No trip to Scotland is complete with a couple of games of golf and a tour of some of the most famous whiskey distilleries. Scotland is the birthplace of the sport known as golf, and it has some of the finest golf courses in the world. After a day of golfing, sitting down with a nice glass of scotch is the way to end it. Here are the golf courses and scotch distilleries you have to visit.
Brora Golf Club
This golf club is one of the oldest, having been built in 1891. James Braid designed the course himself and this is exactly how the game is meant to be played. Each hole has a view of the ocean.
Castle Stuart Golf Links
This is a championship course that opened its doors in 2009. Based in Inverness, it gives competitive players the chance to try out one of the top courses in the world. The green is quite uneven which can make playing more difficult.
Glenmorangie Whiskey Distillery & Lagavulin Distillery
After playing a few rounds of golf, it is time to sit back and enjoy one of the many fine whiskey distilleries in the country. Glenmorangie can be visited in Tain, and some of their single malts sampled. If you want to be a bit more adventurous head over to the Isle of Islay and try all of Lagavulin’s top whiskeys. We suggest the one that has been aged for 16 years.
