Scotland enjoys a legal “right to roam”, meaning you can explore the countryside far and wide for recreational purposes (responsibly and using non-motorised transport that is). It is certainly worth invoking that right in the Highlands where the call of the wild is so loud it is hard to ignore.
The soaring mountains, mysterious lochs, dense woodlands, miles of sandy beach, lonely castles and stunning vistas will take your breath away.
The traditional Highland food is almost as tempting as the golf at our 31 special Highland courses. Enjoy fresh seafood, super strong cheese, rich black pudding, buttery shortbread – and there’s that smooth malt Scotch whisky to sample too.
Discover quaint fishing harbours, have a go at kayaking, catch the Northern Lights or enjoy stargazing in the Dark Skies, watch dolphins play, take the plunge for some wild swimming – there’s never a dull moment when you hit the Highlands.
While you’re enjoying your golfing pilgrimage across The Highlands you can make the most of the unique, diverse attractions of each region:
All these Highland regions sport exhilarating golf courses – so come for the golf and enjoy the rest as a bonus.
Make golf part of the ultimate Highland adventure. Starting and ending in the Highland capital city of Inverness the North Coast 500 route takes you in a loop covering 500 miles around the north coast of Scotland.
Cycle or drive (you can even walk if you wish) and don’t be afraid to stray off the beaten path to find the hidden gems of The Highlands like the mysterious Pictish Sculptures of the Black Isle, and the flourishing Victorian Attadale Gardens.
The Highlands may seem remote, but that doesn’t mean there’s a shortage of comfortable and affordable accommodation for visitors. You’ll find B&Bs, guest houses, cottages, caravan and camping parks aplenty, and many fairly new businesses offering unusual luxury accommodation like pods, lodges and Highland Bothies.
The Highlands is indeed full of surprises, not least of which is a collection of intriguing golf courses – and Golf Highland is happy to help you uncover them all.
