Pitlochry is a lovely Highland town about
90 minutes north of Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Not only is it home to Edradour distillery, the
smallest distillery in Scotland but it also has a lovely heathland
golf course - Pitlochry Golf Course which was
designed originally by Willie Fernie and modernised by Major
Hutchison. The views from the top of the hill are enough to leave
you quite breathless.
Dunkeld & Birnam Golf Course
further south has recently been extended to 18 holes and is
described as a "wee cracker" with great views over the Tay valley
and the Loch of the Lowes. There are a few climbs but you don't
notice them as you are so intent on the game.
These golf courses could also be played as you
travel up north to Inverness along the A9 or if you wished to
extend your golfing holiday in the Perthshire area.
