Activities & Attractions

Easy access shooting experience for all : visit the 'Best Outdoor Adventure Experience' winner in the Scottish Outdoor Leisure Awards 2019, & TripAdvisor 'Hall of Fame' member with 94% rating for the area's only laser clay pigeon shooting : suitable for all from 10 years up. Introduced for the 2015 season, & proving ever more popular each year is laser clay pigeon shooting, or laserclays as it’s also known. Based on traditional clay pigeon shooting, laserclays instead uses deactivated 12-bore shotguns that have been adapted to fire an infrared beam. The clays are also adapted, being non-breaking & with a reflective strip to receive the hit from the beam. Hits are indicated by an electronic ‘shattering’ sound & a green light on the barrel, & are registered on the electronic scoreboard for all to see. The beauty of the system is that it permits up to five people to shoot at the same time, at the same clay, & to register double hits on the same clay, instead of individuals shooting one at a time & everybody else waiting their turn. The competitive element is therefore immediately enhanced, & everybody can see from the scoreboard how everybody else is getting on. After a few practice shots to get your eye in, a series of different games then gives the opportunity to test your accuracy & speed of shot, & to see how you rate against the rest of your group. A laserclays session of 1-2 hours (depending upon the size of group) will see you shoot at a minimum of 60 clays, & as shooting twice at each clay, taking a minimum of 120 shots. Compare that to the 25-50 clays & shots from a traditional clay pigeon shoot, & with pricing at a lower level aswell – from £32 per person & up depending upon the size of your group – we reckon that for a shooting experience it can’t be beaten. As there is no recoil from the gun, nor loud bangs when the trigger is pulled, it’s also a much gentler way to try shooting, & accordingly is more readily accessible & attractive to people that may be nervous of the idea of handling a traditional live shotgun, & also people of slighter build & younger years. We suggest a minimum age of 10-11 years for a full session, but younger children can easily try a few shots as part of a family session.
