Fortrose & Rosemarkie

Course Info

Highlands, Scotland
All Courses

Located on a thin strip of land on the Chanonry Peninsula on the Black Isle and not far from Inverness, Fortrose & Rosemarkie is one of the world’s oldest golf clubs. The course represents a pleasingly varied set of challenges, with greens both large and small, and fairways both wide and narrow. The current layout owes much to the input of the legendary designer James Braid.

On just about every hole, you’ll see dramatic views of the Moray Firth, and although it’s a relatively short course there are plenty of dangers along the way, including dense gorse, deep bunkers and long grass. It’s worth noting as well that some holes feature somewhat blind approaches, so you’ll need to be thinking strategically throughout the round. Another important factor is the strength of the wind, which can be strong and can change direction in a moment. Even the shortest holes can play considerably longer on a blowy day.

It’s easy to include Fortrose & Rosemarkie on a golf tour’s itinerary, thanks to its location close to other venues such as Nairn and Tain. And as you might expect from a trip to such an iconic part of Scotland, there’s plenty to see and do when you’re not on the courses. Trips to Johnston’s of Elgin’s Cashmere Mill and the historic Aldourie Castle are both well worth experiencing, for example.

The knowledgeable and experienced team at Platinum Golf can take all the stress away from the organiser, leaving you and your party free to experience a golfing odyssey that you will fall in love with from the very first moment. We’ll also arrange the accommodation that matches your needs and all the luxury transportation you require from the moment you arrive in Scotland.

Platinum Golf Scotland Testimonials

Cannot think of an aspect of our trip that could have been better. The itinerary you created was first rate, and your execution through Alan and James, was flawless. Yours and Stuart’s attention to detail than follow through, were indeed worthy of your “platinum” name. Truly a trip of a lifetime. I would serve as a reference anytime. Thank you so much again.

Best, John. J

I echo everything John said. It was a tremendous, unforgettable trip. Everything was top-notch — accommodations, food, weather, caddies, and all the beautiful courses. I miss my Scottish breakfast! A special tip of my new Scottish tweed hat to all our drivers, especially Alan. He took really good care of us, showed us some interesting local things “off itinerary” and was just a joy to travel with.

Thanks again for all work you did getting me a buggy at each course. It made it all possible for me.

Dear Lynda, Sending a short note of thanks for all of the support organizing the trip last week. I can say with confidence this was the best golf trip I’ve ever taken! The itinerary, schedule, accommodations, restaurants and on and on were all great. Special thanks to both you and Stuart for helping to make my 50 year celebration a memorable one. I hope to be able to book another trip again in the future.
All the best,

Brian D

Dear Stuart and Lynda,

I wanted to thank you for a fabulous trip to Scotland last week. You put together the perfect golf and stay package and everything went flawlessly (including really nice weather). We also enjoyed having James as our driver. He was the best! Erick, Jim, Brian and I all had a great time.

This was the definition of a “bucket list” trip and the experience did not disappoint. The only downside is, after nearly a year of anticipation, it is hard to believe the trip is already over and we are back home.

Thank you again. I would definitely love to use you again for future travel and will be very comfortable recommending you to friends and family.

Thanks Linda,
Great to meet you both as well.
It was a great time
We will be in touch for sure.


Marc and I would like to thank you for the beautiful journey you prepared. Everything was well organized, timing, convenience, réservations, etc. All the people we met were so kind to us that we felt just like home. Golf in Scotland is the best place and this east coast is just gorgeous we leave the country with the ambition and hope to be back.

Michel & Marc

It was so nice to meet you and Stuart in person as well.  Clearly you take great interest in your clients’ satisfaction, and it shows.  As we may have mentioned, we had never been to Scotland or the UK and this trip exceeded all of our expectations.  And as lovers of golf, the experience was utterly unforgettable.  Thank you again for the lovely gifts you shared with us upon arrival.

We loved our trip.  If we booked it again tomorrow (we wish we could!) we wouldn’t change a thing except maybe substitute a different hotel for Loch Green.  Thank you for making our “bucket list” trip so special. 

Russell & Kelly

Thanks again for a fantastic trip !

We look forward to the next one !

We have had a great time in London too although it’s been a bit overwhelming! What a city!


Thank you for this wonderful experience and for helping to make this trip a dream come true for all of us. We can’t wait to come back to Scotland!


Our heartfelt thanks to you and Stuart for the holiday of our dreams and especially for Johannes. It was beyond his expectations (and mine) and we had such a beautiful time together. The true test of Johannes’ love for Scotland was his purchase of an entire kilt outfit with all the bits and bobs, I nearly fainted –I am truly living in Outlander. I almost fell over, we expect our kilts in December or January, and photos will be sent, I promise

I cannot express enough how grateful I am to you both, every detail and every moment was fabulous! We are eating shortbread with proper marmalade and relish our memories.
