The Kincraig Castle Hotel


The Kincraig Castle Hotel

The Kincraig Castle Hotel enjoys fine views overlooking the Cromarty Firth and is considered by many who have stayed to be a hidden treasure in Ross-shire – a luxury 4 Star Romantic Hotel, with a 2 AA rosetted restaurant, just outside Inverness and close to Tain and Dornoch.

From the moment you arrive you cannot fail to appreciate the Highland setting of this hotel: set in its own mature private grounds the hotel was once the family home of the Mackenzie clan.


Cromarty Firth

An inlet of the Moray Firth in Highland Council Area, the Cromarty Firth separates the mainland of Easter Ross from the Black Isle.

It extends 18 miles (30 km) west and southwest to Dingwall from its mouth between the headlands known as the Sutors of Cromarty. Invergordon was an important naval harbour during both World Wars until it closed in 1956. The broad, sheltered and deep waters between Nigg Bay and Cromarty Bay provide a safe anchorage.

The Scottish Highlands conjure up images of breathtaking scenery and the stunning landscape is used to great effect when it comes to the Highland region’s golf courses. Some courses are revered throughout the world as legends and other new courses are fast rising to be regarded as world-class.

Royal Dornoch in Sutherland, is one such legendary links course with a dedicated following. It has been praised by Tom Watson and countless others and is one of the most perfect golf experiences you could have in Scotland. Royal Dornoch is ranked the 3rd best course in Scotland and 13th in the world.

Newer still, though also shaped on ancient land, is Castle Stuart on the southern shore of the magical Moray Firth with views to the Black Isle and Inverness. Castle Stuart opened in 2009 and already there are whispers of ‘instant classic’, which is not surprising given that it was designed by Mark Parsinen, the American who created the celebrated Kingsbarns golf course in St. Andrews.

Then there is Brora, with all the attributes of a Scottish seaside classic links course – bracing course where you will probably need every club in your bag, but hopefully not every ball.

The challenges of the golf courses in the Highlands of Scotland allow the seasoned professional and the new amateur to enjoy a round of golf in Scotland: ‘The Home of Golf’ – and what is more Scottish than the stunning Highland Region?
