Scotland Golf Vacations

By Jim & Barbara Nicol

The land of tartans and bagpipes and history movies, Scotland is also "the home of golf". St. Andrews Old Course had it's official beginning around 1850, but the land was used for "golfe" for more than four hundred years before.

Southern Scotland is rich in rolling farmland, ancient abbeys, castles and historic houses. The central region and West Highlands is home Scotland's two largest cities and Loch Lochmond. From The Kingdom of Fife, home to St. Andrews, to Perthshire, is an area of dramatic contrasts combining rich farming patchwork with the high hills. The Highlands are one of the last wildernesses in Europe - from the soaring beauty of Glencoe to the idyllic charm of the Isles, and from the crashing waves of the northern coastline to the silence of the wind swept moors, this is an area that will leave you with an image of sheer size and beauty for forever. *
