The Isle of Skye Golf Club is a serious contender for the title of the most picturesque golf club in the world. Nestled between the magnificent Cuillin Mountains and the Isle of Raasay, the immaculately manicured course runs along the shores of the Sound of Raasay where an abundance of wildlife, including whales, golden and sea eagle can often be spotted. The club is located beside the main A87 arterial road between Broadford and Portree and visitors can be assured of a warm welcome.
We are a small club situated in one of the most beautiful spots in the Highlands, just 30minutes drive from the Skye Bridge, on the shores of Loch Carron. The golf course is a short but a demanding one which is suited to all levels of golfers and provides both a good test of golf and a spectacular walk. Being partly along the lochside a player really knows when the wind blows and due to the nature of the course golfers can find themselves playing into the wind, downwind and a crosswind all in the space of three holes.
