The Scottish Highlands Golf Packages
The Scottish Highlands Highlights
The Scottish Highlands might well get our vote for the most atmospheric Scotland golf vacation and a Hidden Links Scottish Highlands Golf Vacation package is centered around the “Haunted Burgh” of Dornoch which is simply straight from the imagination about what golf in the Scottish Highlands can be like! Royal Dornoch Golf Club is the highlight of a Scottish Highlands Golf Vacation package and is thought by many to be the finest course in all of Scotland. The Scottish Highlands are more than just Dornoch though and close to Dornoch are some of Scotland’s most historic courses such as James Braid’s links at Brora and Old Tom Morris’ layout at Tain, both of which should be included in any Scottish Highlands golf tour package. The gateway to the Scottish Highlands is Inverness and besides having what is likely Scotland’s best airport to arrive into, and maybe the easiest airport anywhere in the world, the Inverness region is also home to spectacular courses that should be included in your Scottish Highlands golf vacation package. Chief among these is Castle Stuart, many-time Scottish Open venue and not far from Castle Stuart is the original “hidden gem” of the Scottish Highlands, former Walker Cup venue Nairn Golf Club. The Scottish Highlands also offer one of Scotland’s most unusual hazards—the aircraft noise from fighter jets taking off at Moray Golf Club. A Scottish Highlands Golf Package is one of the greatest experience one could ever hope for with even more classic “locals” courses like Golspie, Boat of Garten, and Fortrose and Rosemarkie which all enhance any Scottish Highlands golf tour.
