Day 2
Auchterarder, United Kingdom
Gleneagles, Scotland Breakfast

Golf at Gleneagles

This morning, enjoy an early morning tee time to play a round on the 6,471 yard King’s Course. James Braid's plan for the King's Course was to test even the best players' shot-making skills over the eighteen holes making it both challenging and exhilarating for any golfer. Gleneagles is certainly one of the most beautiful places to play golf in the world, with the springy moorland turf underfoot, the un-spoilt views from the tees, the rock-faced mountains to the north, the green hills to the south, and the peaks of the Trossachs and Ben Vorlich on the western horizon.

Handicap: No handicap certificate required.

This afternoon is yours to enjoy the many activities available on site.  Gleneagles boasts many activities to choose from including the world famous Shooting and Fishing School, the Equestrian School which is one of the most impressive riding centres in Europe, the Gundog School – the first of its kind in the world and also off-road 4x4 driving on two specially developed courses. The Club, with two swimming pools, outdoor hot pool, tennis courts, gymnasium, cycle hire and walking/running tracks.

Day 3
Carnoustie, United Kingdom
Gleneagles, Scotland Breakfast

Golf at Carnoustie

This morning, meet your driver-guide and transfer eastwards for a full day to Carnoustie. Dating as far back as the 1500s, golf has been played over the links at Carnoustie but the present Championship course came into play in 1850, designed by Alan Robertson from St. Andrews and was then extended and improved in 1926 by the famous architect James Braid. Not only does it offer the ultimate challenge to every golfer but it provides a playing quality second to none.

Tee times can be limited on the Championship Course so there is also the option to play the 5303 yards Buddon Links Course.

Handicap: Max 28 for Men, max 36 for ladies

On your return journey to Gleneagles you may take a scenic drive along Strathmore, the area of Scotland that is famed for the growing of soft fruit, notably raspberries. Stop in the picturesque village of Dunkeld that has an idyllic situation overlooking the River Tay.

Day 4
St. Andrews, United Kingdom
Gleneagles, Scotland Breakfast

Embrace the chance to play on either the New or the Jubilee Course which lie alongside the illustrious Old Course (note: tee times on the Old Course cannot be reserved independently).

Handicap: No handicap certificate required on the New or Jubilee Course

After your round on this coastal beauty you may wish to visit the British Golf Museum. Tracing from the middle ages to the present day, the British Golf Museum can provide the History of Golf for both Britain and abroad. You will also have time to see the ruins of St. Andrews Cathedral, once the largest church in Scotland, and see the buildings of the university where Prince William first met Catherine Middleton. Return to Gleneagles from here.

Wonderful Experience

By: Janice

Reviewed on: 27 Jul 2015

Abercrombie & Kent made arrangement for us to have drivers for July 5th, 6th and 7th and to return us to Dublin on the 8th. Although the drivers said they were not from A&K, they had been hired by them and took us to the preplanned sites and tours that we had agreed on. In addition, they (one on the 5th and 6th, another one on the 7th and 8th) included many sites and historical tours of the cities which we visited. Both were excellent drivers and expert guides! They were not, apparently, aware of the agreed to contract with A&K and we did have to pay for admission to all the tours that required fees, but we felt we got so much more from their experience that the cost was well worth what we paid.

Our family loved our trip to London! We were well taken care of by Peter and Vanessa. They were warm and welcoming to us in addition to being very knowledgable about everything London. Our Guardian Angel checked in on us several times and it was nice to have a contact in London in case an emergency arose. Thank you for helping to execute a wonderful, memorable trip!
