Boat of Garten Golf Course

When it comes to golf in the Scottish Highlands, Boat of Garten should be first on every visitor’s itinerary.  Designed by one of the grand-masters of golf course architecture, James Braid (1870-1950), “The Boat” is set alongside the River Spey in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, only 10 minutes drive from the bustling village of Aviemore.   The course is not only renowned as a demanding test of sporting skill but also as a magnificent setting for the game. Braid’s design features 18 completely individual holes, cleverly and sensitively shaped fairways lined by birch trees, heather and broom, maximising the natural landscape and producing a beautiful and challenging course.

Distillery Tour

Neighbouring Balmoral Castle, Royal Lochnagar is the perfect place to discover how Scotch Whisky is made. Watch as the team of operators tend to the traditional mashtun, gleaming copper stills and fill casks at the traditional distillery, which retains much of its original charm. The tour ends with a dram of the award-winning Royal Lochnagar 12 Year Old Single Highland Malt.
Royal Lochnagar Distillery, one of the jewels in the Royal Deeside crown, is situated beside her Majesty the Queen’s Scottish Home, Balmoral Castle, in Crathie, half way between the villages of Ballater and Braemar, which is home to the world famous Highland Gathering and Games.
The distillery takes its name from the mountain, Lochnagar, which is a Munro, a mountain over 3000ft high. The Royal name was bestowed upon the distillery following a visit by Queen Victoria on the 12th September 1848. At the end of this, the first ever distillery tour, Queen Victoria enjoyed a dram of mature Lochnagar highland single malt scotch whisky.
