Ian has been involved in shooting for over 30 years and is a passionate game shot. With a wealth of experience both in the field and on the school, Ian can certainly iron out those bad habits and perfect your shooting.
Ian joined the NHS as a groundsman after school, became head gardener in 1987 and has remained in this position ever since. Ian qualified as a shooting instructor in 2007 with the Scottish Clay Target Association so he could bring his years of experience to the clay shooting discipline to help all levels of shooters improve their shooting. He is Braidwood’s Head Instructor.
Ian has huge enthusiasm in introducing new shots, and particularly Young Shots to this great sport. Ian very much enjoys coaching out in the field as well. He has a very good eye for gun fits and can tell what gun would suit someone just by looking at them.
Ian also plays a key role within the Grounds team for the designing and setting up of the courses for all our competitions and events.
When not shooting Ian can be found picking up with his 3 Springer Spaniels, fishing or playing golf.
