The Bay sweeps ever onwards to visit the sea of blue, and the golfer and his companion's join in the waiting queue. As this looks a busy Golf Links with its expanse and obstacles on show, from my lofty peaked observations I hope they put on a good show. I'm no Golfer but I can imagine the frustration with each Tee, as the ball seems to drift a bit in bending to the other lea. To all who view this Landscape as a Golfer or the likes of Me, take heart that Life's for Living and only God Accepts That Fee.

I enjoy your poetry Matt. Burns could not have put it better. I remember as kids my cousins, my uncle Jock Mackeddie's daughters, used to play hide & seek amoung the dunes or the bent as it was called. Nowadays you would be chased by a hundred dedicated golfers! Changed days but the magical beauty of The Point never changes in my eyes. The peace of the place slightly shattered by Dolphin spotters, still good for local business & all that jazz. But prefer to remember it in quieter days. A native

On Sundays, which in them days was respected as the Lord's day, I'd pay a visit to my grandfather Mackeddie's house on Union St.Fortrose, along with my two aunts Jean & Ann Mackeddie & usually accompanied by their cousin Isa Mackeddie. We'd set out walking down to the golf course, we'd sit in the then wooden shelters & basically watch the world passing by - traffic on the Nairn road across the water, good eyesight I'd say ! Once we saw Billy Smart's circus making it's way to the Bught Park Inverness. Sadly today you'd be chased for your life by all these seriously minded golfers or maybe run down by the Dolphin spotters - the times have changed even at peaceful Chanonry Point.
