Highly enjoyable round of golf. Some interesting and deceptive holes on first nine. Second nine is relatively new though the greens seem much quicker.

A great small course, amazing scenery. A course full of hills, some quite steep. I thoroughly enjoyed my round. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. I will be back. I only started playing last year and this presented quite a challenge.

Wonderful setting the views are breathtaking. Interesting and challenging course set in highland Perthshire. Well worth playing the course is in two parts with a more recent back nine added in 2000. Not many downsides but the greens had suffered from the dry spring and many have not recovered from tining and dressing.

The car parking is limited and access to the clubhouse is via a steep path/drive. The 16th 17th and 18th are very steep climbs and if like me you are on the wrong side of sixty you may want to have a buggy. Recommended

I played this course for free with a voucher code sent to me via an email from American golf, the views of the scenery from almost every hole is breath taking, the course it self is well maintained to a very high standard as is the clubhouse where I met the staff who gave me a warm welcome. I travelled the hour long journey back along the A9 the following day to play it again fell in love with the place and have now taken out a country membership,every golfer should try this course it will blow you away!

Good variety of holes with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. Good test for the average golfer and not too severe if you don't manage to find the fairway. Greens are excellent and well manicured. I will certainly be back again and would recommend it to anyone , by booking through Golf Now.
