Fantastic course and well worth a visit, warm welcome in the clubhouse and a quiet course which made for a very relaxing round of golf on a Saturday morning. Slight problem with the Scottish weather but always to be expected.

this is a really nice links course to play, not the same league as its big brother, but it's challenging without being too difficult

Classic traditional links course, which merits it's high ranking as one of the best in the UK. Great layout and variation of holes, which test every aspect of your game - especially in the wind! Course setting is impressive, and staff gave us a friendly welcome.
