Turnberry, south of Maidens, South Ayrshire
One of the most famous golfing hotels in the world.
This is the view from behind the hotel looking down and westwards onto the main entrance, round the back of the more common aspect. Across the main road you can see the Dormy House, the starter's hut and on the right the driving range.
The large Saltire is a new and very popular feature.
From lower down and further back this view shows along as far as the Turnberry Lighthouse towards the north end of the golf courses.
On the horizon are the Isle of Arran on the right and the Mull of Kintyre in the centre-left.
Below are some older photos taken looking onshore under different lighting conditions.
Only from height, as in these photos, can the entire hotel be seen unobstructed.
These older photos were all taken from around 470 feet above the beach.
Moving a little to the south, looking north-west.
Looking south-east. This view is looking straight down the 18th fairway.
A panorama showing from Maidens in the north all the way to Turnberry village to the south.
Always remember that images taken by 197 aerial photography are available for clients
in a very much higher quality than the small sized compressed images which are shown
as .jpg files on this website.
