Legendary golf architect James Braid created plenty of stunning courses in his time, but there can’t have been many that enjoyed such a beautiful location as Boat of Garten. It’s situated in the picturesque Scottish Highlands alongside the River Spey, in the Cairngorms National Park. As you make your way from the 1st the 18th, you’ll be aware that every hole is not only a test, it’s also a photo opportunity.
While it’s not an overly long course, Boat of Garten represents a true test of your golfing abilities, especially when it comes to shot placement. Try not to be intimidated by the tight, tree-lined fairways or the heather waiting to trap your ball, and try even harder not to be distracted by the steam trains and the views of the mountains.
Known to many as The Boat, it’s the perfect addition to any golf tour, especially if you’re looking to play at least one round inland. One of the unusual quirks on a course that’s pleasingly full of quirks is that it opens with a par-3 hole, called John’s View. It may look straightforward but it really isn’t, especially if you have those first-shot nerves on the tee. Keep well away from the out of bounds down the right and beware the bunkers on the left.

We’re on our way to Edinburgh. Thanks for the kind note, I absolutely loved every minute of it, even when I was in the rough and losing balls! The program you put together was everything we could have expected and your customer service was perfect; thank you for going above and beyond…
Stuart and Platinum Golf Scotland provided a terrific itinerary for a spectacular golf and whisky (and, of course, food) experience in Scotland! The checking in, touching base, and above the call of duty service provided during our trip was great! No doubt that they would be a go to for any future travel to the UK. Thanks a bunch for making it an experience of a lifetime!
