Scotland is a land of legend and romance. Its historic castles were once a stage for heroic struggles, its two great cities are among Europe's most dynamic, and its picturesque countryside is filled with rolling highlands, remote lochs, salmon-filled rivers and incomparable golf courses. For the avid golfer, Scotland remains, as ever, the source and the soul of the game of golf.

Its sandy, linksland soils are the basis for this heritage, and produce the fine-bladed fescues which are the cornerstone of fast-and-firm playing surfaces that characterise links golf. Designed by Kyle Phillips and opened anew in 2000, its rebirth has been shared with golfers from near and far with outstanding reviews. The links features spacious rolling fairways, large greens, and exceptional sea views on every hole. A challenging yet enjoyable champion-standard traditional Scottish links course.

DAY 4 CARNOUSTIE

Today play Carnoustie, host to the British Open on six previous occasions and considered by many to be the most challenging of all Open venues. While the links is relatively flat it is exposed to the elements. A combination of length and accuracy are required from the tee and approach shots demand precision to the greens heavily guarded by steep bunkers and burns. Arguably the toughest finishing holes in championship golf, the course hosted the world’s best again in 2007 when the Open returned to this wonderful venue.

Certain restrictions may apply, please advise your Golf Travel Specialist.Non Golfers visit Glamis Castle and Scone Palace.
