Golf holidays in Dornoch, Inverness & The Highlands.

Golf holidays in Dornoch

For most golfers a round at Royal Dornoch is either a distant dream or a burning desire.  This remote corner of Scotland is more accessible these days with more flights into Inverness, yet it still remains a place of golfing pilgrimage for most.  The other golf courses up along the coast are worthy of note too: Tain, Golspie, Brora etc. but the big draw remains Royal Dornoch's Championship Links and rightly so - on a clear day it is a wonderful place to play golf.

The town of Dornoch is surprisingly small, with just a few places to stay (mainly B&Bs) and a few places to dine.  If you need more life and entertainment, consider a golf holiday based in the small city of Inverness just down the road, which has it all.

Whisky lovers will find plenty to amuse their palate too with some well known names at work in the Dornoch area such as Glenmorangie, Dalmore and Glen Ord plus a few lesser known tipples like Balblair, Clynelish and way up north Old Pulteney; the latter to be combined with a day out at nearby John o' Groats.

Golf holidays in Inverness

Inverness makes a great base for golf holidays as it is surrounded on all sides by golf courses, both links and inland layouts.  Although small (so easy to get out to the golf courses each day) it has plenty of places to stay, to eat, to shop and to drink.  Plus of course an airport and railway links - always very handy for travelling!

Around Inverness there is plenty to see and do, the most famous attraction is of course the huge beastie that lives in Loch Ness - we haven't seen it ourselves so please send in your photos when you spot it...

Highland golf holidays

Heading south from Inverness, you pretty quickly arrive in the Cairngorms National Park, home to same of Scotland's highest mountains and ski resorts.  The scenery here is stunning, green rolling hills with a snowy backdrop and the silence deafening all you will hear once of the tarmac is the call of the wild.

Enveloped in all this glory are some beautiful little highland golf courses, Boat of Garten is the supreme example but there are others too to be found hiding in the misty hills.

Aside from the golf there is plenty of wildlife to be spotted (eagles of the feathered variety for instance) and drawing pure mountain water from the Spey are the famous distilleries of the region: Cragganmore, Grantown, Cardhu to name but a few.

And the best way to get around must surely be the Strathspey Steam Railway a puff of history as it chugs its way through the beautiful Highland scenery.

Getting to Dornoch & Inverness

Getting to your golf holiday in Dornoch is easiest for most via the direct flights into Inverness from many parts of the UK and Europe.  From Inverness it will take about an hour to drive up to Dornoch, so you could land, collect your hire-car and be on the first Tee at Royal Dornoch after lunch.

We can arrange flights for you if you wish or are equally happy to let you book these yourselves if you prefer?

We can arrange a hire-car for the duration of your holiday, or we have a very reliable coach and minibus company that we use if you prefer to be chauffeured form golf course to golf course around Inverness and Dornoch?

If you are considering driving to your golf holiday in the Highlands, then that is even easier still!  As you might imagine, Inverness is well connected to by road through Scotland and thence to the rest of the UK.
