The Boat of Garten is a wonderful golf course. Designed by golfing royalty James Braid, the course has been dubbed “The Gleneagles of the North” and voted Scotland’s number 1 hidden gem by Bunkered magazine. If you plan to visit Speyside, then you simply must play the Boat! The course is set alongside the wonderful river Spey and has the Cairngorm Mountains for its backdrop. As challenging as it is beautiful, this course is a true gem and our favourite course in the highlands. The Boat of Garten is the perfect location for combining with the distilleries of the highlands and southern Speyside, we guarantee this will be one of the unexpected highlights of every tour.
