- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
During the Middle Ages, throwing axes were a common weapon – capable of inflicting all sort of gruesome damage upon one’s enemies. Thankfully, today their use is confined to sport, and you needn’t be a battle-hardened warrior to join this fun-filled lesson.
Aviemore’s Inshriach estate provides an idyllic setting for the morning’s activity. Here, you’ll be met by your teacher, Tom, on his woodland throwing range. An experienced woodsman and self-taught axe slinger; Tom will demonstrate the proper technique, before stepping back for you to have a go. You’ll learn to throw two specially-designed axes – a tomahawk and a Wetterlings double bit – and will find there’s more to success than brute force alone. Axe throwing calls for a mastery of momentum and surprising levels of finesse, but – under Tom’s expert guidance – you’ll be hitting bullseyes in no time!
