A phenomenal quality of dry links golf is to be found in the Scottish Highlands. Royal Dornoch *(RD); Brora (Br); Golspie (Gol); Tain (T); Fortrose & Rosemarkie (FR) and Skibo (Ski) for its environment, all north of Inverness and Askernish (Ask) on South Uisk
Nairn *(N); Nairn Dunbar (ND); Moray (Mo) at Lossiemouth; Cruden Bay *(CB); Murcar *(Mur); Royal Aberdeen *(RA); the new Trump International Links (TIL); all giving fine golf on links land to the south of Inverness and the new Castle Stuart (CSt) near the airport.
The heathland Boat of Garden (BoG) and Hopeman (Hop) along the cliffs and the new Spey Valley (SV) at Aviemore should also be mentioned. The links at Peterhead (Pe) and Fraserburgh (Fr) are still to be played.
