Lowe takes us along the rugged eastern coast, from St. Andrews up to Montrose and Cruden Bay and Royal Aberdeen, "from heather, whin and sand, to points north," to Nairn and Dornoch. Then to the west coast, to Prestwick and Troon. It's not only the courses themselves that Lowe illuminates along the way, but the winding roads, the ancient villages, the farms and whiskey distilleries, and the people who call this land their home as well. Each step of his pilgrimage is given its due.
Interwoven through the photography are historical notes and observations by David Joy. Maps and architectural drawings are also included.
Scottish Golf Links: A Photographer's Journey captures the exhilarating feeling of Scotland, from the rugged coasts and lovely villages to the classic links brimming over with elegance and complexity, to the Scottish whiskey that has sustained golfers for more than 400 years. Turn its pages for the trip of a lifetime.
