Golf holidays near Edinburgh

East Lothian, rightly known as 'Scotland's Golf Coast', boasts some of the best links and inland golf courses in the world. North Berwick, Gullane and Dunbar lead the way.

There are 22 excellent golf courses within 10 to 20 minutes drive of Winton Castle, including Craigielaw, Royal Musselburgh (the oldest playing golf course in the world) and Longniddry, with friendly clubhouses and affordable green fees.

There's more information on the Golf East Lothian website.

Historically, the owners of Winton Estate have played a critical role in developing East Lothian's most famous golf courses because their lands originally included Muirfield (site of the 2013 Open), Archerfield and Gullane.

If you are planning a golf break with friends, then please ask about Wintonhill Farmhouse, our classic Georgian 4 star self-catering farmhouse that sleeps 12, complete with its own practice bunker and chipping area.

If you want to stay in your own castle, you Winton Castle sleeps up to 16 guests and provides facilities for grand dinners and parties in historic Scottish Renaissance splendour.

Catering can also be provided with these properties.
