Sightseeing for Golfers & Non-Golfers

Scotland is not only the home of golf. It has  a colourful and varied history, incredibly beautiful scenery, unique traditions and industries, high quality shopping, museums & art galleries, food experiences and of course the innumerable pubs and hostelries that delight international visitors. The Old Course Experience team will assist in making plans to take in some of the very best non-golf activities.

Edinburgh Shopping Trips

No trip away can be complete without buying gifts for the family back home, or treating yourself to something very special that will remind you of your time with us in Scotland. A trip to the capital city to shop in every type of store to the tiny specialist to luxury designer can be fitted in to a day in Edinburgh. Our car and driver will drop you in George Street, The Royal Mile or The Grassmarket. The day can be enhanced with the addition of a Blue Badge Guide to talk you through the history of the Old Town.

Edinburgh City Tours

The Castle is the iconic image of Edinburgh known throughout the world but there is much more to the city than that. Hidden subterranean streets, royal palaces, murder plots and body snatchers. If you visit in August there is the Edinburgh Military Tattoo which we can source tickets for. There is the New Town which was all laid out during The Enlightenment when the great minds of Georgian Scotland civilised the world. Great pubs and restaurants will nourish the body whilst the art galleries, museums and architecture nourish the soul.

Distillery Tours

The whisky industry in this small country of ours contributes one fifth of the wealth. Scotch is one of the unique products that brings a smile of recognition from travellers around the globe. We offer half day tours of a variety of distilleries, depending on your location. Glenturret (The Famous Grouse Experience) is the closest to us and a fine example of the whisky making process. We can customise the tour to suit the basic knowledge all the way up to a Connoisseurs Nosing & Blending tour.

Castles & Palaces

Scotland - a magical place of myths and mysteries, the romantic setting for many novels and stories stretching back into the mists of time, and a location that encourages the imagination. Castle ruins litter the landscape here in Scotland and each one carries its own history. Highest on the list of “must see’s” are Edinburgh Castle& Stirling Castle, both built on volcanic rocks giving views across the low lying surrounding land. Glamis Castle, the turreted home of the late Queen Mother and Scone Palace, the ancient crowning place of Scottish Kings.
