We meet at Muirhouse Farm, adjacent to Strathblane Country House Hotel on the A81 just outside Strathblane.
Follow the farm track and park on the right-hand side, look for the red flag which will be flying, this is the entrance.
Visitors and prospective members are invited to join us on the first Saturday of every month at 13:30 (1.30pm) for a tour and safety induction session.
Please note, we require photographic identification and proof of address from all new visitors.
On entering the club please make yourself known and you will be made welcome.
The club’s members usually meet on a Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm all year round,
and on a Wednesday evening during the summer months (Generally 6pm till dusk)
As we shoot outdoors, it is, therefore, advisable to wear warm waterproof clothes and footwear.
Most air gunners choose to shoot either prone or sitting and use either a shooting mat or a camping chair,
However, a cushion in a plastic bag works just fine.
THE SHOOTING OF WILDLIFE IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED!
Your first visit is free, second and third visits cost £3.00 and you will be required to join thereafter if you wish to continue shooting at the grounds.

Westfield ARC is fully insured through NSRA, however, we do encourage shooters to obtain their own insurance cover.
We are affiliated to Scottish Target Shooting (STS), which was previously Scottish Air Rifle and Pistol Association (SARPA).
If you don’t have your own airgun most shooters will be happy to let you try theirs, we also have our own club guns for you to use.
However, if you do have your own airgun it will need to be chronographed to ensure it is under 12ft pounds for a rifle & 6ft pounds for a pistol, and the results recorded.
There is a club portacabin, covered practice range. Covered pistol range. Tea and Coffee with plenty of banter on tap.
The club has two 12 litre air cylinders for refilling PCP airguns, air is provided free with your membership.
