This was a gorgeous but challenging course high above Edinburgh. Watch out for people walking their dogs through the course who are also enjoying the beautiful views.

Superb round of golf on a challenging course with splendid views of Edinburgh. Some really challenging holes and course was in good condition. Need to play again as some holes are 'blind'. Very impressed
