Tillypronie is widely recognised as belonging in the ‘top drawer’ of Scottish sporting estates due to the first class driven game shooting it provides, the unrivalled setting of its mansion house and gardens, and its majestic position straddling Deeside and Donside on the eastern fringe of the Grampian mountains in Aberdeenshire.
Extending to just over 12,000 acres, Tillypronie Estate represents one of those rare properties in Scotland which has something for everybody. The estate boasts a remarkable diversity of landscape, including productive farmland, strategically planted woodland and forestry, and wide expanses of heather-clad moors rising to a high point of 2,862 feet at the summit of Morven on the south-western boundary.

"One of Scotland's most famous sporting estates"

Tillypronie is one of the pre-eminent names in the world of Scottish field sports. Historically it was one of the most prolific grouse moors in the Highlands, with a regular average of 2,000 brace a year during the 1960s and 1970s.
The estate has four named beats – the Morven and Deskry beats to the west of the A97 Deeside to Donside public road, and the Home Beat and Towie beat on the east side. These beats provide the opportunity for four separate days’ driven shooting when grouse stocks allow. The topography of the moor ensures some of the most exciting driven grouse shooting to be found anywhere, with the glorious views from each line of butts making a Tillypronie grouse day an especially thrilling sporting experience.
