The Wild Wilderness

Machrihanish, Machrihanish Dunes, Royal Dornoch, Machrie, Brora, Askernish, Shiskine, Traigh, Glencruitten, & Durness, with Castle Stuart (optional)

Bandon Dunes, Cabot Links, Cape Kidnappers and Barnbougle Dunes are four stunning examples of the subtle shift to ever more remote locations. The Western Isles of Scotland are our Shangri-La. They’re isolated, with wild Atlantic facing landscapes of rugged, bleak, and inspiring beauty. Cruising the Western Isles is the ultimate ‘chill out’ experience for the golfer who wants to travel off the beaten track in a quest for solace and sanctuary. It’s a spiritual calling to those who treasure not ticking off bucket lists, but the ethereal game itself found in these remote and largely untouched communities on the periphery of the game’s spiritual homeland. But don't think this is second rate golf, we've still managed to weave the three most remote courses from the world's top-100 into your odyssey

Faraway Fairways

Global golf doesn’t get much better than this. Why? Well put simply, because it can’t! It’s not just the fact that Scotland's golf links are iconic, world class, and soaked in history. They’re also accessible and all in a land about the size of South Carolina. On top of the apex golf offer, introducing you to Scotland beyond her fairways is an important piece to the Faraway Fairways approach. Think of it as 'Golf plus Scotland'.
