In Scotland there were 2 Castle Wemyss: in West of Scotland and in East of Scotland.

The above Fife county is in East of Scotland, where there is a Castle Wemyss
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wemyss_Castle

The Castle Wemyss in West of Scotland (demolished in 1984) was in Wemyss Bay, Inverclyde.

Therefore:
August 6-10, West of Scotland Championships, Castle Wemyss, Wemyss Bay, Scotland (Grass)
