Cruden Bay - A stunning links course, it was placed as the 52nd best course in the world by "Golf Magazine" in 2002. Initially laid out by Tom Morris in the 19th century, it was revised by Archie Simpson into the layout it is today and is very much a traditional links with humps, hollows and numerous blind shots. Offering spectacular views of Slains Castle, it is a picturesque and challenging test of golf. 18 holes. Par 70. 6,396 yds. Links.

Carnoustie Golf Breaks. The golf at Carnoustie needs no introduction. Championship Course - Host to the Open six times, the Championship Course has been voted the top course in Scotland by many of the golfing greats and has been described as Scotland's ultimate golfing Challenge. The 1999 Open captured the public's imagination as some of the game's greatest players floundered, and will always be remembered for Jean van de Velde's disastrous last hole where he let slip a three stoke lead to lose to Paul Lawrie in the play-off. 18 holes. Par 72. 6,941 yds. Links.

Royal Dornoch Golf Break. So well is the Championship course regarded, that magazine polls across the world regularly have it in their top 20. Despite being 45 miles north of Inverness it is well worth the trek! Championship Course - The opening hole on the Championship course, a simple par 4, is no indication of the joy – and trouble – to come. It is not until golfers walk over the headlands to the third tee that they get a sense of this striking golf course. Tom Watson came here and said he'd had "the most fun I've ever had on a golf course" and he's played a few! 18 holes. Par 70. 6,514 yds. Links. Golf Dornoch.

Troon Golf Breaks. Old Course - The Royal Troon Old Course has held The Open Championship seven times. It is one of the great links courses in Scotland and with the wind to contend with, and deep rough interspersed with gorse and broom, accurate shot making is essential. Players should make their scores on the outward nine, as the prevailing north-westerly wind can make the back nine extremely difficult. 18 holes. Par 71. 7,119 yds. Links.

Turnberry Golf Breaks. The Ailsa and Arran (now Kintyre) courses at Turnberry were rescued from near extinction and redesigned by golf architect Mackenzie Ross in the 1950's. Since then it has hosted many amateur and professional championships.

Royal Aberdeen Golf Course. The superb Balgownie links course was designed by Simpson/Braid. The course essentially runs out and back along the North Sea Shore, the outward nine through some wonderful dune formations, the inland nine on the plateau. This championship course is very well maintained with many challenging holes to test your entire golf game. 18 holes. Par 70. 6,415 yds. Links.
