County Clays

Located just an hours drive from Edinburgh, Glasgow and 40 minutes from Dundee, County Clays is a shooting centre within the 280 acre Dunkeld Estate. This is one of the most scenic shooting facilities in Scotland. Visitors can come to the shooting just for the activities or can also stay at the Dunkeld House Hotel which offers rooms, suites and two annex buildings.

A SCSTG provider, the clay shooting ground was built in 1990 by the late Sir Reo Stakis who was a keen shot and long time head of Stakis Hotels, the former owners of Dunkeld House Hotel.

The shooting centre is the largest sporting clay pigeon range in Scotland consisting of 14 stands each incorporating six to nine different targets from bolting rabbits and driven grouse to fast pheasants.

Each May the ground runs it’s famed ‘Saints and Sinners’ charity competition.
