Matt is delightful, charming and hilarious. Plus an excellent axe thrower and great archery instructer. We arrived a little early for our archery and were invited to spectate while 2 young ladies tried axe throwing. We were then allowed to also try axe throwing with hilarious results. Matt gives great instructions prior to letting you loose with a bow and... More

Honestly had a great deal of fun with Matt and grown up kids. Matt shared his passion, experience and knowledge of the isle of Skye. He shows respect for safety which is coupled with stories and laughs. I recommend this experience for all.

We had our third visit to Matt since he moved to Portree and he was on fine form as ever treating us to an archery competition which once again brought out the competitiveness in both of us (I won this time haha!)

First thing I noticed was how amazing this place looks! Matt has been very resourceful in improving and building structures for the main shed and shelters for the different activities on offer, everything has a lot of character and much is done with recycled materials. Matt himself is a really nice and fun guy with great conversational skills. Me and... More

We spent a morning learning to throw axes and shoot clay pigeons, was so much fun! Matt patiently guided us through the basics and we were pros in no time at all, hahaha. I really enjoyed throwing stuff at targets despite not getting things to stick to targets very often, and hubby really enjoyed the clay shooting. Hope hubby's top... More

What a fun and educational experience we had! Although we had only originally booked to do axe throwing, after asking Matt lots of questions about archery he kindly gave us a lesson in archery too, at no extra cost! Neither my boyfriend or I had tried axe throwing before and Matt was great at putting us at ease and encouraging... More

Weather was not the best for walk so we gave air rifles, clay shooting and axe throwing a go. Was great fun keeping the competitive and not so competitive entertained for a few hours. Matt was a very patient and safety oriented instructor who was great with our small group. I highly recommend this activity to anyone for something different... More

I had a great time learning to throw axes and some other sharp objects here. The unique idea of trying axe throwing caught my eye immediately. It is a class and an experience. We booked online and were met with a fire on our arrival. He has even built a shelter so this can be done comfortably on a rainy... More

Spent a great 3 hours plus with Matt doing Archery & Axe Throwing, group of 3 adults & 1 teenager. Was interesting, fun & informative and the first time you nail the Axe Throwing - what a great feeling. Matt was a great instruction & we would totally recommend to others.
