Step up to the plate and see if you can master a very different kind of Highland Fling! Axe Throwing is a popular new sport that requires technique and accuracy – Great Away Days in Edinburgh are offering you and your team the opportunity to give it a whirl.
There are different ways to throw an axe, whether you favour an overhand chuck or an underarm sling. Once you’ve got the hang of things, you’ll compete against your teammates to see who can get the highest score.
A fully qualified instructor will take you through the movements before the competition begins in earnest.
The targets are made from wooden tree trunks, sort of like really sturdy dartboards, so you’ll want to give it some wellie.
But remember, proper aim and technique is more important than brute strength, lending this activity a great level playing field for teams of mixed abilities.
