Detailed Description

It is you and the fairway, the ball and the green on this 8-day grand Scotland golf vacation through Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart, Royal Aberdeen and Trump International. The landscape is as celebrated as the game, situated alongside historic buildings and sandy beaches. You can hear the waves crash against rugged slopes and witness the Highlands rise on the horizon. Travel from Aberdeen to Inverness and experience the long stretch of manicured grasslands along the way. Indulge in five-star hotels at the end of a fabulous day taking on championship courses across the country. Once in Scotland you will find success both on and off the green.

Your exploration of Scotland’s northern courses begins in Aberdeen. The city is built from granite and contains a shimmering silver façade across the neighborhood. Take the time to relax in your five-star resort hotel and spa, situated on the coast of the North Sea. The following day you venture to panoramic views of the coastline at the golf club of Cruden Bay. The course is consistently ranked in the Top 100 Golf Courses in the World and maintains a sense of honor amongst the treasured courses of Scotland.

Royal Aberdeen holds the title of the sixth oldest golf course in the world. The sea breeze sweeps across the grassy hillsides and bunkers hid in the shadows of the sloping green. The scenery offers lustered coastline, yellow bushes, and purple heathers. Outside of Aberdeen you come to Trump International Golf Links where sand dunes narrow the fairway and plunging valleys hide the coast. Make your way to Inverness and enjoy a tour of the charming city and its 19th-century castle. Rest in the soothing elegance of your five-star hotel.

Venture out to Royal Dornoch to play a round at the most northerly Championship course in the United Kingdom. The challenging collection of holes will keep you focused. At Castle Stuart you play a round against the backdrop of the Black Isle. The course adds to the prestige of the already legendary golf clubs around Scotland. Your private transfer meets you at your hotel to escort you to the airport as your luxury Scotland tour comes to an end. The greenery of Scotland is unparalleled and the fairways have also been exhilarating.
