Among the world’s largest sporting events, The Ryder Cup has long been the highlight of the golfing season, and what better place to host the prestigious competition than Scotland, the home of golf and the host of the first ever Ryder Cup back in 1921. In 2014, the biennial tournament returns to the grand King’s Course at Gleneagles, with Europe defending their 2012 win against the USA and 24 of the world’s greatest golfers turning out for the tournament, led by team captains Paul McGinley (Europe) and Tom Watson (U.S).
It might be best known as the capital of the Scottish Highlands and the gateway to the North, but Inverness is also a lively destination in its own right and the city boasts a busy schedule of seasonal events. From Celtic sporting traditions to summer music festivals, here are some of the best festivals and events in Inverness.
Summertime might be the city’s busiest time of year, but visiting Glasgow in autumn is an ideal time to avoid the crowds, experience some of Scotland’s most unique arts and cultural events, and bag a bargain.
Scotland might be better known for its windswept peaks and rugged coastal cliffs, than its sunny beaches and holiday resorts, but the northern half of the UK is still an idyllic place to spend the summer months. From joining the festivities at the world’s biggest arts festival to island hopping around the coast, these are some of Scotland’s best summer destinations.
