Nestled in the heart of rural Perthshire, Pitlochry is not just a gateway to the Highlands but a haven for golf enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Its Scottish charm and welcoming atmosphere resonate throughout the year, making every visit memorable.

The Golfer’s Paradise: Pitlochry Golf Course

Founded in 1909, the Pitlochry Golf Course is a masterpiece of golfing architecture. This 5,700-yard heathland course, though not lengthy by modern standards, presents a unique blend of challenge and beauty. It tests every aspect of a golfer’s repertoire.

First Tee Wonder: The journey begins at the elevated 1st tee, requiring a strategic blind second shot, setting the tone for a game of skill and foresight.

Notable Holes: Each hole on the course offers its unique challenge. The 9th, a captivating dogleg left with out-of-bounds hazards, demands tactical play. The 16th, a short but tricky hole with its elevated tee, is often regarded as the signature hole, but others like the 1st, 6th, and 18th are equally memorable.

Scenic Splendor: As you progress through the course, the stunning views of the Scottish Highlands unfold, making every step a visual delight. The panoramic vistas from various points are breathtaking and elevate the golfing experience.

Facilities and Training: The course boasts a covered range, academy, and practice areas, making it an ideal spot for beginners and seasoned players to refine their skills.

Dining: A Gastronomic Journey

Pitlochry’s dining scene is as diverse as its landscapes. Cidsin Bistro and Gin Bar offers a modern twist on Indian cuisine, while The Old Mill Inn and Fern Cottage Restaurant provide traditional Scottish and Mediterranean flavours. Victoria’s Restaurant is a family-friendly spot with a menu sourced from Scotland’s larder.

Accommodations: Comfort and Charm

From the historic Atholl Palace Hotel to cozy guesthouses, Pitlochry caters to all preferences. Each accommodation enriches your stay with comfort, excellent service, and a touch of Scottish hospitality.

Beyond Golf: Activities and Culture

Explore Blair Athol Distillery, take in the serene beauty of Loch Dunmore, or seek adventure in kayaking and mountain biking. The town’s cultural heartbeat is evident in its traditional Highland Nights and the diverse performances at the Pitlochry Festival Theatre.

Picture Perfection 

Pitlochry is a mosaic of experiences. Its golf course, with its challenging layout and scenic beauty, is a jewel in Scotland’s golfing crown. Combined with its culinary delights, cozy accommodations, and a range of activities, Pitlochry is more than a destination – it’s an unforgettable experience, a slice of Scottish heaven.

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.
