Among the most interesting golf courses in Scotland is Cruden Bay, effortlessly navigating the rugged linksland and almost 40-foot-high sand dunes. Given the landscape, many of the holes are actually secluded from the rest of the golf course—a rarity in Scotland. A landscape dotted with bunkers and gently undulating fairways at the bottom of the dunes is a commonality in the British Isles, but you’ll see greens unlike anything else in the world at Cruden Bay, making this a highlight of any trip.
