Having enjoyed the stunning clubhouse you will not be disappointed when you get to the first tee. The first has a generous fairway and the trouble lies in the greenside bunkers. The second is reminiscent of Blairgowrie as you drive up an avenue of conifers. Thereafter the course opens out with glimpses of the sea and Fidra Island in the Forth. You are back in the trees at the 7th. a slight dogleg and one of the best holes followed by a great short hole. The second 9 are only in the trees at the 10th. & 11th. with the 12th. a really great hole easily in range but with a very difficult raised green, well bunkered. which makes it very hard to hold. The finishing holes are much more links like ending with a long par 5 into the prevailing wind. The test of a course is whether ALL the holes are good with no weak ones and Fidra passes this test with flying colours. According to the web site visitors can play if there are free tee times so the information re play in the heading is out of date.
