This famous golfing center and sports complex is on a moor between Strathearn and Strath Allan. Gleneagles has four 18-hole golf courses: King's Course, the longest; Queen's Course, next in length; Prince's Course, the shortest; and Glendevon -- the newest of the quartet -- which was built in 1980. They're among the best courses in Scotland, and the sports complex ranks among Europe's finest. The center gets its name from the Gaelic Gleann-an-Eaglias, meaning "glen of the church."
