Golfing and golf breaks in Perthshire

Such variety makes Perthshire an outstanding golf destination. Base yourself at The Atholl Arms and enjoy all of these course styles! And proximity to the hotel, clear air and excellent long light from spring to autumn allows two invigorating and stimulating rounds per day comfortably. Perhaps a combination of an exciting 18 and a gentle 9 for the more restrained.
