Here is another terrific little links that is frequently overlooked by golfing tourists. It is just out of the town of Nairn near the historical site of the battle of Culloden.
It is well maintained and has greens that are nearly the equal of those at Nairn.
All it lacks is some sea views. A number of the holes require accurate drives and the rough and gorse can be very punishing if you are off line. The layout is essentially 9 holes out and 9 holes back.
The par 3, 8th is well bunkered and is a good test as is the par 5, 9th. The par 4 10th is Index 2 and has trouble along the left, especially near the green with a wet ditch close by.
The 11th is a much improved short hole since it was altered after I first played here back in 1998. The 13th is another good par 5. Whilst the 18th is the shortest of the par 5's it requires three accurate strikes and has a semi blind approach to a sunken green partly obscured by a mound.

As with its neighbour, Nairn, there is an excellent clubhouse and nice ambience here. Well worth visiting and very reasonable green fees.
