A former asylum in the middle of Edinburgh's old town, this hotel is all atmospheric exposed brick walls, candlelight and Victorian steel girders and the effect is unique and appealing.

Arguably the toughest links course in Britain. The Open Championship has been held here on 7 occasions, most recently in 2007. The present golf course was fashioned in 1850 by Alan Robertson of St Andrews. Gorse, broom, open ditches, pot bunkers on almost every fairway and tricky, speedy greens ruin cards and handicaps. The Barry Burn is an additional hazard over the final three holes. In the wind it is a monster off the back tees. The complementary Burnside and Buddon courses that weave arou...

The Old Course at Edzell is set in 120 acres of ideal terrain. In 2001, an additional nine holes were laid out and the new course is called the West Water. Edzell is an inland course of real beauty and one of the best holes is 'Majuba', a short par three which needs a well played short iron to reach the green, which has a deceptive slope. It's three-putt territory above the hole. There's a flavour of Gleneagles, but the fairways are more tree-lined and there are a few blind shots. For valu...
