OVERVIEW

The capital of Scotland is an inspiring blend of history, royalty, culture – both traditional and cosmopolitan, and architecture. The crowning highlight is the sensational Edinburgh Castle perched atop a volcanic rock seducing the city centre. Another is the Fringe Festival which along with several other celebrations through the year ensures a constant tourist influx.

Beyond the charm of Edinburgh and a few miles out, is the stunning scenery and coastline of the Lothians waiting to be explored for excellent countryside day trips.

Golfing in Scotland is as much about a tryst with tradition and history of the game as it is about playing some of the best tracks in the world. There couldn’t be a greater emphasis on this than in the East Lothians. Musselburgh Old Links is the oldest golf club in the world (although St. Andrews is the town where the game was born), whereas Muirfield, the 2013 Open Championship venue, apart from being amongst the most revered golf courses in the world is also where the first written rules of golf originated. Aside from these firsts, there is an incredible assortment of championship golf to get started in the vicinity of Edinburgh on arrival in Scotland.
