The importance of grouse shooting and moorland management in supporting fragile rural communities is highlighted in a new report published today by Scotland’s Rural College and the University of the Highlands and Islands’ Centre for Mountain Studies at Perth College.
The report examines community perceptions and the socio-economic impacts of grouse shooting and moorland management in Scotland. The findings are also supported by the release today of ‘The Untold Story: Driven Grouse Shooting’ – a feature film made by gamekeepers from the Angus Glens Moorland Group demonstrating the impact on local communities.
The report focused on two areas of Scotland - the Angus Glens and the Monadhliaths.
