Tillicoultry in East Scotland has a rich history of linen manufacturing, due to the plentiful supply of water for power and for the industrial process itself. Many people in the area were employed in the manufacture of cloth. These days it is largely a commuter town, and the mills have been converted into flats and houses. There is one activity that still attracts people to this area, and to the whole of Scotland, and that is golf.
In fact, thousands of people travel to Scotland to use the golf courses every year. Golf is largely safe and is not regarded as a hazardous sport, but there are occasionally reports of people suffering nasty eye accidents while they are on the golf course.
