Loch Ness Golf Club
Fairways offers both a 18 and 9 hole golf course. The highlight of the walk around this gently-undulating 18 hole course comes at the 8th tee with the spectacular views of Inverness, The Moray Firth, Ben Wyvis, The Black Isle, Kessock Bridge, and Fort George. For ladies, beginners, juniors, and those in search of an “emergency nine” Fairways Inverness offers a stand-alone nine hole course.

Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club
Course architect James Braid’s remarkable achievement in designing 18 challenging holes within the narrow Chanonry peninsula is instantly obvious. What Fortrose and Rosemarkie may lack in yardage is more than offset by its small, deceptive greens and strategically-placed bunkers. Breathtaking scenery and a dolphin colony in the adjacent firth are additional attractions.
