Ballathie House Hotel and Estate is situated in the heart of Perthshire and within 30 minutes of some of the most prestigious sporting estates in Scotland

World-renowned Royal Estates such as Scone Palace, Atholl and Glamis are within close proximity of Ballathie and provide some of the finest grouse shooting in Scotland.

Drives and the number of days or guns vary by estate and are held on moor, field and woodland. Many traditional methods of stalking and shooting remain, including the use of dogs and ponies. These are teamed with every modern comfort to make your event something really special.

A favourite of Ballathie is Glenprosen estate.  A traditional Scottish mixed sporting estate, offering the trio of highland field sports with unbeatable hospitality; driven grouse shooting, red deer stalking and fishing for salmon. The estate’s 16,500 acres lie at the top of the Glen, at the end of a single track road, straddling the south-eastern boundary of the Cairngorms National Park. For all its welcome seclusion, Glenprosen Estate is a mere 30 minute drive from Ballathie with stunning scenery enroute. Salmon are caught on Glenprosen’s Kercock Beat on the River Tay, offering over 2 miles of double bank fishing, just 5 minutes from Ballathie's Beat.  Further details can be found here.
