A ticket to the Barry Buddon Shooting Centre allows access to all competition sessions and medal ceremonies taking place that day within the venue. There is a mix of unreserved seating and standing (first come first served) within the 25metre, 10/50metre and Shotgun Range. The Full Bore range is standing space only.

The spectator gates open to the venue one hour before the first competition session starts each day. Spectators are advised that they should allow time to enter the venue as security checks for all spectators will take place upon entry.

It is recommended that Spectators coming to the Barry Buddon Shooting Centre plan their journey early as there are significant walking distances to the venue from transport hubs and between ranges. We also advise that you dress appropriately and come prepared as many of the events are outdoors and exposed to the great Scottish summer! 

It is not possible to leave Barry Buddon Shooting Centre then re-enter – make sure you bring everything you need for your day out.

Smoking, including electronic cigarettes, is not permitted within any Games venue. This includes any open air space within the venue perimeter. Smoking is discouraged immediately outside venues.
