Swilcan Bridge Old Course St.Andrews

Scotland: The Home of Golf


  • Golf in Ayrshire
  • Castle Course St.Andrews
  • Carnoustie
  • Pitlochry Golf Club
  • Castle Stuart
  • Nairn Golf Club
  • Turnberry
  • Royal Troon
  • Lundin Golf Club

Scotland is the home of golf for lots of reasons. There is the huge choice of courses, and everyone is united in their enthusiasm for the game – in Scotland it’s a very democratic pastime. Organising to play a round is straightforward (and often remarkably cheap). Finally, you’ll find the Scots themselves play throughout the year. Very few days are totally unplayable, thanks to a climate without extremes. So golf in Scotland is friendly, great value, easy to take part in and widely available, and we have more courses per head of population than anywhere else in the world. See you at the first tee...

This package features a few of 'the majors', and a few of the 'hidden gems', but in the main is aimed at the person who likes a leisurely round of golf coupled with exploring a country and enjoying and experiencing every part of it!

Day 1
Head over the Forth Bridge for Fife and the hallowed links of St.Andrews, the game’s spiritual home. Overnight in the town.

Day 2
Time for another serious course: the challenges of Carnoustie. Overnight St Andrews.

Day 3
An early start, heading west for Gleneagles, the 2014 Ryder Cup venue,  on the edge of the hills. Then it’s north for Perth and overnight Aberdeen.

Day 4
Explore the valley of the Dee, with courses such as Aboyne or Ballater set amid the pine and birchwoods. Take care with your tee shots at Ballater – the river is a hazard! Overnight Aberdeen.

Day 5
Just time to fit in a round at Royal Aberdeen before taking the A96, north-west for Elgin, gateway to Speyside. Gordon and MacPhail is a famous whisky shop in the town.

Day 6
Off down the valley for a round at the superb Boat of Garten, with the Cairngorms as a backdrop, then it’s a leisurely drive back to Elgin.

Day 7
Head west a short way for the joys of Nairn, a golfing resort on the inner Moray Firth, with a course that has been a Walker Cup venue and is associated with the famous Old Tom Morris as well as James Braid. Return to Elgin for overnight.

Day 8
Join the A9 via a southward route to Grantown-on-Spey for a journey over the Pass of Drumochter for Perth then Stirling. Just time for a round at one of the Stirling courses before overnight Stirling.

Day 9
Fit in a visit to Stirling Castle or the Wallace Monument – super views – before heading west via Callander and Crianlarich for Oban and overnight. Enjoy a waterfront stroll in the evening in Oban – there’s a good choice of restaurants nearby.

Day 10
From Oban a short ferry journey takes you to the island of Mull, where you can sample the gentle undulations of the Craignure course. A visit to Torosay or Duart Castles could also be an option. Overnight Tobermory.

Day 11
Tobermory Golf Club is simply one of the most beautifully situated in all of Scotland and overlooks the Sound of Mull. (It’s also a nine-hole test that has never been played to par.) But don’t spend too long admiring the view – there’s a ferry to catch back to Oban and overnight.

Day 12
Your destination is the classic links of Ayrshire – so it’s east and south to Inveraray, then stay with Loch Fyne a little longer to follow the road through the Argyll Forest Park down to Dunoon. Take the ferry to Gourock, continuing south along the Clyde coast down to Ayrshire. Overnight Ayr.

Day 13
They say the inward half of Royal Troon is the most challenging of any championship course – but there are a host of other demanding and rewarding courses to choose from within easy reach of Ayr. Overnight Ayr.
