I cannot agree more on the review below. I love Royal Dornoch, which I consider the best links of all, but I found Castle Stuart a wonderful experience as well.
Yes, it might not be the real Scottish link course as the fairways are wide and flat, but the fun in playing it is the same and the views of the Moray Firth are incredible. Definitely more forgivable than Dornoch and Royal Aberdeen (another of my favorite) but really enjoyable.
If you add to all of the above the warmth of the entire staff and the beauty of the clubhouse (what a view from the lockers room!) I would definitely rank the experience at Castle Stuart among the top 10 in all the British Isles.
