Our success is turning grouse moors into wild moors

2023: Scottish Water bans new grouse shooting leases on its estate

In response to growing recognition of the environmental impacts of grouse moor management, Scottish Water committed to not issuing any new grouse shooting leases across its 55,000 acre upland estate. Ahead of its final grouse shooting lease coming to an end in 2027, the company will perform a review to decide on the best options going forward for managing its land for biodiversity and sustainability.
