Scottish fieldsports industry denied coronavirus help

Field sports businesses in Scotland are being specifically denied help in the Scottish government’s handouts.

The coronavirus fund, which is being administered across the UK, offers up to £10,000 in grants to small businesses affected by the pandemic. But on Scottish application forms there is a list of exempted businesses which may not apply for funds.

These include; ‘Deer Forest’, ‘Fishing Hut’, ‘Gallop’, ‘Game Larder’, ‘Pigeon Loft’, and ‘Shootings’.

Countryside organisation BASC reports hearing from many shooting businesses in Scotland that they are being denied help, including a shooting business in Aberdeenshire and a sporting agency in Perthshire.
