Boat of Garten
The Boat Of Garten Golf Club is set alongside the River Spey in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, only 10 minutes drive from the bustling village of Aviemore.
Braid’s design features 18 completely individual holes, a small clubhouse, tidy and modern locker rooms, every hole is different, but if I was to pick a hole the par 5 13th which is just a long slog with a strange lay-up shot for your second, and the short par 4 15th which requires a 7 iron or so off the tee then an 8 iron to the green, despite being a straight away hole, but that's picking a hole for the sake of finding fault, the rest of the course is fabulous, and picking a favourite is impossible.

This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, and the perfect place from which to explore the Highlands or simply unwind. The massive Abernethy nature reserve can be found here, this is a remaining remnant of the great Forest of Caledon the home to a good number of rare and unique species of bird and mammal, not least the pine marten and Capercaillie. The area is less frequented and offers the traveller a hidden and dramatic view deep into the heart of the Cairngorms.
