We visited as 3 couples last Saturday on annual src weekend away. Having used many racecourse dine and views we found this on one of the better. Very modern and lots of helpful staff.

One of the best days out! Great atmosphere. Lots of colour. Big crowds. Fun for all the family. Great mix of the modern and traditional. Would recommend this to all locals and visitors to the region. Best course in Scotland.

This is a good day out when theres racing on. It has buses going straight from the centre to there and back on race days. Food is overpriced but to be expected.

Totally unexpected pleasure from start to finish. Course was delightful people very friendly, food a bit on the steep side sadly on our day the picnic area was closed so we could not take food or drink with us, apart from that the place was faultless

Not as good as Musselburgh, Kelso, Ayr or Hamilton in my opinion but there's not much to fault it on I suppose. It just didn't impress me as much as the other Scottish Racecourses.

Have a day at the races now and then - easy to get to and a fun day out - if the weathers nice - wee bit chilly if not - but then its Scotland!
