!  

Grouse shooting takes place during August and September. Check shoot dates here.
