Cabot Highlands

Inverness, Scotland

Castle Stuart Golf Links was recently acquired by Cabot Golf, which is renowned for its exceptional golf properties across the globe. Although the course will not be changing, a sister course designed by Tom Doak will open in 2024. With Castle Stuart Links, Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs already in the World’s Top 100 in most prestigious rankings, it’s anticipated that Cabot Highlands Golf Course will join them upon opening – making it an increasingly popular attraction on any Scottish Highlands Golf Tour.

Castle Stuart Links immediately rose to the top of Scotland’s “must plays” upon opening. The course ingeniously weaves six holes along the Moray Firth, just feet above the water line. It also features 12 holes on the clifftop, and has gained recognition for its imaginative bunkers. The neighboring 17th century Castle Stuart, from which the course takes its name, is cleverly woven into the routing as a backdrop to the par 3, 4th hole.

Cabot Highlands & Inverness

In addition to the Castle Stuart Golf Links course, a former Scottish Open venue, Cabot Highlands features a terrifically fun short course, an Art-Deco inspired clubhouse, and luxurious select accommodations. Real estate options are also planned for future development.

Castle Stuart Links was designed by owner/developer, the late Mark Parisinen (of Kingsbarns fame) and one of the hottest golf architects in the world Gil Hanse. Castle Stuart Links gained recognition for its imaginative bunkers incorporating partial revetting into natural dunes.

Located only five miles from the international Inverness Airport, Cabot Highlands makes a wonderful start to an overall Scotland golf tour.

A perfect base from which to explore not only Scotland Highlands golf but the lively town of Inverness, with its gourmet local seafood, world-renowned whisky tasting and important historic sites like the Culloden Battlefield. Best of all, Cabot Highlands is a resort so weekend tee times are available.
