Great family fun. A unique experience that the whole family can enjoy. We tried our hand at archery, axe throwing and air rifle shooting. With the help of the patient and friendly instruction from both Dan and Matt, we managed to all get the target! A really enjoyable experience for all ages!! Highly recommend if you’re ever in Skye.


Fab day out! Had a brilliant day doing archery and axe throwing with Dan . Excellent instructor with a great sense of humour. The three of us came away with huge smiles on our faces- definitely a day to be repeated 🙂

Susan G.

Bunch of 1st timers for archery. The 2 six year olds had a ball, marvellous tuition, lovely guy, very hot on safety but made the session great fun for all of us.

Clara C.

We wanted to do something a bit different after a few days of walking and came across this place. Matt the owner was so helpful and such a great instructor! We tried clay pigeon shooting and axe throwing and had the best afternoon ever. Would highly recommend trying some of the activities if you are in Portree (even on a rainy day as there is shelter for some activities).

AXE Throwing

Yes, that’s right, Axe Throwing!! Don’t be scared, you are in good hands. Try a number of different types of axe out for size in the ultimate stress reliever. Learn the skills required before setting a score and seeing if your friends can beat it.

A.C.E Academy

A.C.E Academy and its Highland woodland base will, at the same time as nurturing and strengthening its community and local environment, allow the community to nurture it and improve it for the future generations to enjoy and learn from.

Target Archery

Try your hand at this ancient art using modern recurve bows designed specifically for taster target archery. Learn the basics and soon you will be hitting gold. Maybe challenge your instructor to a competition at the end if you are feeling confident.

Clay Shooting

The ultimate target sport, where you’re target is flying through the Skye! Once fitted with your gun and some safety equipment your instructor will guide you through the basics and have you breaking your first clay. Once you have felt the thrill you will be hooked!

Airgun Range

The fully covered Airgun Range at A.C.E Base is a perfect, all weather, experience. Try out Air Rifle Shooting for the first time, or hone your existing skills at our purpose built range. Our BRAND NEW Air Guns are all very quiet but that doesn’t mean your session won’t end with a bang!
