Shiskine      Tel :  01770 860 226   

is just over 1 mile from Hill View, and is probably the best known course on Arran. It is a very charming and unique 12 hole links course and is  old fashioned in terms of having lots of blind shots. There are some great holes, including the par 3  3rd called the Crows Nest and the 7th, which is  called the Himalayas.

Lamlash     Tel :  01770 600 196
