          Its the most desolate place in the world. Been in use since the early 1900's as far as I know. The cook there says the army was looking for a place where it rained all the time, no drinkable water, sheep everywhere and no escape possible on foot, thats when they stumbled on Kilbride.

              Lads there's nothing bad or good about Kilpeddar. It's a large field (it is you know) which happens to be a rifle range. What do you want, a 300 metre indoor range? Gets less rain etc... than Kilbride. It's just a tad overgrown (at least it was last year).

                  yea its a bit open at the back of the butts hehe alright especially as you go back to the 300x. Is the grenade range there still open?. If doing tac moves /3 day excercises Kilpedder is worth looking at as one of the o/n locations.
