The Highlands is home to some of Scotland's finest golf courses. Discover championship venues and historic links layouts amid majestic northern scenery.

The Scottish Open was recently held in the Highlands at Castle Stuart Golf Links on the Moray coast. It is a splendid venue and there are so many other fantastic courses in the north. Nearby Nairn has two championship golf courses to be proud of, The Nairn Golf Club is a terrific links course which possesses sensational views across the Moray Firth. Nairn Dunbar opened in 1899 and has a long history of hosting national tournaments such as the 2013 Scottish Alliance Championship.

Staying with the Moray coast, the Old Course at Moray Golf Club in Lossiemouth was designed by ‘Old’ Tom Morris and features perhaps the finest finishing hole in Scotland. A few miles away, the course at Hopeman boasts The Prieshach, one of the most stunning par 3 holes in the country. Venturing further north, Royal Dornoch is a links classic and a favourite of five-time Open champion, Tom Watson.

Brora is another links marvel and is the headquarters of the James Braid Golfing Society. There are some great alternatives to links courses too. Spey Valley is a top inland venue near Aviemore with the Cairngorms Mountains forming a stunning backdrop. The same goes for Boat of Garten golf course which is also in the area. For something a little bit different, play the 9-hole course at Durness on the north coast to experience the shot 'across the Atlantic' on the final hole.
