This guide features two trails, one short and one long.
The short trail is about a mile and a half long while the long trail is around four miles, not including the distance to Barry Mill, which is an extra two miles either way. Both trails are circular, starting at the Carnoustie Golf Hotel, but you can join or leave them at any stage.
Carnoustie has a long and rich golfing heritage. Golf has been played over the links at Carnoustie since the 1500s but the Carnoustie Championship Course came into being in the late 1800s. Carnoustie has had a long and illustrious association with The Open Championship since 1931 and has hosted eight Opens.
