The Country Pursuits Collection


We love seeing the images of Her Majesty The Queen enjoying her summers in the heart of the Scottish countryside at Balmoral and Christmas at Sandringham in the Norfolk countryside.

During the weekend at Windsor, Her Majesty is often seen on horseback enjoying the grounds and parkland.

We are inviting you to immerse yourself in the country pursuits enjoyed by The Queen and her family in the royal and aristocratic estates across the country.

Lord Maurice Fermoy will be delighted to host your clients during game and clay shoots at the best shooting estates in the country.

He will share the complete inside story about shooting with the royals and help your clients to enjoy the etiquette and traditions that go with these wonderful traditional country pursuits.
