  1. Golf

The North East of Scotland is home to over 70 golf courses and we are truly spoilt for choice. Located in the town of Peterhead is the 18th oldest 18 hole golf course in the world. Established in 1841, Peterhead Golf Course was extended to 18 holes in 1908 and today, the course is seen as a classic example of Scottish seaside golf at its best and one of the toughest. Nearby in Cruden Bay is the championship course, an old-fashioned links golf course offering an internationally famous golfing experience. Last year, Cruden Bay Golf Course was placed at No 52 in the world by ‘Golf Magazine’. Both courses are also loved for their magnificant beauty and panoramic views.

Other golfing gems dotted along the North East include Newburgh-on-Ythan, Fraserburgh, Alford, Royal Tarlair, Turriff, Huntly and Cullen all of which are a mixture of links and inland courses.

At the Buchan Braes Hotel, we have packages to suit all golfing enthusiasts. Our package includes overnight accommodation with full Scottish breakfast, one round of golf at a North East golf course and dinner in our Grill Room per night of stay.
