Keith accomodated us and the equiptment, games and location exceeded my expectations. If you like paintballing but don't like the hidden costs and pain then this is a great alternative. Would highly reccomend and also its great value for money

We took our 11 year-old and his friends to experience this, and it exceeded our expectations. Our group of seven joined a larger group of circa fifteen and it increased their enjoyment with the bigger teams as the woodland area is quite large for the...More

Just finish 1.5h with friends from work. Great atmosphere and teamwork. Definitely wear dirty clothes as you can get dirty, especially after rain. Different games will make you sweat if like to run and hide.

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
