Blair Atholl is situated just off the A9. Take the first signposted exit.
To get to the range;
When you enter the village, across the road from the Tilt Hotel and just before the bridge, you will see a small road on the right, signposted for Fenderbridge. Take that small road and just follow it for about 800m until you reach the first road on the left, turn left there and go down into a steep, tight corner and under a little footbridge. Follow the road as it goes up hill and turns right, keeping a wall on your left. After about 500m the road will split, keep to the right, going uphill through a field.
The road will descend again to a junction, turn right at the junction and go up the hill past a large farmhouse on the right. Just follow the road, it is quite bumpy. Keep going for about 800m. The road will pass by another large farmhouse on the left, at that point the road gets rougher, so slow down, just follow the track into the trees and keep going for another 500m, when you come out of the trees you will be at the 1,100yds firing point. Drive carefully and avoid speeding, the road to the range is used by walkers, locals and livestock, there is a speed limit of 15mph, in particular drive slowly past the Estate Ranger’s house at the bottom of the steep hill.
The co-ordinates for the 1,000yd firing point are: 287620,768825
The postcode for the Atholl Arms in the village is: PH18 5SG.
