We would like to encourage newcomers to the sport of clay pigeon shooting to come
along and try out our DTL (Down The Line), ABT (Automatic Ball Trap), SKT (National
Skeet) and Compak Sporting facilities at our shooting ground. The club gun can be
used by anybody who would like to try clay shooting, or beginners who don’t have
their own equipment yet.
Experienced shooters are also welcome and some of our competitions are SCTA registered
events, plus there is a Skeet Series and DTL Winter Series too!. There are also
a few 50 target competitions for the less adventurous
All shoots including practices are STEEL or non-lead shot only.
Cartridges will be available at the ground from Angus Cameron. It should be noted
that they are from personal stock and will therefore be available in small numbers
for visitors, beginners and other shooters who don't have shotgun certificates. Regular
steel shooters and local members should buy direct from suppliers such as R.MacLeod
& Son (Tain), Trap & Field Supplies (Lhanbryde) or other stockist.
Practices are now on Thursdays from 18:00 and Sundays from 12:00 when there aren't
competitions. The club will be open while there are shooters at the club but practice
will be at the discretion of whoever has opened up.
Prices for practice are currently:-
Adults\Veterans - £4 members
Juniors - FREE members

We regret to inform you that Sandy Gall died after a heart attack on Sunday morning.
Sandy has been involved with Highland Deephaven for a long time and has been on
the committee for several years, more recently being Chairman and Field Captain.
He took an active roll in keeping the ground looking nice, repairing traps and general
maintenance on the clubhouse.
His love of shooting extended further than this, as he was also enjoyed small bore
rifle shooting with Tain Rifle Club, was secretary for Ross & Cromarty Sports Council
and joined the Scottish Clay Target Association board as DTL representative. The
later had more recently led him to push to get a ground ready to hold the European
and World Championships in Scotland.
Sandy also shot in the Scottish DTL Team for several years and just last month won
the Tom Shanks trophy for the Scottish Super Veterans High Gun.
He will be greatly missed not only at Deephaven, but by the shooting fraternity.
Our thoughts are with the family.
