Scenic locations and luxurious golf hotels in Scotland

Golf is a sport that really captures the imagination courtesy of international superstars like Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, but it’s also very much a passion for people who get involved with it, not least of all because of the spectacular locations across the UK where some of the world’s most famous golf courses reside.

Scotland is a particularly beautiful and at times challenging place in which to play golf.  The borders, highlands and coastal courses make for varied climates and environments in which to play, whether you’re a beginner or seasoned pro.  Whether you’re looking for a hotel within easy reach of Scotland’s most famous cities – the history and culture in Edinburgh or the fervent character or Glasgow, there’s such a broad reaching selection of hotels available for those interested in golf as well as other country pursuits including fishing and hiking.

Take for example the Balcary Bay Hotel, in an idyllic setting by the water that also provides an extremely romantic setting for visitors enjoying a break with their partner.  Equally, foodies will delight in the home made charms of Caddon View, a friendly guesthouse in the Tweed valley.

There’s also a wealth of history at Scotland’s hotels, with the likes of Ballathie House not only providing excellent locations for sports and a particular interest in salmon fishing, but a real sense of Scotland’s past courtesy of impressive architecture and a joyful collection of carefully considered interiors.  Similarly, Rufflets in St Andrews is a turreted mansion, built for the widow of a Dundee jute baron in the 1920s and retaining much of the romance of that bygone era.
