Only 1 mile away from Craiglea bed & breakfast, we have Braemar Golf Club which is the highest 18 hole golf course in the United Kingdom. At around 1200 feet above sea level, the 4935 yard par 65 course will set you a challenge.

With the river Clunie running through the heart of the course and surrounded by mountains, what spectacular scenery you will find yourself amongst while playing a round.

Braemar golf club was chosen as 1 of 4 destinations for the Ryder Cup Trophy to be taken to before the 2016 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.

There are clubs, trolleys and buggies for hire if you don’t have your own on this lovely course in Upper Deeside.


After you have finished your round, you will be made more than welcome in the clubhouse, where you can enjoy a drink or meal looking out over the first fairway.

Also within 45 minutes drive of here, there are various other courses including Ballater, Aboyne and Banchory.

We are keen golfers where Dave coached the juniors and our son is doing professional golf as a career.
