Braemar Golf Course, at Braemar (tel. 01339/741-618; www.braemargolf.com), is the highest golf course in the country. The 2nd-hole green is 380m (1,250 ft.) above sea level -- this is the trickiest hole on the course. Pro golf commentator Peter Alliss has deemed it "the hardest par 4 in all of Scotland." Set on a plateau, the hole is bordered on the right by the River Clunie and on the left by rough. Daily greens fees are £37 for 18 holes. Pull carts can be rented for £5 per day, and sets of clubs can be borrowed for £9 per day. The only dress code is "be reasonable." The course is open only April to October daily (call in advance as hours can vary).
