We tried out the crossbow and rifle shooting at Forest Estate but you can also do clay pigeon shooting. Very professional set up, great instruction from fully qualified APSI instructors, who not only cover safety aspects but give a useful insight into guns and their uses in country sports. Suitable for families, groups and individuals who want to learn or just hone their skills. Great day all round and will definitely return.

Reviewed 17 July 2013

Was on a touring holiday of Scotland and wanted to try clay pigeon shooting. Attempted to arrange through various providers found on line but none could fit me in - luckily! I spoke to Andrew Case(?) at Forrest Estate Experiences Dumfries and he just made it happen!
As a complete novice I found it reassuring that Andrew took the time to show myself and my wife Sharon the full run down on all things related to the sport. He took the time to run through all the safety aspects, selecting our dependent eye and how to get the best out of the day - all appreciated. You shoot from 4-5 different hides, representing different angles. From thinking we would be lucky to hit anything I managed about 22 out of 40 clays, and Sharon got about 19 out of 40 - although she says she won because it was down to the last shot (which she got)!
Thanks for a fantastic time, excellent value (stg 45 for 40 clays plus tuition) and highly recommended. Mike and Sharon QLD Australia
