Visited here on ladies day and thoroughly enjoyed it. Could have done without the 40 minute transfer in the hottest bus in Scotland but the rest of the day was great. Would consider going back again.More

Went to the new years' day races. There's plenty going on here and the place is clean and tidy. Not a massive racecourse by any means but a nice place. Right handed track, chase and hurdles track. The turns are quite tight.
