Sightseeing in Scotland

Activities to enjoy off the course

Perfect for any occasion, Scotland is a small friendly country with a glorious mix of the traditional and modern…

From ancient castles to a dram of whisky next to a wood burning stove; through unspoiled valleys and round pristine lochs; serving up the freshest local seafood to the finest nouvelle cuisine; Scotland has many other wonderful things to offer as well as the game of golf.

If you are interested in venturing further and exploring around Scotland during your trip we are more than happy to cater for this. Also, if there are any non-golfers travelling in your group we can arrange sightseeing excursions each day for them whilst the golfers are out on the course.

Whisky Tours and Scotland Distilleries

Scotland has over 125 distilleries scattered across the mainland and islands, some of them are silent or dismantled but most of them are in full operation. Scotland is split into five whisky-producing regions; Campbeltown, Highland, Islay, Lowland and Speyside. Where a whisky is made can have a huge bearing on its flavour, everything from the source of the water to the presence of peat in the local area will come through in the taste. Speyside is the largest whisky-producing region, which boasts almost two thirds of Scotland’s Distilleries. Speyside lies below the Grampian Mountain range between Inverness and Aberdeen with all the distilleries lying on the River Spey or adjoining rivers.

Scottish Breweries and Craft Beer
