This year?s top young Scottish gamekeeper is 20-year-old Graeme Dunlop, whose beat is the 14,000-acre North Drynachan moor on the Cawdor estate near Inverness.

Graeme won the Scottish Gamekeepers Association award after being nominated by North Highland College (NHC), where he studied, and Cawdor estate?s sporting manager Roddy Forbes, who described him as: ?Hard working, easy going and a pleasure to have on the estate.?

NHC lecturer David Shaw said: ?The work Graeme produced on red grouse management is some of the best student work that we have ever seen at the college.?
