A recent article in the Scottish newspaper Press & Journal highlights some of the fine courses in the Scottish Highlands and their proximity to the Malt Whisky Trail in Speyside.  There is no getting away from the fact that Golf & Whisky seem to be a popular partnership on a golf vacation to Scotland.  Perhaps it is our fondness for replaying the round…if only I didn’t miss that 3 footer or take two in the bunker, then I might have won!!  Sipping on a great malt in the clubhouse or back at the hotel after a round on the links, is the perfect way to finish the day.  It is interesting to note that our golf cruise onboard Harmony II, a luxury mega yacht on charter to PerryGolf in July 2010, visits three venues referenced in the article most notably Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart and Durness, the most northwesterly course on the mainland of the British Isles and probably the most remote.  For further reading click here.
