Women-only events have been planned throughout Scotland, ranging from clay pigeon shooting competitions to a simulated Macnab day at Gleneagles.

Claire Sadler said: “It was fantastic to launch BASC Women in Shooting at the Scottish Game Fair, and to see the enthusiasm for this initiative.

“BASC is playing a pivotal role in promoting fieldsports amongst women, and our events provide a wonderful opportunity for women to try out shooting.

“Across Scotland we have planned some tremendous Women in Shooting events, from a simulated MacNab day at Gleneagles to social events at Christmas.

“This event was a springboard for so much more to come.”
