Ailsa Craig. Down the ages it has stood in magnificent, rugged isolation - a one-mile long volcanic plug island rising out of the Firth of Clyde, ten miles off Ayrshire on Scotland's west coast.

It also stands as an iconic backdrop to the Open Championship and other major golf events when they are staged at the famous Turnberry links course.
