Golf Course/
Fort Augustus

One of Scotland’s hidden gems, Fort Augustus was laid out in 1924 by Harry Shapland Colt on the banks of the Caledonian Canal near Loch Ness.

Although some changes have been made over the years the layout of the course remains basically as Harry Colt designed it. It is a nine hole course with18 tees set at different distances and aspects, offers long and short, easy and difficult holes, set between Caledonian Pines, lining the banks of the Caledonian Canal on one side, and the Birch and heather covered Lochunagan Hill on the other. Scenically the course is one of the finest in the country

It's a traditional heathland course and is widely regarded as the most challenging nine-hole courses in Scotland. There are dual tee positions giving the course a true 18-hole feel. The dense gorse and heather that line the long narrow fairways demand accurate driving.

Putting too is a real challenge with the sloping, heavily undulated greens that vary in speed depending on the weather conditions. The scenery never loses its breathtaking appeal. Those who have played here in the past or are visiting for the first time will enjoy a round at Fort Augustus as much as anywhere else.
