Travelling to Scotland
Big weekend golf breaks are designed to minimise disruption to your working week. Schedules are built on an assumption that you can leave work mid afternoon to early evening, on a Friday. We envisage you arriving at either Edinburgh or Glasgow, be it their international aiports or respective railway stations.
Golfer’s travelling from within the UK, or flying from continental Europe, do have more options as you would expect. Many of you will be able to arrive in Edinburgh/ Glasgow on the Friday evening. This will incur an extra nights accommodation, but will allow you to make an earlier start the next morning
Those of you flying the Atlantic however will arrive early on Saturday morning. There are direct flights from Newark, New Jersey, and JFK to Edinburgh leaving at 20.05 and 21.55. Alternatively there is a Lufthansa flight operated by United, that leaves Newark at 19.35 and flies direct to Glasgow. The whole secret to the Big weekend is that you’re at least in Scotland early on the Saturday
