The 1st and 10th have significantly different tee-lines, both with a lovely view toward the island of Raasay. When playing as the 1st the drive is from about 70 yards left of the clubhouse.

Keeping your drive reasonably straight is key: too far left and you will tangle with the stone wall running alongside the latter part of the hole; too far right and you will find deep rough or even OOB. Longer hitters will be able to drive down the slope short of the green or perhaps even reach the green. Shorter hitters will be left with an approach from the upper part of the fairway. The green slopes towards the sea so stopping the ball quickly can prove difficult. Beware of running through as this can leave your ball up against the supporting wall of the 6th/11th tee. (There is a Drop Zone if your ball is unplayable.)
