Cabot Highlands Castle Stuart

Among the very best modern courses in the UK.

Golf Monthly


Built in 2009 and acquired by Cabot Highlands in 2022, Castle Stuart Golf Links has established itself as an accessible option on the Moray Firth. That was precisely the brief for designers Mark Parsinen and Gil Hanse: a course with wide fairways that is playable for average golfers, but rewarding for the pros. A second Tom Doak course is currently being developed.
