Country Sports

Scotland is widely recognised as the birthplace of many of the world’s premier country sports.


It is estimated that the value of country sports tourism to Scotland is in the region of £155m per year. In the UK there are over 4 million country sports participants, with many more overseas including 38 million in the USA.


To help develop the full potential of this market, 2004 saw the major Scottish country sporting organisations and associations set up the Scottish Country Sports Tourism Group (CSTG).
