Blue sky, late October day and played a fast round with no hold ups. Friendly reception when I arrived. Some great, testing par 3s. A few of the greens were aerated but that's totally understandable at this time of the year - course in a good condition given the amount of rain we've had in Oct.

The course had a great lay out and was well worth the £13. I will play this course again.

For the price, a great game. Good views, not many other players and a fine Brasserie for lunch afterwards. A real find and so close to the city.

Very hilly course with some severe side slopes. Not too long and a few great par 3 holes. I enjoyed it but could be seen as a bit gimmicky. I shot 91-good for me so I like it.

The course us set on the side of the Pentland Hills with stunning views of Edinburgh. The greens are small often with bunkers around and many fairways slanted. So whilst holes not long you have to work for your pars by being accurate.

Played late March after 2 weeks of persistent rain. The course was in amazing condition for the time of year.
