A Highlanders Guns Return Home

The Southern 2024

We are busily preparing some fine Scottish guns to take to The Southern Classic Side by Side Championship and Exhibition, which takes place at Deep River Sporting Clays, Sanford, in North Carolina, April 25th to 28th. We are again holding our Scottish Round-Action Challenge and bringing a beautiful Ballantyne foundry cast bronze of a red Grouse for the winner, and our friends at S. Delaney & Sons will be hosting our first Dickson Owners Club gathering in the USA for 2024. You can find out more about this great event here

Will you be taking this trophy home?

A Highlanders Guns Return Home

We have recently come into the possession of two MacNaughton guns that belonged to a real Highlander - Robert Stewart Fisher of Balquhidder. A master shot, chief ploughman, respected sheep breeder, boisterous soldier and accomplished fiddle player, we present the two guns with a fantastic story of their ownership here
