This experience is based on the Northeast of Scotland where you will have the opportunity to play some of these golfing gems.
You will be welcomed into Scotland by a member of our Lang Atholl Experience team who will assist you to The Marcliffe Hotel, your accommodation for the next few evenings.
You will begin your experience by travelling to Dunnottar Castle. Set on a rugged clifftop, you will find one of the most awe-inspiring castles in Scotland. Due to its clear defensive position, this castle is credited with allowing Scotland to remain a nation. The castle held off a six month siege from Oliver Cromwell who was attempting to breach its walls and destroy the Scottish Crown Jewels. During the six months, the jewels were smuggled from within the castle to safety and can still be seen today within Edinburgh Castle
You will enjoy a relaxing morning before setting out to play golf at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club .
The Royal Aberdeen Golf Club, located in Aberdeen, was established in 1780 as the Society of Golfers and later changed its name to the Aberdeen Golf Club in 1815. Until 1888, players played on the Queen’s Links near the city before heading over the Don River to the Balgownie Links.
Established in 1909 and cited by The Scottish Golf Union as “one of the most celebrated courses in Scotland,” Murcar Links is located on a classic stretch of links land with immense sand dunes, undulating fairways and is covered in gorse and heather with spectacular views across the North Sea.
On the fourth day, you will play at Cruden Bay Golf Club. The Course offers an internationally famous golfing experience, one of the best links courses in Scotland, and in 2015 was placed at No 52 in the world by “Golf Magazine”
You will venture east to the Aberdeenshire Coastline and the town of Cruden Bay where you will find New Slains Castle which was frequently visited by Bram Stocker between 1893 and 1910. New Slains Castle is believed to be the inspiration for Bram Stocker’s novel, Dracula.
On your final day, you will visit a more modern golf course opened in 2012 owned by Donald Trump. Trump International Golf Links is the latest American inspired, high profile course to open in Scotland since the start of the new millennium.
You will then travel to your preferred departure point. Sadly, this is where we must say our goodbyes.
