At over 1400 acres, Section 8 Airsoft’s woodland site at Dura Forest, Allanton ( Between Glasgow and Edinburgh ), is among the biggest in the UK.
With varied terrain ranging from dense woodland to open grassland, the possibilities are endless.
In among the rolling hills and deep dark woods can be found many different game zones, which are usually full of players struggling to gain an advantage over their opponents whilst avoiding opportunistic snipers.
There’s a large stone bridge leading over our deep ravine to “The Alamo” – where many a team have made their last stand.
These, and many more features that make up the rest of the site, make for a gamesite where there’s always something new to find, and somewhere new to fight.
New game areas and ideas are always being explored – We try to introduce a new scenario type every few games, and people new to Airsoft or just to Section 8 can always find a friendly face amongst the marshals and regular players.
The postcode for the school at the bottom of Dura Road ( The road upon which the site entrance is situated ) is ML7 5AB.
This is Dura Primary School, in the middle of Allanton.
Turn up Dura Road, so you have the school on your right ( The old-style red phonebox here is a good waypoint ) and the stream bed on your left.
Follow Dura Road for approximately 2km until the road dips whilst turning left and passing under tree-cover. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A SINGLE TRACK ROAD WITH PASSING PLACES. Please drive with care and consideration for other road users.
Here you will see a ruined church on the right hand side, opposite a red metal gate with attached wooden horse-bridge on the left.
This is the site entrance – Due to problems with local vandals, we do not use any signage here so please watch for the red gate!
