Golf as it Once Was

An experience best described as golf as it once was, Cabot Highlands harkens back to a simpler era of the game.

Hugging the shoreline of the Moray Firth, the rugged and natural landscape is comprised of vast expanses of gorse, broom, heather, and sea marram. Tightly framed vistas combine the immediacy of natural surrounds with far-stretching views, creating at once a sense of grounding and grandeur. Manicured playing surfaces and natural rugged vegetation come together in a design reminiscent of golf’s transitional period from 1890 to 1935.

Currently home to the Castle Stuart Golf Links, Cabot Highlands will soon expand its golf offerings with the addition of a second 18-hole course, Old Petty, scheduled to open in 2025.
