The range at Lauder, set in the grounds of Thirlestane Castle, is the ideal setting for the NSRA Scottish Rifle Meeting. Many shooters have provided constructive feedback regarding improvements. The Rifle Committee have listened to the points raised by competitors and because this is the 100th Meeting we have sanctioned the below range improvements:

  1. The firing point is being raised, levelled and covered with new matting.
  2. Protection from intrusion by cattle for future years
  3. The grass will be cut early this year.

You may have seen the Commemorative Booklet celebrating the 100th Meeting. If you have not received your copy or would like additional copies please contact Sue Warren at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Once again there will be no demotions at Scotland as this was seen by some competitors as a barrier to entry especially if they had only just been promoted at the previous Bisley Meeting.

There will be a Special Raffle drawn using each competitor’s number and volunteers will also be included in this draw. To date the raffle prizes include:

  • Free entry to NSRA Bisley Meeting Aggregate 2019
  • Free entry to NSRA Scottish Meeting Aggregate 2020
  • Voucher for 1 nights B & B at the George & Abbotsford Hotel, Melrose

The NSRA invite the donation of more prizes.

We look forward to welcoming you to Lauder and feel sure you will enjoy the event.
