Craigadam is a Scottish sporting estate. There is 25,000 acres of shooting and stalking over farmland, moorland and woodland. Richard and Celia Pickup have together developed a remarkably successful shooting and fishing holiday business around the estate. Accommodation is of a very high standard with all rooms en-suite. Celia Pickup turns the local game into traditional meals that give visitors a chance to appreciate both Scottish cuisine and their own achievements.
