Covid info

We need you to contact us first so we can ensure we are able to meet all safety requirements. 

We are continually evolving to do everything we can to protect you and your family/friends - and us and our staff.  Our Instructors will teach at a safe distance of 2 metres for Adults over 18yrs.  Due to this restriction we are unable to teach Vulnerable Adults or Adults with Disabilities at this time - we hope it won't be long before we can return to supporting our disabled archers. 

Although Archery is not classified as a "Contact" Sport we require to be within 2 metres when teaching beginners, especially children, young adults and vulnerable adults.

So why the restricted group sizes? 

We have a high ratio of Instructor to Child/Young Person, this means our staff are expected to work closely with other "households".  To ensure compliance with Government "household" guidelines and to protect our Staff and our Visitors, we need to limit group sizes until May. 

So if you are planning something big - then give us a shout as soon as possible!

So how are we going to protect you whilst you visit us?  All the equipment you will be using is not only disinfected between use, but also rotated, reducing the chances even more of catching anything from the equipment.  There will be strict limits, in line with social distancing, to the amount of people in the whole woods at one time, keeping you safer.  We are only promoting 1hr woodland archery fun sessions for local people at this time.  Until 27th April when we can welcome other visitors depending on Government Guidelines.  As an outdoor sport and being in woodland spaces, we can offer support for mental and physical well being. 

Toilet facilities are closed at present to ensure you keep safe and also our staff remain safe as we only have one portaloo.  It is understood that Covid 19 can survive for up to 72 hours on a toilet. Once "household" number restrictions lift in May,we can reopen the toilet facility and ensure it is clean and safe for use.

Tippy-Tap, foot activated, hand washing hygiene stations, are set up throughout the wood.  You are also welcome to wear face masks, this is optional as you will be outdoors continually.  Our staff will be wearing face masks or face shields and gloves.  We have done everything we can think of to ensure you are safe, so please help us too. 

Don't visit us if you are unwell, don't visit us if you have traveled from a different local authority area until restrictions lift, but DO book your future trip because no deposit is required and we really do look forward to sharing your special Woodland Archery Adventure!

In line with Sport Scotland Guidance we have a named Covid Officer, Elizabeth MacKinnon, who has completed the necessary, certificated course. Any queries can be directed to Elizabeth at bowhunterarchery@outlook.com

Thank you for your continued support of our small family business.
