Piperdam, Angus

My Golf Break Venue of the Day

Today's vacation destination is near the east coast of Scotland, close to Dundee and the Firth of Tay. It is on the 'doorstep' of the Highlands and within easy travelling distance of St Andrews.

It has on-site golf, fishing, leisure facilities, restaurant, bars and a conference suite for up to 300 delegates.

Accommodation is in five different types of luxury 4* self-catering lodges, ranging in size to accommodate from 2 to 10 persons. Some of the lodges come with their own outdoor saunas and hot tubs.

'The Osprey' 18 hole par 72 parkland course is named after the ospreys that nest and fish in the loch which the course surrounds.

The leisure spa is housed in the largest log constructed building in Scotland and provides a technogym, sauna, swimming pool and therapy room.

Fly fishing for brown and rainbow trout is available on the 40 acre loch and bankside. There is also a children's fishing pool.

The Osprey Centre provides a wealth of information about these magnificent birds, as well as the opportunity to view a nesting pair between March and September.

The Five Lays Rollover Daily Dabble
15 November 2006
Jost Van Dyke went out to 3.30 so I didn't lay the bet, which was a shame because the horse was unplaced.

Instead I layed Mr Aitch at 2.50 only to watch it drop to 2.24 and Royal Attraction lengthen to 6.80. This is outside the recommended spread - but, as the bet was on, there was nothing to be done other than cross fingers. In betting circles, finger-crossing is not high on the list of recommended strategies but it worked - Mr Aitch came second and another easy £5 goes into the pot
