Great dunes stretch along Aberdeenshire’s 165 miles of coast – some of them said to tower 100 feet high. In this extraordinary sandscape are some of the world’s most challenging links courses, designed by top names in golf architecture such as Old Tom Morris, James Braid and Dr Martin Hawtree. Here, along Scotland’s North-east coast, the skies are vast, the light clear, and the air fresh. The panoramic views and elemental power can take a golfer’s breath away. This is stirring stuff. Historic, too. Aberdeenshire has two of the top 10 oldest courses in the world.
Inland are dozens of parkland courses in majestic settings –in city among forests and glens, on great estates and rugged heaths, in castle grounds and tree-filled parks, alongside fast-flowing rivers.
