Chairman’s Announcement

Dear friends and fellow shooters
We regret to inform you that Glenmoriston Shooting Ground will be closing its gates forever.
Our lease expires on the last day of April 2023.
After that date, the site will no longer operate as a trap shooting ground.
We would like to thank all our customers who have visited us over the years, and been with us through the ups and downs.
Glenmoriston Shooting Ground always sought to be a friendly place to visit, and this would never have happened without its customers.
We would particularly like to thank people who have worked with us throughout our tenancy.
Without their help the shooting ground would not have been able to exist.
We are proud of the ground we built up over the years, seeing it flourish as numbers grew, working hard to improve the quality of the facilities.
This site has been part of Scottish, British and international shooting for over 45 years, and will always hold associated memories.
It is with a heavy heart that I post this, however I felt it important that you all know as soon as possible.
All best wishes
WJL
Chair.
