Video: Grouse season opens

When the grouse shooting season opened in 1937, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and guests of the Duke of Buccleuch were amongst the first to shoot on the Glorious Twelfth at Durisdeer, one of the finest grouse moors in Scotland.

The footage shows the shooting party, dressed in tweed and carrying shotguns, walking through the grouse moor.
