Ayton Castle shoot in Berwickshire is managed by Thor Sondergaard; who 10 years ago, took on the challenge of building a completely new shoot from the ground up, transforming it into the success it is today.
"Three years ago I started a new challenge as I took on a second shoot within Dunglass Estate in East Lothian. I employed Brian Fairbairn to help run and manage these two shoots. There had not been a shoot at Dunglass for over ten years. Therefore, like Ayton we have built it up and created something very special. We always try to improve both shoots, with new and exciting drives." - Thor Sondergaard.
We can offer a challenging day’s sport on either estate, from a day’s rough shooting to a driven day on Pheasants. We also have drives to suit all abilities, from the novice to the most experienced gun; giving everyone the challenge they want.
Together, Ayton Castle and Dunglass Estate cover a mixture of 9000 acres of arable, grass, woodland and deep ravines which contribute to a varied, enriched and enjoyable shooting experience.
