Tain Rifle and Pistol Club has made an asset transfer request to purchase 5.3 hectares at Ardlarach Quarry to secure a suitable and safe venue to conduct target shooting. The Club has leased the site since 1981 and it will continue to provide a parking area, outdoor shooting range and clay target shooting area, with the Club’s buildings being used as a clubroom, indoor range, kitchen and disabled toilets. The rest of the site will continue to be used as a safety area and will not be developed in any way.
