Northern Scotland-Day 1: Moray Golf Club

Moray Golf Club LogoOur eight day tour of the north of Scotland began in the seaside town of Lossiemouth at a little known Old Tom Morris creation called the Moray Golf Club.  This is a simple links in wending among low dunes covered in gorse and heather.  A nice walk over firm and rumpled seaside turf with serious encroachment from an RAF Air Force base looking over your shoulder.  It has been a long hot summer and brown is definitely the new green.
