18 Reasons to Play at Tain
Overlooking the Dornoch Firth, Tain arguably offers one of the best settings imaginable in the highlands for a round of golf . With sea on one side and the backdrop of the mountains behind, every day brings a different aspect to this challenging and beautiful course.
Designed in 1890 by Old Tom Morris, the layout of the holes guarantees an interesting round for beginners or experts. The sheltered location of the course ensures favourable weather for most of the year - winter greens are seldom used at Tain.
Visitors should be aware of the likely distractions to their concentration on play - the mountains and seascapes, the otters, deer, pinemartins, heron, buzzards, ospreys, various ducks and seabirds, sky larks and so much more.
