Golf on the Scottish Coast

The coast of Aberdeen is a 2 hour drive from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness, making a coastal golf break very much within reach.

The city of Aberdeen in the North East of Scotland offers everything from romantic hideaways, countryside breaks and vibrant city life, and with so many courses located just a short drive away, using Aberdeen as a base for your golf break is a perfect option for passionate golfers and their friends and family.

Top-notch accommodation abounds in the area of Aberdeen City and Shire, from 5 star hotels, to quality B&Bs, self-catering accommodation and camping and caravanning locations throughout. Visit Scotland has detailed information on accommodation availability in Aberdeen during your Scottish Coast Golf Break.

While anywhere in Scotland is a golfers' paradise, Aberdeen City and Shire offers some of the best golf in the country, and although within the city of Aberdeen there are four 18 hole courses, one 9 hole and one 6 hole course to test, why not get out and see the beautiful coast and countryside that the area has to offer with this 4 day Aberdeen coastal Itinerary.

Day 1

Start your Scottish Coast Golf break at the warm and friendly old fishing port town of Fraserburgh, just 40 miles from Aberdeen. In the morning, check out the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, and even grab lunch in the cafe by the sea which looks out onto the Moray Firth.

In the afternoon golf the James Braid designed Fraserburgh Golf Club links course, with dunes and wind, will challenge you on your first day out on Aberdeen coast.

Day 2

Cruden Bay lies 25 miles from Aberdeen, allowing for a quick drive out to Cruden Bay Golf Course in the morning for 18 holes, and an afternoon free to enjoy the coastal village. The golf course at Cruden Bay showcases gorgeous greens and panoramic views on links designed by Old Tom Morris of St Andrews.

After a morning on the links and a lovely lunch at the club, head to the north of Cruden Bay to Slains Castle and explore the ruins of this mighty castle that served as inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Day 3

Right near the Bridge of Don lies the Murcar Golf Course, just 2 miles outside of Aberdeen. The course itself is a links course designed by Archie Simpson and opened in 1909, and promises a challenging morning out on links which provide both sea and city views.

After your morning of golf, head over to the neighbouring Royal Aberdeen Golf Course, host of the 2005 British Open and the 2011 Walker Cup. While it is possible to play a round, you may opt to enjoy the delectable dining available in the clubhouse.

Day 4

Start your day by visiting Dunottar Castle on the clifftop fortress, which was used in the making of Mel Gibson's Hamlet in Stonehaven, 15 miles from Aberdeen. After lunch, hit Stonehaven Golf Course, an inland course with clifftop views of the North Sea.
