9th hole on the Kyle Golf Course

The Plock or Ploc of Kyle is an irregularly-shaped peninsula, about a square mile in area, overlooking the straits to Kyleakin on Skye. The name is derived from the Gaelic Am Ploc, meaning a lump. In 'Gateway to Skye', Duncan Macpherson describes walking up there before business hours at the pharmacy. The land for the 9 hole course was donated to the community by the landowner Sir Daniel Hamilton and the course opened in 1929. Caisteal Maol can just be seen on the left of the village
