Cabot Highlands: An Oasis for Golf Enthusiasts

Nestled in the picturesque town of Inverness, Scotland, Cabot Highlands – part of The Cabot Collection, is a premium golf resort that combines a love for the sport with a deep appreciation for nature and Scottish heritage. Following the acquisition of the iconic Castle Stuart Golf Links, Cabot Highlands has embarked on a significant expansion, promising to further enrich the world-renowned golfing experience it offers.

In the heart of the Scottish Highlands, Cabot has become a paradise for golfers, thanks to the award-winning Castle Stuart course, which is in itself a reflection of the rich tapestry of golfing history in Scotland.

A New Chapter: The Tom Doak Course

The highlight of this expansion plan is the introduction of a new golf course, designed by the esteemed golf architect Tom Doak. With a vision to recreate the feel of a course from 200 years ago, this 18-hole golf course will surround a 400-year-old castle, intertwining with the natural contours of the land, over hills and expansive plains, including several holes by the water.

Tom Doak commented on the project, stating, “As architects, our greatest joy is to try and sort out the best way to have fun over a raw piece of ground, but the ultimate success would be to leave the golfer the same sort of puzzle.”

The Expansion Plan: Raising the Bar in Golf Resort Experiences

Scheduled to begin construction in the fall of 2023, the expanded clubhouse will add 11,000 square feet of space and feature new dining areas, providing golfers with ample space to unwind after a day on the green. The resort also plans to offer exciting new real estate opportunities, with sales set to begin in 2024. The landscape-inspired cottages will feature modern touches, and when not in use by owners, will serve as luxury accommodations for guests.

Ben Cowan-Dewar, CEO and co-founder of Cabot, shared his enthusiasm for the project: “In the historic home of golf, we looked to Tom to create something special, and perhaps unconventional by modern standards. His vision of resurrecting an old true-links style course will serve as a great complement to the beloved Castle Stuart Golf Links.”

Beyond Golf: A Wealth of Outdoor Adventures Await

Cabot Highlands offers not only a premier golfing experience but also an array of outdoor activities in the stunning natural beauty of the Highlands. From hiking, cycling, and fishing to falconry, horseback riding, and boat tours of the famed Loch Ness, visitors have a plethora of adventures to choose from.

“In our 2023 golf season at Cabot Highlands, we have been met with incredible excitement from our community and visitors alike,” said longtime General Manager Stuart McColm. “Ben and the Cabot team are the perfect stewards for our historic property, and working alongside a visionary such as Tom Doak sets the stage for a remarkable resort and golf experience that would make our beloved founder, Mark Parsinen, very proud.”

From the magnificent golf courses to the unrivaled natural beauty of the Scottish Highlands, Cabot Highlands is setting a new standard for golf resorts, creating an awe-inspiring destination that will captivate golf enthusiasts and adventurers alike for generations to come.
