Three Angus sporting estates have come together to raise more than 20,000 for a local community centre.
Millden, Gannochy and Dalhousie estates organised a grouse shoot in aid of the Glenesk Retreat and Museum, a facility that attracts thousands of visitors each year.
At the Millden shoot the shooting party gathered at the Retreat, returning there for tea at the end of an excellent day on the moor, despite the foggy conditions.
Richard Cooke, factor for Dalhousie Estates, said the estates wanted to do something to support the community in the Angus glens.
He explained: “The Glenesk Retreat is at the heart of the glen community where most of the local employment and many of the households are connected with the grouse moors.
“It is a vital resource run by the Glenesk Trust for the people of the glen and provides a number of seasonal jobs.
“The three estates are pleased to be able to contribute towards the ongoing costs of this irreplaceable community asset.
“We hope the money raised will ensure this excellent facility remains available for everyone who visits the Angus area to enjoy.”
Councillor Bob Myles, chairman of the Glenesk Trust, said: “On behalf of the trust and the people of the glen I would like to say how much we appreciate the generous donation from the three estates in the glen and thank them very much for their support.”
