Currently planning a golf trip to Scotland for two weeks in June, 2011. We plan on starting in the Inverness area, playing Dornoch, Tain and Fortrose and Rosemarkie. Then we plan on going to Aberdeen to play Kingslinks, Hazelhead #1, Balnagask. From there we plan to hit Stonehaven, Abroarth to Carnoustie and then St. Andrews ( at St.A we plan on doing the Old Course and buy a 3 day ticket for unlimited golf at the other courses).
Our problem is that we have a day or two for transit between Inverness and Aberdeen. Does anyone have any recommendations for courses in Aberdeenshire to share? In particular Forres, Buckpool, Strathlene, Duff House Royal, Garmouth and Kingston, Royal Tarlair, Cullen, Fraserburgh or Inverallochy? Any whisky distilleries in the Spey Valley, we must visit? Thanks in advance for your consideration.
