Best Western Woodlands Hotel.

A delightful retreat near Dundee.

The Best Western Woodlands Hotel is nestled near Dundee, in a well-established residential area close to the seaside town of Broughty Ferry. The country house style hotel is only a 15 minute drive from Dundee itself, railway station and Dundee Airport, which makes life even easier when you're here on a relaxing short break or a long weekend!

Set in mature gardens, our delightful hotel (once a prominent manor house!) makes an ideal location for either business or pleasure. The onsite leisure facilities provide the perfect place to relax too, with a lovely pool, steam room and Jacuzzi. If you're feeling energetic there's a fully equipped gym to burn off that excess energy!

The hotel is also a renowned favourite meeting place, with a welcoming restaurant serving an extensive menu full of local specialities. Guests can relax and enjoy a coffee or a drink in the comfortable lounge or on the patio area too!

Panmure Golf Club

Six Centuries of Golf
Golf has been played on the Links at St Andrews since around 1400 AD and the Old Course is renowned throughout the world as the Home of Golf. The game grew in popularity and by the 19th century it was part of the way of life for many local people, whether as players, caddies, ball makers or club makers. Golf still plays a major part in the culture and economy of St Andrews today. As the 600 year history of the Links has unfolded, one simple track hacked through the bushes and heather has developed into six public golf courses, attracting hundreds of thousands of golfing pilgrims from around the globe. St Andrews Links is the largest golfing complex in Europe and all 18 hole courses can be booked in advance. The Castle Course, the seventh course at the Home of Golf, is situated on clifftops overlooking St Andrews to the east of the town.
