Loch Lomond Golf Club
Arguably the best inland golf course in Scotland alongside Gleneagles King's.
Loch Lomond Golf Club has hosted European Tour events, the Solheim Cup, and the Scottish Open from 1996 to 2010.
The 18th green is considered a modern-day masterpiece by Ran Morrisett.
Rossdhu Mansion, the clubhouse, boasts an imposing Georgian facade and is only outdone by the ruins of Rossdhu Castle behind the 18th green.
It was the first golf course built by an American in Scotland.
