Designed by James Braid, Buchanan Castle Golf Club is a beautiful 18 hole parkland course lying on the plain of the River Endrick less than one mile from Loch Lomond and it is a delight, in spite of the fact that in Scottish golfing terms it is almost a new-comer, dating from 1936.
One intriguing aspect of play over the course is that many fairways have been framed by two tall trees, one either side, at around 200 yards, or where the Braid Dog-legs start to turn. These are simple but insidious. For example, the very first hole has these framing trees just where the fairway turns to the right.
The Clubhouse was built on the site of the ancient Buchanan House, home of the Buchanan family that had held lands on Loch Lomondside since the 13th century, The Graham Family, The Dukes of Montrose, bought the estate in the 17th century later rebuilt much of it and have held it since that time. The clubhouse exhibits much of the Montrose history.
