Experience Clay Shooting with Scotland’s Clay Champion

Whether you’re new to shooting or an experienced shot, Winton Castle near Edinburgh has a reputation for challenging clay pigeon shooting.

You will experience the thrill and excitement of shooting clays with our clay pigeon maestro, Billy Gordon, or one of his team of local, East Lothian clay shooting experts.

Billy is 24 times Scottish clay shooting champion, twice Irish clay champion, and once British clay pigeon champion. He is a natural shooting tutor with lots of patience, so novices as well as experienced guns quickly benefit from his sharp eye. Billy will also entertain you with his novel shooting displays!

Please note that clay shooting must be pre-booked. We can only cater for clay groups of 6 or more guests, however, if your group is smaller you can contact us for a bespoke quote. We also regret that we are not able to host clay shoots on a Sunday.

Clay Pigeon Shooting near Edinburgh for Corporate & Incentive Events, Hen and Stag Parties

Groups of up to 40 guest shooters can be accommodated at any one time. Please be aware that for larger groups, we can provide several other exciting activities at the same time, on rotation.

The purpose-built shooting stands are located in our private woods adjacent to the castle. They have been carefully designed to cater for all abilities (despite their fearsome names!), and could include: Pigeon Pair, Whistling Woodcock, Running Rabbit, High Pheasant and Towering Teal.

Clays can be adjusted to provide both easy and challenging shots to develop and test your shooting techniques. We tend to use low recoil cartridges to reduce the kickback from the gun.

Typical options are three to five stands over a 1 to 1.5 hour period with the option of additional activities. All Clay Pigeon Shooting sessions start with some practice shots, then move into competition mode.

Please advise on booking if you have shot before. Prizes are awarded for both winner and loser (or ‘pheasant’s friend’, as we like to call it!)
