Review on Simulated Day at Auldgirth Shooting Ground by Alan Finlay

We arrived at the shooting ground to the smell of freshly frying bacon. Just the start one need’s for a day of shooting. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful and nothing was any trouble to them.


We had 5 drives over the day which were fast, furious and great fun. The drives were well organised and all instructions were clear and understood by all.


We had 3 drives then in for lunch, and Kaz had put on a fantastic spread which could have fed us 3 times over. Then we went out for another 2 drives, then in for coffee, scones and pastries.


The simulated day that Davie puts on is well worth the money. In fact we had such a great day we are already booked in for another day.


We would recommend the simulated day to any group.

Review on JCG Fieldsports Duck Flight by Alan Finlay Ayrshire Country Sports Club

We arrived at the prearranged meeting point at the edge of Luce Bay an hour or so before dark. Where we had a very warm welcome by John himself, it was explained very well as to where we were going to go and to what was going to happen.

We then headed of in 4x4 vehicles to within ¼ mile or so from the ponds. Because we had some novice guns in our party John suggested we use 2 ponds to split the guns up. And as dark fell the duck came in as guaranteed.

Both ponds performed well and all 7 in our party took duck home. There was a nice mix of mallard and teal in the bag. Finished the evening off with a quick coffee before we all went on our merry ways.

We are waiting for John to contact us as I write this as the geese are arriving into the area. We are also considering doing some club walked up days for woodcock and snipe, also for some group stalking as all of the JCG Fieldsports are the most competitively priced in SW Scotland.

In short a fantastic night was had by all and would highly recommend JCG Fieldsports.

Review on Forest Estate Experiences Andrew Case 
by Alan Finlay Ayrshire Country Sports Club

On arrival at venue our first impressions were that the ground was well laid out. good parking, good access, clean and tidy, well maintained and we were greeted with a complimentary coffee and some of the best shortbread around.


Before setting off to shoot we were given a run down on where all the different layouts were which was great upfront knowledge. A fantastic day was had shooting an array of targets suitable from novice guns right through the range to very challenging for the more experienced guns. Which was great as our party was made up of mixed abilities.


A lovely path system through the woodland giving access to Red Stag, Crows Nest, Duck Pond, Rabbit Hutch, Bolting Rabbit, Bottom Wood, Rough Shooting MacFlurry, Flushing Fox to name but a few. All stands were extremely well laid out with more than adequate gun racks and seating all within keeping of a woodland.


A great day was had and we will certainly go back as an away day. We highly recommend this venue, but please give Andrew a ring on
+44(0) 7747691447 as they are open Sat/Sun but its best to confirm before arriving. Below is a link to Forest Estates (Andrew Case) for more info
