Self catering holidays with golf in Scotland


Golf in Scotland

There probably isn't another country anywhere in the world with as many golf courses per head of population as Scotland, and in such beautiful settings. Gleneagles in Auchterarder, Perthshire, is a world famous Championship course, but there are so many others, each with their own individual challenges and character.

If the idea of swinging a golf club enthralls you, then a blissful holiday could be yours. Imagine a round or two, followed by refreshments at the 19th hole, a good dinner and a comfortable bed. Golf_Bed.jpg (11584 bytes)
