London Best

Westlands Shooting Ground, near Annan

Recommended Posts

Must explain I am not really a clay shooter, but do dabble for a play now and then. At the weekend I delivered a repaired gun for a friend who lives close to the Scottish border. As a thank you he took me on Saturday  to Westlands clay ground near Annan. Apparently it is a relatively new venture, having been taken over by a young couple. I found it very impressive. They have a campground/caravan site, lots of good stands, well laid out stone roads, golf buggies for the geriatric shooters, fishing lakes and a very good cafe. I would recommend it if anyone is looking for a day/weekend out.

Couldn't agree more. It's fast becoming a regular feature on our 'playtime' days, only being around an hour away.

Heading there in the Caravan shortly. Taking the gun as well.

They hav another site in Jedburgh which is a golfists site.  Which is nice for the lurchers.

It is a great ground with a fantastic high tower.

Last time I was there they had the tower up at 70m driving down over 70 metres to the ground left to right it was a real tester! Followed by a 60 metre direct overhead driven! Fantastic pair!

Yep. Have just got to grips with this tower, only to be told they are raising it. 🙂

Was there last week and stayed 4 days. Great ground and really testing with the wind I had when there. Caravan site is pretty good as well.

Will be heading back because I really enjoyed the clay ground. Met an independent instructor while shooting and had an impromptu lesson as well.

 

Cartridge prices are among the cheapest as well so picked up a 1000 while I was there.
