The area has a wealth of great golf courses from which to choose.

This area is dominated by the capital, Edinburgh, a town rich in history and legend with excellent accommodation, restaurants and shops. Visits to Arthur's Seat or Edinburgh Castle provide breathtaking views of Edinburgh, the River Forth and further afield the Kingdom of Fife.
