      • "Midcalder Clay Shooting is an outright-outstanding day out! We got the double gunner (60 shots... seriously recommended to ensure you get completely hooked) & even better still, we ended up with an instructor named Ian. Remember the Name “Ian”, the old boy is an absolute legend and if you get him as your instructor, then you’re going to have a stirling time. Would we go again? Heck yes and a big thanks to the team and again IAN for making the day epically brilliant!"
