The Scottish Highlands conjure up images of breathtaking scenery and the stunning landscape is used to great effect when it comes to the Highland region's golf courses.
Some courses are revered throughout the world as legends and other new courses are fast rising to be regarded as world-class.
Royal Dornoch in Sutherland is one such legendary links course with a dedicated following. It has been praised by Tom Watson and countless others and is one of the most perfect golf experiences you could have in Scotland. Royal Dornoch is ranked the 3rd best course in Scotland and 13th in the world.
Newer still, though also shaped on ancient land, is Castle Stuart on the southern shore of the magical Moray Firth, with views to the Black Isle and Inverness. Castle Stuart opened in 2009 and already there are whispers of 'instant classic', which is not surprising given that it was designed by Mark Parsinen, the American who created the celebrated Kingsbarns Golf Course in St. Andrews.
Then there is Brora, with all the attributes of a Scottish seaside classic links course - a bracing course where you will probably need every club in your bag, but hopefully not every ball!
The challenges of the golf courses in the Highlands of Scotland allow the seasoned professional and the new amateur to enjoy a round of golf in Scotland: 'The Home of Golf' - and what is more Scottish than the stunning Highland region? Make your golf visit a proper 'hole in one' by exploring and enjoying the golf courses of the Highland region using Kincraig Castle Hotel as your base - that way at least you will score a 'hole in one' with your hotel.
Whatever your handicap, there is a course within 20 miles that will suit you.
