Aviemore & Cairngorms - Golf Courses - Scottish Highlands

This valley of the River Spey has some of the best heathland golf in Britain. Golfers who have discovered the area came back time and time again.

At the west end of the valley, between the Monadhliath and Cairngorm mountains are the attractive villages of Newtonmore and Kingussie. Both have challenging courses and are good places to play.

The Aviemore Spey Valley course beside the River Spey is one of Scotland's newest championship golf venues. With the Cairngorms as a backdrop it is perhaps the most scenic course in Scotland.

A little further east is the renowned Boat of Garten Golf Club, perhaps the course that best captures the essence of Highland golf. Here, from the 2nd tee and indeed most parts of the course, the views of the Cairngorms are breathtaking. Grantown-on-Spey is another excellent test while nearby Carrbridge and Nethy Bridge offer nine hole layouts that are by no means a walkover. This is an area you can settle in for a few days golf and the standards are very high. See the listing for Golf Courses in Aviemore and the Cairngorms
