The Independent Golfer's Guide to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland


"Taking control of our own trip was the best decision my buddies and I ever made. With The Independent Golfer's Guide it was a breeze."George Messerlian, M.D.

"I had no idea that Scotland had so many fine courses. Our two weeks in the eastern Highlands, playing courses like Brora, Tain, Nairn, Golspie and, of course, Royal Dornoch, was an experience I'll never forget. It doesn't get any better than that."Walt Trower, Airline Pilot

"My three friends and I saved over $2,000 each over our 2-week golf trip in Scotland by not taking a packaged tour and planning it all ourselves. Being an 'independent golfer' is the only way to go." Fred Fajen, Physicist
