Scotland Local Information and Area Highlights

Travel to Scotland / Scotland Vacation Rentals

The wonder of castles, verdant countryside, outdoor activities, a plethora of golf courses, and distilleries only scratch the surface of defining the character of Scotland. To learn more, plan to take advantage of a Scotland vacation rental.

Scotland Golf

Golf is Scotland’s passion, not surprisingly with the natural lush landscapes and the fact that the game of golf started hundreds of years ago in the Lothian countryside. In Scotland, vacationers are encouraged to learn how to play golf or to improve their game. You won’t just find the longer 18-hole courses; delightful 9-hole courses await your swings. Regional golf passes are obtainable. Visit world-renowned courses like St. Andrews and Gleneagles’ three courses, and don’t forget to stop at the British Golf Museum in St. Andrews, an interactive museum detailing golf’s history from the Middle Ages to today. Imagine how great a Scotland vacation home located right near a golf course would be!
