We had such a great experience here. Ron our instructor was really great. As a first timer myself I was a little apprehensive, however Ron quickly changed my mindset with three words, PMA ;-), legend! We would highly recommend this to anyone who would like a new experience or to polish up on previous skills and best of all have a bit of fun!

What a fantastic experience! Easy to book, great value for money and extremely friendly and helpful instructor. Highly recommend the introductory course for those who have not shot before, or looking for a refresh. Looking forward to going back soon!

Went for an introductory session with my son in early December 2017. The information and time spent introducing us to all of the principles, equipment, safety procedures, and so on were very good. Very patient, very detailed and took all the time necessary to make sure we knew what we were doing and what to expect.

My son was equipped with a 20 bore supplied by the centre, and I had a 12 bore. We tried clays from 3 different traps and by the end were trying doubles from the final trap. Instruction during the session was helpful, patient, constructive and highly effective, great morning out , really enjoyable. The only downside was my son hitting more clays than me!

Had a very fun morning learning how to shoot. Derek was a fantastic teacher and lots of fun. I would definitely recommend a visit here.

I came here with a friend on the Saturday the 25th of November, to have a go as we had not done clay pigeon shooting before.
It was a delight, the instructor (Stewart I think) was very friendly and very professional. 
It was a bit pricey but compared to the other centres in the area (there wasn't many) the prices were at the competitive rate. 
Also the other staff in the reception area were friendly too. 
Would certainly recommend to a friend.

Attended the centre as a group of friends for a 30th birthday. The instructors were great, made us feel at ease with the guns and safe but also up for a laugh. We had a shot of both shooting in the air and also at "rabbit" level. Great fun and would highly recommend!

We (daughter and I) went for a standard class. Instructor was Stewart.

There was a mixture of experience with guns between us but Stewart worked round that extremely well. Couldn’t speak highly enough of the tuition and the information on clay shooting in general.

Facilities were very good for this type of venue. It wasn’t particularly busy but the venue is very well laid out and can clearly handle a high number of shooters at the same time. Would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the shooting Centre. If you have shot before or just want to see what it’s like for the first time it is well worth a visit.

A fantastic facility with a great range of challenges for all skill levels. It was my first time and with the instruction it went very well. The instructors are very welcoming and friendly too

Richie Lyons, July 2017
Had a great time at shoot and the tuition from Ron was exception. Definitely will be doing this again, well worth travelling for...

Nicky Lucking, July 2017
Went for my partners 50th birthday, wanted something different to do. Had a great time, the staff were very supportive and friendly. Ron was great as an instructor, he was very patient, took his time to explain where I was going wrong. I did not feel rushed or under pressure to end the session. We booked to return in two weeks time. Thank you for the lovely experience.

Darren Stenhouse, June 2017
A brilliant facility suitable for all. Friendly welcome and superb instruction from Ron who had us hitting the clays pretty much from the off! If you've never tried clay shooting before, you've got to try the Scottish Clay Shooting Centre. It really is a hidden gem. But be warned, you might get hooked! 

Will be booking another lesson soon.

Daniel Woodhouse, June 2017
Had a great afternoon at the Scottish Clay Shooting Centre. Brought my girlfriend along for her first ever go with a shot gun. She was quite nervous at the start but Derek our instructor was great and soon had her shooting and hitting targets! She now can't wait to come back and try again.

Steven Goldie, March 2017
My mate and I had the intermediate lesson gift vouchers. Awesome experience, will definitely be back. The instructor, Ron was fantastic his patience and tuition had us shooting like top marksmen by the end of the lesson. Would recommend it for anyone.

Jodie Downie, January 2017
Took my sister here today for our first ever try at clay pigeon shooting and it was amazing a huge thanks to George for making us feel at ease and making us laugh the entire time! I would definitely recommend this and will be back!
