Tayburn House - Golfing
The local 18 hole course at Dunkeld is one of the most picturesque in Perthshire with each hole affording not only a new and interesting challenge for the golfer, but also ever changing views of the glorious surrounding countryside.
Scotland is the home of golf and Taymouth (by Kenmore) is today one of the very best. Playing Taymouth Castle Course is not only an exercise in skills, it is an experience. There are, throughout the country more testing courses, many with much grandeur and beauty of their own, but none can compare with Taymouth Castle where grandeur and beauty can be experienced at every hole.
The beautiful inland courses at Gleneagles are among some of the most exclusive in the world. The Scottish PGA championship has been held here in recent years - and Gleneagles is on the short list to host the Ryder Cup.
St Andrew is the undisputed home of golf. Home to the most famous golf course in the world the "Old Course", and also the headquarters of world golf's ruling body, the R & A, St Andrews has been the venue of many memorable British Open Championships as well as events like the Alfred Dunhill Cup.
Carnoustie is widely acknowledged as one of the sternest tests of links golf in the world. It recently hosted the 1999 British Open Championship won by Paul Lawrie. Who will ever forget the dramatic last hole collapse of Jean Van Der Velde as he disastrously found water in the Barry Burn.
