Golfing in The Scottish Highlands

The Highlands and Islands allow you to experience some of the most remote and scenically beautiful courses to be found anywhere. Here, you can enjoy the pleasures of a secluded round of golf amid a quite breathtaking panorama. Golf in the Highlands of Scotland is an experience to be savoured and over 150,000 golfers come north every year with their clubs in tow to do just that. With a warm, welcome that is traditional from the Highland locals, golfers will relish every moment of their stay. Indeed, the locals are more than a little knowledgeable when it comes to golf and visitors can expect pre-round tips from the locals to help them on their way.

The Highlands is blessed with 46 wonderful testing courses. Some of the world's greatest links courses reside in the north of Scotland. The names of the courses themselves (Royal Dornoch, Brora, Nairn and Tain to name a few) should be enough to make you pack your clubs and set off. The world famous Carnegie Club at Skibo Castle is also a favourite of many visitors, with the castle the setting for the high-profile wedding of Madonna and Guy Ritchie.

Many of the courses have been created by some of golf's most celebrated course architects, notably James Braid and Old Tom Morris. Certainly, a number of their courses have received makeovers or been lengthened due to the demands of the modern golfer, but the best of their work still exists today.
