Excellent layout with good greens, best course in the area

The surrounding scenery is sensational with the course located under Ben Nevis just outside of Fort William. The clubhouse was closed and being renovated when I played - an honesty box for green fees was in operation. The course is well designed making best use of the landscape of streams and rolling hills. The fairways are a little rough but the greens were good. Pace of play was excellent as I was just about the only person on the course when I played.

Just needs some TLC!

A picturesque and challenging layout off the white tees with many holes bordered by trees. However in desperate need of maintenance. Greens were spongy and poorly mown, fairways were overgrown. Many signs were missing so difficult to find the next tee. 18th green had holes in it from a grass disease? If the course was looked after it would be right up there with the best. Such a shame.
