Royal Aberdeen. Old, well-established golf club presenting a true test of seaside links golf. Set among wonderful sand dunes by the sea, the wind is often a factor.

Murcar. Right next to Royal Aberdeen, this course is one of Scotland’s Top 20. This is a typical links course with bracing sea breezes.

Cruden Bay. If you can play only one course in the Northeast, this is the one! A fabulous, fun course with stunning colors and beautiful views. Cruden Bay presents a real challenge for the serious golfer whereas the holiday player will appreciate the magnificent views over the bay to Slains Castle.

Lossiemouth. North of Elgin on the north coast, this is another seaside links course. Off the beaten path, but worth playing.

Trump International, pricey, but worth it!
