Never ever in my wildest dreams could I ever have imagined 8 years ago when I started Glad Rags & Cartridge Bags that we would be so very lucky to hold our events at the locations that we have, private estates, castles, ancestral homes, gorgeous private country houses and hotels, her Majesty The Queens private estate and shooting Lodge Delnadamph and now here I am launching Glad Rags and Cartridge Bags at Glamis Castle.
It truly is a bit of a pinch me is it really happening moment, but I can assure you it really is. This is such a unique and special event, I am honoured and so very proud to be inviting you to join us at this exceptional occasion.
Glamis Castle has been the ancestral seat to the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne since 1372, inspiration for Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the childhood home of HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and birthplace of HRH The Princess Margaret.
On the day Glamis Castle is exclusively just for Glad Rags as it is the weekend before it opens to the public after it’s winter break.
It is open to ladies of all abilities of clay shooting, never held a gun to the more experienced shot. Come on your own or come with chums, ladies who have not been to a Glad Rags event before will be given a buddy to keep them company and to help introduce them to other ladies.
