The focus of any College Links Golf tour is, of course, golf – but it would be a pity to come all the way to Scotland and miss out on experiencing some of the great things the country has to offer.

We love our country and enjoy sharing the best of Scotland with our guests.

We offer a range of excursions and events which give our guests a chance to enjoy the best of Scotland without impacting on golf commitments.

Scotland is renowned for its natural wonders – Rough Guide readers recently voted it ‘the most beautiful country in the world’ – and some of our most spectacular scenery is remarkably easy to reach. The world-famous banks of Loch Lomond are less than one hour’s drive from Glasgow, while the haunting splendour of the Highlands is also accessible from most of our bases.

The country’s two main cities, Edinburgh and Glasgow, are markedly different but equally enthralling.

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital, is famous for its spectacular architecture and rich history. The city is split into two main areas, the Old Tow and the New Town, which have both been awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO to reflect their global significance.  Our popular Edinburgh city tours take guests to the heart of both neighbourhoods, in addition to a visit to Edinburgh’s iconic Castle.

Glasgow, Edinburgh’s larger, louder neighbour, has a personality all of its own. The city’s neoclassical centre is fascinating to explore. It boasts some the best shopping in the UK and a thriving café culture. Glasgow is a sport lover’s dream. Two major soccer teams, Celtic and Rangers, play to passionate, packed stadiums each week and the city’s rugby team, Glasgow Warriors, is one of Europe’s best. We can arrange tickets to all matches at all three venues.

We pride ourselves on the added touches which help make special memories. What better way to relax after a great day’s golf with a barbecue on the beach, or a twilight boat trip to watch dolphins play in the Dornoch Firth?

Each tour party is different. Talk to us about your requirements and we will ensure your tour is unforgettable – both on and off the course.
