Just under two miles, so maybe 25-30 mins walk.

Problem is that it's on the other side of the A9 so have to walk a bit to get to the road crossing.

Enjoy the golf - a Scot to win, please!

That Johnnie Walker fellah seems to have been handing out a lot of freebie tickets for this Tournament.

In fact, I think suppy has exceeded demand!

we all like a wee bet on the golf and hubby went down with the bets before we headed off - having heard start was delayed - willie hill said it wouldnae allow the bet cos it had started - now normally you can still bet - so we thought - we will just put a bet on when we get up there - no bookies - guess who the son was putting his e/w bet on? yes you've guessed it the current leader Mark Foster :grr:

Oh and Simon Dyson - very nasty man to his caddie on the first green (his tenth) threw club at him - way down in my estimation.

Hope it is nice again tomorrow and saturday loving it.
