THE MACNAB DAY

The day incorporates shooting a shotgun, shooting a rifle and fly fishing. Each group will get to shoot some truly exciting clays in our grouse butts, learn the calm and skill required to shoot a .243 rifle as well as being taught the delicate art of fly fishing on our lake.

 

Structured as follows: Our ‘Macnab’ Day pays homage to John Buchan’s thrilling novel from 1925, in which three prominent Scottish landowners received a challenging note telling them that ‘John Macnab’ intends to poach from their estates without being caught. He succeeded! With this in mind, WLSS presents the ‘Macnab’ challenge.
