Thirty competitors took part in one of the most popular events in Bute Clay Target Club’s calendar - the annual Boxing Day Shoot.

Strong east winds made for tricky shooting conditions at Kingarth, but that didn’t deter a healthy number of shooters travelling from the mainland to take part in the event.

Derek Brown from Dalry won the day’s ‘pull trap’ competition, a new addition to the event programme, breaking all eight targets with the very last attempt of the contest to win a £40 prize.
