I’m Steve Brazendale, The Scottish Countryman


I’ve got more than 35 years of expertise as a countryman and a passion for teaching people about the countryside.

I do this through unique experiences in archery, birds of prey, and fly-fishing.

I don’t combine bookings or mix groups, so I tailor your experience to you.

Whether you book as a single, a couple, a family or a group, your experience is always one-to-one with me.

The whole experience was just brilliant. I can’t recommend The Scottish Countryman enough.

Countryside Consultant

For over 30 years, I worked with sporting estates across Scotland. If you’re buying an estate in Scotland, or you wish to review your estate’s productivity, I can help.

I advise on income streams for sporting estates :

  • deer management

  • forestry

  • hydro and biomass schemes

  • guest out door activities

An Incredible Experience!
I cannot recommend Steven’s operation more highly and I consider an afternoon with the Scottish Countryman a real “must do” if you’re lucky enough to find yourself in the East Neuk of Fife!
