Quiet but welcoming, this wee course is a great 4 hours of fun golf. Short and sweet, this wee course will challenge most golfers and certainly those who look after their money. Back drop is spectacular with the river Cluanie running close by.

This course is normally buried under snow for 4 months of the year and has been created on the floor of the glen close to the magnificent Cairngorm Mountains, but is not the highest in Scotland, but one that provides some of the finest mountain...More

I love this place. It must me a challenge to get it ready for business every April with the winter conditions at this altitude, but they do it every year. Greens are good, fairways well kept and the surroundings are just stunning. It isn’t long...More

This was my first game at this course, and I would recommend it to everyone. Considering the amount of rain the day before the course was in good condition. We were made very welcome and look forward to playing the course again. Graham Burns

Played nine holes at the course and the views are phenomenal. Course was very quiet with excellent greens and range of holes. The clubhouse was comfortable and friendly. Again the views were stunning.

We were made very welcome in the clubhouse and enjoyed breakfast before going out. I think this is the highest 18 golf course in the UK. The scenery is spectacular. The course is well maintained and challenging. A burn runs through the course and the...More
