Further north, and further away from the crowds that can sometimes inhabit the Scottish courses further south. Well worth the trip further into the Highlands
Royal Dornoch An excellent links course which many people think would be an Open Championship course if were nearer to population centres.
Nairn Fairly flat traditional scottish championship links course with first class greens and a well deserved excellent reputation.
Tain An exciting course making good use of the natural terrain and always in excellent condition.
Moray Superb test of golf with sand dunes, pot bunkers and gorse. Many long difficult par fours.
Elgin A pleasant inland course with a fine reputation.
Skibo Castle A long tough links course. Lovely scenery and usually time to enjoy it.
