Must play!

Been on my bucket list for some time now and it didn't disappoint. The views are amazing and so is the course. Very tight, particularly on the front nine, and fairways are very undulating with drumlins across them. Be prepared for the odd bad bounce or two!! Try not to get too upset, the golf and the views are more than worth it!!

Disapointed

Beautiful setting.nice welcome.however if you like blind shots and uneven lies then this is for you.the 7th is a very poor hole and 6 is unfair with a ridge in front of the hreen means uou have to carry a superhuman second shot onto the green. Not for me.a fun bounce game couree only

Correctly called the hidden gem of the Highlands. A challenging, though not long, course with a number of tricky tee shots. Green fees are rather high (?40+) in my view. Greens excellent.

A good course in excellent condition. Lacking feature holes and a little on the expensive side compared to other courses in the area.
