With the Ryder Cup coming to Gleneagles next year, more and more golfers are realising that golf in Scotland is not just about St Andrews, Turnberry and Muirfield, but that some of the best and the most scenic golfing experiences can be found North of the Highland Line.

The Moray Firth and Dornoch Firth courses have for over 100 years been recognised by the golfing purists like Peter Thomson and Bob Charles amongst others as some of the best in the world and both have endorsed this offer.

Sir Bob Charles:

“Having played Tain and Brora , I cannot wait to visit Nairn Dunbar, Golpsie and Boat of Garden, all of which are high on my list of MUST play courses

Now my days of competitive golf are behind me, I really look forward to annual visits to the Highlands and enjoy that which Scotland has to offer on and off the golf course.

Anyone with golf in their veins must visit this special region, but I hope to get there “before ye on the high road”

Peter Thomson:

“Golf in the Highlands is the highlight of my visits to Scotland, and my wife and I make our bookings long before we depart Australia.

We have been recommending Brora, Golspie, Tain, Nairn Dunbar and Boat of Garten to our friends ever since we discovered them, and they always come back with glowing reports.

Another highlight has been the Highland Hospitality and the comfort of the hotels. We are always impressed with the care we’ve received from the staff, and have been there so often we think of them all as friends.”

The good news is that five of Scotland’s best courses have joined together with three great hotels to offer a golfing experience that can only make every golfer anticipate the new season with a spring in their step.

James Braid's wonderful Brora, Golspie and Boat of Garten courses, along with the delightful Tom Morris-designed Tain course and the excellent Nairn Dunbar are in partnership with the Royal Marine Hotel in Brora and the Morangie House and Mansfield Castle Hotels in Tain to offer superb value golfing holidays through their “Highland Golf Escapes.”
