PerryGolf’s Founding Director, Colin Dalgleish, has recently returned from the 2013 British Open Golf Voyage. Below are some of his thoughts July 17 upon embarking on the quest, as well as some of his afterthoughts on July 25. The golf cruise was to no surprise, another success for both PerryGolf and clients. Between the five rounds of golf, attending the final round of The Open Championship at Muirfield, cocktail parties and much more fun in the sun, the slideshow below only sheds a mere glimpse into what a luxury golf cruise it really was. But I bet it’s enough to make you wonder about the 2014 British Open Escorted Tour…Enjoy!
“As the The Open Championship is shortly about to begin at Muirfield Scotland, the PerryGolf British Open voyage around Ireland and Scotland is now well underway. PerryGolf guests onboard the delightful 700 guest Azamara Quest have already enjoyed a pre-cruise stay at the The Westin Dublin Hotel followed by golf at 2006 Ryder Cup venue the The K Club outside Dublin, the classic links of world top ten Royal County Down Golf Club, and the excellent Carrick overlooking the beautiful Loch Lomond in Scotland. Combined with a great range of sightseeing activities for the non golfing spouses amongst the group, and some outstanding dining, entertainment, and all inclusive drinks onboard, the 100+ PerryGolf guests are having a great time!”
“PerryGolf’s highly successful 2013 British Open Golf voyage onboard the 700 guest Azamara Quest concluded earlier this week. Since our previous post from the Carrick Loch Lomond, the ship sailed through the western isles and around the north of Scotland before PerryGolf guests had exclusive use of Castle Stuart Golf Links only a few days following the Scottish Open Championship. She then continued to Scotland’s beautiful capital city of Edinburgh where her central berth afforded guests panoramic views of the city during the two day stay. After golf at Kingsbarns and attendance at the final days play at The Open Championship (a mere 35 minute transfer from the ship), guests then enjoyed a relaxing day at sea on Monday in perfect weather, the final few miles into the city of Hamburg being accompanied by water cannon spraying tugboat.”

Congratulations to Cameron House who recently won “Hotel of the Year 2010” at the Catey Awards. This is a prestigious award competed for by hotels across the UK and as the hotel is located just a few miles from the Scottish PerryGolf office, it is our most local supplier. Following a £50 million refurbishment in 2009, Cameron House operates as a 128 bedroom resort boasting 115 lodges, The Carrick, their award winning spa and the PGA championship golf course…not to mention a fine dining restaurant headed by Michelin starred chef Martin Wishart. Well done.

If you happen to be staying in the Loch Lomond area or are playing at the Carrick Golf Course, might I suggest you stop by the Cameron House Hotel for lunch or dinner. With 4 different dining areas to decide from, you’re bound to find an experience to suit your mood or occasion.
Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond opened in 2008 and is the hotel’s fine dining restaurant which offers a classic, chic setting in which to enjoy the fine food on offer. TheBoathouse is a New England style restaurant placed in a picturesque position by the water’s edge while The Cameron Grill is a more informal dining experience set in a contemporary atmosphere and showcases an open feature kitchen and walk-in wine cellar. Finally, The Claret Jug; this is the golf club house, but do not be put off by this, it is a stylish and relaxed eating area which presents local, timeless fare. So now all you have to do is decide which restaurant to go for –whichever you choose, you will not be disappointed!
