TRAIL 2 - Around the Hotels continued
After Ogstons Hotel walk across the samll side road, Murray Place, and onto Rascals, above the cinema.
Now, backtrack to Murray Place and walk right down to the end where The Russell Hotel is on the corner. Leaving here turn left and walk in the direction of the beach and golf course. This will take you by The Golf Hotel, currently being renovated, and Scores Hotel. At the foot of the hill on the corner underneath an impressive building is Hams Hame.
From here walk across to the golf course and down the side of it, on Links Crescent is Rusacks Hotel with The One Under Bar under it. (walk around it for entrance). On a good day (and the time) you could walk along Links Crescent and turn righ onto Station Road and walk to The Old Course Hotel which has The Jigger Inn beside it.
Otherwise, from The One Under, return to the road and turn right. Across the road, near the corner is 1 Golf Place and right next door to this is The Dunvegan Hotel where Trail 2 started. You should now be able to find your way back to the bus station.
