Welcome to CR&GC’s website.

We are a full-bore rifle club affiliated to the NRA (No. C174) and STS (CL000083).  We operate under the approval of the Scottish Government (Ref. DDG 5/5 N1).

We shoot regularly at our range on Cawdor Estate at distances up to 600yds.

We shoot all year round, weather permitting.  Our range days cover all types of firearms and we have a selection of competitions - some more serious than others - to encourage participation at all levels.
