From space too...
Recently Alvin Drew, shuttle/space-station astronaut, gave a talk at our flying club. He, too, said that he had to come to Scotland to see what the ground looked like. He showed us pictures of Europe taken from the space-station with Scotland enveloped in cloud ;-)
There's more fun than golf here. If you zoom out the Google Satellite image (link above) to 1 mile altitude you will see a piece of scrub land just across the water to the south of the golf course. This is the Tain Range - an RAF fast jet bombing range, heavily used during the week, so golfers are constantly put off their shots by Tornados and the like screaming overhead...
Don't know what this has to do with RV12s - sorry moderators.
