  • Golf is recorded as having been played at Carnoustie in the early 16th century. Carnoustie first played host to The Open Championship in 1931. In 1890, the 14th Earl of Dalhousie, who owned the land, sold the links to the local authority. It had no funds to acquire the property, and public fundraising was undertaken and donated to the council. The original course was of ten holes, crossing and recrossing the Barry Burn; it was designed by Allan Robertson, assisted by Old Tom Morris, and opened in 1842. After extension to 18 holes in 1867, two additional courses have since been added: the Burnside Course and the shorter though equally testing Buddon Links.

  • On 3rd May 1845, seventeen gentlemen attended a meeting and agreed to form the Panmure Golf Club. It is interesting to note that the Constitution agreed to at the first meeting differs little from the one that pertains today.

    The course has been modified and lengthened over the years, several of the holes according to suggestions proposed by James Braid in 1922. The last major change was to re-site the 14th green (from what is now used as a winter tee for the 15th), producing a far more interesting and challenging hole.

  • The two Monifieth courses offer golf for all levels with the larger course, The Medal, elected by the Royal and Ancient GC of St. Andrews as a final qualifying course for the 2007 Open Championship.

  • The RRS Discovery was the last traditional wooden three-masted ship to be built in Britain. Designed for Antarctic research, her first mission was carrying Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton on their first, successful journey to the Antarctic.  The Discovery is now the centerpiece of Discovery Point in Dundee.  The ship sits in a dedicated dock by the waterfront and has an adjacent museum where you can learn about it’s historic research and voyages.

  • This exhibition at Brechin Castle Centre tells the story of the Picts in Angus. Timeline of the Picts, the battle of Dunnichen and images of symbol stones.

  • The home of golf and the old course. In addition to golfing attractions, St Andrews also boasts a long sandy beach, numerous shops and restaurants and the third-oldest University in the english-speaking world.
