Took 5 kids (aged 10) for 2hrs of paintball for my son's upcoming 11th birthday. They all had a great time (though one brought shiny shoes because I forgot to tell them to wear old clothes, oops.) Staff very helpful, emphasis on safety at the introduction. Will go back. Just make sure you wear old clothes!

My wife had organised a birthday paint balling session for myself and the lads. We have played paintball a few times now in various sites, and it got to be said for overall satisfaction Skirmish Edinburgh has got to be up there with the best! Good Package Prices! We were booked on the lieutenants package, £35 each for 400 Paintballs,... More

When I phoned to do so, I was treated with possibly the worst customer service I have ever received!!! I have been trying to... More

Had a great day on saturday, staff were friendly and attentive, and made sure everyone was clear on all safety rules and how to use equipment properly. As we were mixed into teams containing younger children the marshals were vigilant about ensuring player safety and making sure they were involved in games and enjoying themselves which I thought was highly...

The site is old and outdated. This along with poor equipment. Not as advertised. Overalls didn't fit buttons missing making gaps for clothes to be exposed. Body armour? Masks that misted up because the proper insulation between was missing. Masks that didn't tighten proper and when questioned. ( That's the best I can do) They offer a professional service at...

I booked Skirmish Edinburgh for my son's 15th birthday bash with some pals. To be clear, I didn't take part so I can't write from direct experience, but the lads - and birthday boy in particular - have been raving about it ever since.

I'm not new to paint balling and have visited a few venues. I found the pricing of paint very competitive. The site has some great buildings and bases! I had a good laugh with the owner and marshalls who I thought ran a great day. Thanks guys.
