Welcome to the HDCPC website

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.

Steel Cartridges

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.

Next Shoot - 14th August

Sandy Gall

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.

A service will be held at

Inverness Crematorium on
