    Despite economic uncertainties in recent years grouse moors have proved to be a sound capital investment. Rising values and sustained demand for prime moors mean owners should have done well over the last 10-20 years.

    In this year's edition of Grouse Moor news our experts look at some of the pressing issues for those with grouse moors, or who are looking to buy or lease a grouse moor. We look at the value of grouse moors to their local areas, as well as the advantages or leasing a moor compared with buying.

    If you're looking to buy a sporting estate or another rural property, try our farms and estates property search.
