Play the New & Improved Scottish Highlands in 2022
Availability next year to play marquee Scottish golf is limited at best - unless you head north. Nearly three hours north of St Andrews is Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. From here you’ll play famous Royal Dornoch, whose plateau greens are a trademark design feature that Donald Ross took from his home course and used on many of his classic designs in the States. Better still, with credit to Mackenzie & Ebert in 2020, the seventh hole has been pivoted to the right so that the sea is in view for the entire hole, and a new green – a replica of the previous one – has been built; plus new tees for the eighth hole were built on the location of the previous seventh green. Fifteen minutes from Inverness is the exceptional Castle Stuart, a Mark Parsinen – Gil Hanse collaboration voted the best new course in the world in 2009 by Golf Magazine. Nairn, Dunbar, Brora, Moray and Tain are longstanding “hidden gems” enjoyed by northern visitors who will also want to enjoy Royal Aberdeen, Cruden Bay and Murcar Links either on the way up or back.
The heart of single malt whisky production in Scotland is located between Aberdeen and Inverness in Speyside. Iconic brands like Macallan, Glenfiddich and The Glenlivet are found here along with nearly 50 other distilleries. The Dunrobin Castle, which resembles a French chateau, is the largest in the region with189 rooms. It has been inhabited continuously since the 13th century. For golfers and non-golfers alike, there's something to enjoy for everyone.
