This won­der­ful old links set on a slen­der Black Isle head­land al­most op­po­site Cas­tle Stu­art was an in­ter­est­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in a five­club wind, but with vi­brant gorse ev­ery­where and un­der beau­ti­ful blue skies, it was a vis­ual de­light. I’ve never played any­where with so many tees right by the lap­ping waves, as they are on most of the first eight holes. I was pretty re­lieved to make the front nine ‘turn’ on the 6th – a won­der­ful lit­tle 133-yarder by the light­house – and ac­tu­ally get some wind as­sis­tance for a few holes. I’d long wanted to play here, and it didn’t dis­ap­point. Stats: par 71, 5,893 yards W: fortrosegolf­ GF: £45/£60wd per round/day; £50/£70we
