Paintball Games in Scotland
The ACE Woodland Paintball playing field based in Moray near Aviemore and Inverness in Scotland is the ideal location for playing paintball. ACE use quality Tippmann markers run on air and not CO2 which provides better paintball playing performance.
Cammo coveralls are provided and armour kits are available for paintball players. The woodland paintball field is designed so keep the paintball games flowing. A series of tyres, natural tree cover and shapes in the landscape provide excellent paintball game play.
Paintball is best suited to groups and is an ideal stag party activity as well as staff team building and reward days or corporate days out. Paintball is always popular with the school groups as they can take the tour of duty computer game skills and apply them in the real world playing paintball in a safe marshalled environment.
- Excellent safety record
- Fast-paced short games
- Play for as long as you like
- Quality Tippmann markers (guns)
- Kiosk with refreshments and snacks
- Experienced marshals with a sense of fun and passion

ACE Woodland paintball is deliberately designed to keep paintball games short and fast. There are little or no places for players to bunker down inside an enclosure and slow the games down to a stalemate. A typical player can expect to shoot between 500 and 1000 shots in a session.
The game zone is designed so that any team can utilise communication and collaboration to outflank the opponent. The terrain is in mature well-spaced pine forest with wooden and tire barricades. Enough cover to make an advance, not enough to hang about!
Upon arrival, you will be met by a member of the ACE team who will sign you in at reception and confirm the initial amount of paint you want to start with.
The head marshal will take you along to the game area and issue overalls and a face mask. A safety brief is done before we then hand the markers over for instruction and practice in the shooting gallery.
Then it’s onto the game zone to take part in a number of games. Some examples include;
Free for all: Split into teams with each player being given three lives. If you are shot, lose a life and return to your main base before re-entering the game zone. Once you have lost your lives, you have to return to your base until your team is victorious or defeated. The objective: eliminate the whole other team. This helps everyone get familiar with the terrain and equipment.
Capture the flag: Each team is set a flag – close to their opponents base. The objective: return your flag to your base, simple!
Bombing run: Teams are given the role of defender and attacker. The attacking team is given a “bomb” while the defending team has a “target.” The objective – attacker: place the bomb at the target. The objective – defender: protect the target with your life!
Predator v.s. Prey: Two unequal teams are created (i.e. 3 and 6) with the smaller team being prey and the larger team predators. If a predator is shot, they are out of the game. If prey is shot, they become a predator. The objective: eliminate the other team.
ACE Assassins: Every player’s name is placed in a kitty. Each player then picks a name or “contract” from the kitty which remains secret until the game starts. Each player then has 30 seconds to enter the field of play and set up. When the game starts you have to hunt out and eliminate your contract without being shot by your assassin. The Objective: find and eliminate your target without being shot yourself.
Last Man Standing: Every man for himself: It does what it says on the tin.
And many more…

Paintball was inadvertently invented by the Nelson Paint Company in the 1960’s when they made markers (the paintball guns) called that because their purpose was to use to mark trees by forestry and cattle by ranchers. People started shooting each other for fun and by the early 80’s modern paintball was born.
