I took Ursula to the Hilltop Shooting Club for her first ever shooting experience. She was so excited and a little scared. David looked after us really well and clearly explained everything we needed to do. He suggested a competition which we all agreed to. I was feeling a little confident as I had shot many times before. Ursula scored... More

We booked in advance, which is recommended. I had never done clay pigeon shooting before and visited with my teenage son. This was amazing and definitely one to put on your to do list. We got expert tuition on safety and told exactly what was expected and how to handle the shotgun. We had so much fun. Safety being paramount... More

I'd always wanted to shoot a gun and finally got to do it in Hilltop the week before last. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed, tutored and bid farewell in the most genuinely friendly and courteous manner. The excitement and adrenaline really got us into a competitive mood and the encouragement from our tutor really had us wanting... More

I brought my husband here for his birthday. I don't like guns or shooting so I was not looking forward to it but I knew he would love it. Well, I have to hold my hands up (pardon the pun!) and admit that it was a blast! The clay pigeon shooting was way more fun than I would ever have... More

Spent a morning here rifle shooting - Dave is a friendly and laid-back tutor (and not Dutch!!!) and after showing us the ropes we had a mini competition. I've never fired a rifle before but got on well with it and was only 4 points behind the winner. It's a lot easier for a lady than clay pIgeon shooting and... More

Hi everyone, do you like shooting? Good, Positive: they brief you how to shoot. Negative: you must love shooting. TO CONCLUDE: nice as one-off experience, why? Boring. Ciao

My sister and I had never shot a gun before. Hilltop Shooting Club handed us shotguns, gave us lessons in safety and we had a wonderful time shooting clay. The area is beautiful and the staff was friendly. We had a shooting competition. This would be a good activity for a small group.
