Bowhill Shootimage

The main drives which can include ‘Black Andrew’ will show off the height of the birds on offer and even for the most experienced guns they will certainly test their skills.

Welcome to Hawthorn Sporting

Bowhill Country Estate has been owned by the Buccleuch family for more than seven centuries and has been a successful sporting estate for many years.  We have leased the Bowhill Shoot from the Duke of Buccleuch and have been running it as a private shoot since April 2012.

Spreading across 36,000 acres of some of Scotland's most celebrated scenery.  It stretches from just past Philipshaugh up the Yarrow and Ettrick Valley's and west to the edge of St. Mary's Loch.  The Estate encapsulates a premier sporting experience with challenging terrain amidst a dramatic and challenging landscape.

The Pheasant Shoot at Bowhill has long enjoyed a first-class reputation for producing some of the highest pheasants in the Borders, with its most famous “Black Andrew” drive  and "Kidney Wood" drive in the Yarrow Valley offering a challenge for the discerning shooter.  With a choice of over 19 drives, the drives which traditionally had been slightly easier are now proving to be more of a challenge with the addition of partridge being presented over the guns.
