Scotland is known for many things, Whisky, Golf, Loch Ness, Edinburgh Castle, Scenery and much more.
If you are visiting Scotland for a golf holiday we would strongly recommend you consider enhancing your trip by experiencing some of Scotland’s History, Heritage and generous Hospitality.
There are many area’s of Scotland to visit, all with many things to do and see and all of which can be included in your golf tour depending on which region you are visiting.
The West Coast of Scotland is well known for its spectacular scenery and sometimes rugged coastline but is also home to beautiful white sandy beaches and turquoise blue sea. Never far away, you will find a golf course be it a 9 hole or 18 hole course. Machrie on Islay (18 holes) Tobermory on Mull (9 holes), Traigh (9 holes) near Mallaig and Sconser (9 holes) on Skye are all beautiful courses. You will also find Whisky Distilleries and many other places to visit.
The Highlands has everything to offer and in our opinion is the best all round region in Scotland – golf courses as good as any, Whisky Distilleries, Castles, Loch Ness (home to Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster), Famous Battlefields, beautiful scenery, The Cairngorms, Walking and Cycling – the Highlands has everything.
Royal Dornoch Golf Club sits very close to the spectacular Dunrobin Castle and also close to 3 distinctive Whisky Distilleries, Balblair, Glenmorangie and Dalmore.
If you prefer a bit of city life then Edinburgh is the place to be. Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, Royal Yacht Britannia and Museums, all close to Muirfield Golf Club and the choice of links courses in East Lothian – Gullane, Kilspindie, North Berwick and Dunbar to name but a few.
August is a great time of year to visit Edinburgh as it is during this month the world famous Edinburgh Festival takes place including the annual spectacular Edinburgh Military Tattoo staged on the ramparts of Edinburgh Castle – a very International event.
One or our favourites is tucked away at the foot of the Kintyre Peninsula on the South West Coast – a place called Machrihanish where you will find two special Links courses very close to Campbletown, once famed as being the Whisky Capital of the World with about 27 distilleries but now home to Springbank and Glen Scotia. You can access Machrihanish by Sea and Air but going by road will take you through some breathtaking scenery.
No matter where you visit you can also be assured of some of Scotland’s best food produce by visiting a wide choice of fine restaurants.
