in Market Street and South Street, with Bell Street and Church Street connecting the two principal streets.
In addition to getting to explore the town, enjoy golf at the Fairmont, enjoy a
gourmet dinner at one of Scotland’s famous restaurants and much more. Don’t miss thisa golfers’ dream come true!
