Northern Scotland

Few places could offer more stunning settings for classic links golf than the courses of the North Highlands of Scotland.

The north of Scotland is blessed with many excellent golf courses. They offer a challenge to golfers of all levels as well as simply beautiful surroundings.

Dornoch has long been a draw for visiting golfers, but the new Castle Stuart course adds another excellent reason to visit this area. Castle Stuart has been the venue for the Scottish Open in both 2011 and 2012.

Nairn, Dornoch and Inverness are all excellent bases for a golf trip. While the Championship course at Royal Dornoch is probably one of the best known golf courses in this area, there are enough courses to fill a full golf tour itinerary that will keep any keen golfer satisfied.

Try the links at Tain or the inland Boat of Garten, often described as one of Scotland's most picturesque golf courses. The relatively new Spey Valley course adds a Championship standard inland course to the choices available.

To the North East, around Aberdeen, options include the challenging Royal Aberdeen and the very enjoyable Cruden Bay.
