A fantastic hour of fun
Jul. 2019 • Family
My wife, daughter and I booked in to Ardtorna archery as part of our trip to Oban and Mull and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Shaun took us through the basics and very quickly we were off and running before getting into some more technique on aiming. Shaun was good fun and encouraged us throughout as well as sharing knowledge about the history of archery. Would very much recommend it to anyone visiting the area and looking for something fun and a bit different to the norm.

Excellent coach and beautiful setting. A perfect activity for a family to do together. Great value. Our nine year old daughter loved it as much as her parents! The grandparents had a lovely spot to spectate.

Awesome experience!

My husband and I took a private lesson with Sean one afternoon in May, and it was such a blast! He was a great teacher, and very informative (my husband was really curious about bow making, archery competitions etc), and we felt he was able to teach us the technique very well, we were able to increase our distance from the target several times.

Visiting Oban and looking for something different... do this!
Sep. 2013 • Couples
We had a private lesson September weekend this year. Sean done very well explaining everything and showing us how to work the bow.... I was especially impressed on leaning how to firgure out which is my strongest eye! Ha! But with his help I did manage to hit the middle target a couple of times.

My other half enjoyed it so much he has decided to take up archery as a hobby.

I cant recommend this enough and we are planning our second visit.... the location is also amazing!

Had a great family time!
Jul. 2013 • Family
We thoroughly enjoyed our traditional longbow archery lesson today!
As a family we enjoyed having fun together and the tuition was brilliant!!!!
Sean is such a lovely, competent, enthusiastic tutor and even our daughter who is autistic
was able to follow his instructions and succeed to improve her aim.
Sean is very easy going and friendly. We were even allowed to bring our dog who sat
watching the excitement from the side lines (safe distance assured, of course)
We felt incredibly lucky that he had a vacancy from one day to the next. This guy
should be booked up for months in advance!

Consider this a MUST DO!
Jul. 2013 • Couples
We travelled over Ireland and Scotland for 4 weeks and this was one of the highlight activities of our trip (in addition to an hour of falconry). Sean who owns the B&B where they hold the lesson is very enjoyable and easy going and gives a lovely history of archery as it relates to Scottish history. This is not something we really get to do in the US so we found it to be a typically local experience. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it and found that even with no experience at all, anyone can with instruction from Sean manage a fair showing. If you are looking for something unique, instructive and fun, this is IT! However, Sean is getting quite popular so book ahead!!!!

Highlight of Our Scotland Trip
Jul. 2013 • Family
I have been to Scotland a number of times, but on my most recent visit I was looking for something special because my parents were coming with me. I chose to book private lessons for myself and my dad as a belated Father's Day gift, and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, the traditional longbow lessons at Ardtorna was probably the highlight of the entire trip. Unlike my dad, I have no archery experience so I was surprised at how easily Sean was able to instruct both of us together and encourage me as I improved. And Karen and Sean were very nice and fun hosts as well. If you are in the Oban area, you would be making a mistake to give this one a miss.

Fantastic experience
Aug. 2012 • Couples
We booked the Traditional archery not really knowing what to expect but going by previous reviews we thought it seemed to meet universal approval. We were not disappointed- we turned up early and Sean started the lesson immediately. We started with a brief history of the art which was very interesting and was the ideal start to the lesson. With a brief demonstration we got straight to the action which was thoroughly entertaining. After each shot Sean provided some tips and steadily the results improved- unfortunately my wife's quicker than mine!
A great experience and a lovely location- check out the B&B before you book anywhere as it is second to none! Thanks Sean and Karen for a lovely day we will be back!
