The term ghillie derives from the Gaelic 'gille' meaning a boy or servant and is used for a man, or boy, who attends to someone while on a hunting or fishing trip. A ghillie can also be employed as a gamekeeper by a landowner to prevent poaching, control predators and monitor the health of the wildlife on the estate.
