James W Finegan writes in ‘Blasted Heaths and Blessed Greens’ :-
‘There is no gradual revelation of the glory of Cruden Bay. You climb out of the car, walk over to the clubhouse on the heights, and look down. Below you, in all its turbulent splendour. lies one of the most awe-inspiring stretches of linksland in Scotland, indeed, in all of the British Isles’. ‘This is heroic ground, and if it is thrilling to contemplate, it is markedly more thrilling to play’.
