Quirky and you've got to be fit!

One of three 18 hole courses on Arran which, despite many visits to the island, we'd never played. The course is carved out of the hillside and is a challenging walk, with holes 1 and 16 being about a 1:4 slope! The greens are miniscule and very hard to stop the ball on, so bump and run is often the name of the game. Because of the extreme slopes you need to pick your lines with care. Lots of bracken can mean lots of lost balls if you lack accuracy. However, the views are stunning and are compensation for playing the mountain goat. At £25 this is pretty good value and the staff are welcoming but don't expect a drink if your round finishes after 4 pm. Definitely a course worth visiting for the experience and views.

Golf With Scenery to Die For

4 of us took to this golf course for the first time. One experienced golfer and 3 beginners. All of us enjoyed it in our own way. Course was not busy and we only had to let two games play through. No bunkers is a plus for beginners but make sure you have plenty of golf balls in your bag. Lots of bushes and burns and blind holes. The views are spectacular and worth the climb. Would certainly recommend and can't wait to play it again.

Great condition, brilliant views

Loved my round at whiting bay. The staff and locals were most welcoming and the course was presented in fabulous condition. The views countered the hilly start and I was glad I played
