Golf aficionados can sail through Scotland aboard the Scottish Highlander hotel barge with European Waterways.
For golfers who want to book individual cabins and get the chance to meet other golfers, sail dates are May 10 and Oct. 4, 2015. However, this golf-themed boat charter can be booked all season. Highlights include a round of golf at the Royal Dornoch Championship; a round at the 18-hole, Par 72 Castle Stuart course, where guests play overlooking the Moray Firth, an inlet of the North Sea; a cruise on Loch Ness; and a round at the Fort Augustus course, one of the toughest 9-hole, par 67 courses in Soctland, where sheep are allowed to roam freely.
Rates start at $4,090 pp dbl including all meals, wines, an open bar, daily escorted excursions, and local transfers. Whole boat charters are also available starting at $22,000. Those who choose to play golf (including on charters) pay an additional $900 pp. Golf cruises include four pre-booked tee times and transfers to and from the courses. Agents earn 10 percent on all bookings. For more information, call (877) 879-8808 or visit gobarging.com.
