Full Description

By the time of the 2nd edition map (1906), a curling pond, along with two bowling greens and a bandstand, had been laid out in Pavilion Gardens. The curling pond became tennis courts by the mid 20th century - and is shown as such on the map contained in a 1949 prospectus for the sale of the Strathpeffer Estate. Later it reverted to a curling pond, and it is again tennis courts.
