Edinburgh is an multi-award-winning, world-class tourist destination. From stunning skylines to sandy beaches, festivals to fireworks – the city has something for everyone, day and night.

But Edinburgh isn’t living in the past – it’s a vibrant, cosmopolitan city, boasting an exceptional blend of contemporary pubs and bars, restaurants, specialist retailers and leading tourist attractions. Days can be spent exploring the city’s medieval alleyways and glorious architecture – not least the magnificent Edinburgh Castle, dramatically perched on an extinct volcano, high above the city centre. Nights out in Edinburgh provide an opportunity to discover what makes the city tick amidst the bustling bars, clubs and lively street scenes.

Outside of Edinburgh, to the south of the Firth of Forth, Glenkinchie Distillery was established in 1824 in the Glen of Kinchie, from which it derives its name.

Whether it’s the stunning vistas the courses provide or the thrills and challenges along the way, perhaps it’s treading the same turf as some of the legends of the game, there are so many reasons to play golf at Gleneagles.
