Travel Home > Directory > Travel Events > 08 August > 12 Glorious Twelfth


The Glorious Twelfth or 12th August marks the traditional opening of the Red Grouse (Lagopus lagopus scoticus) shooting season. It is one of the busiest days in the shooting calendar and is a major boost to the rural economy. The Red Grouse is very much a wild bird and is not reared the way pheasants are. This contributes to their agility in the air and the Red Grouse represents a testing target for even the most experienced shooters.


Glorious Twelfth - wikipedia

The Glorious Twelfth is usually used to refer to August 12, the start of the shooting season for Red Grouse (Lagopus lagopus scoticus) and to a lesser extent the Ptarmigan (Lagopus muta) in the United Kingdom. This is one of the busiest days in the shooting season, with large amounts of game being shot. It is also a major boost to the rural economy.
