A day's archery

I pre-booked this as part of my holiday at forest holidays Ardgartan, Argyll. I would recommend taking walking or Wellington boots as the field is muddy. With the correct shoes strap in for an hour's worth of hurling arrows.

The instruction was clear and advice appreciated. Don't expect to hit the middle at first. But even I hit the yellow a few times 🙂

Well worth it.
