Currently we live in the Rocky Mountains in a rural area on large parcel of land. As "gentleman/woman farmers" whose livestock are deer, foxes, bear and mountain lions, a lifestyle in a less arid climate would be welcome. As avid golfers, the UK being a golfer's paradise draws our interests.

When younger we enjoyed living 25 miles from nearest grocery store (or had more energy) and are ready for a change. We are biologists retired from the government and have lived here for 15 years, prior to that, in a big city.

Europe has always been a favorite travel destination. Any suggestions?

    Glasgow. Has all the facilites that a city should have, great pubs, bars and restaurants, [plus surrounded by very good Golf courses. You could get a membership of a good course at a reasonable price with no hassle. almost 6 years ago

    St. Andrews, of course, is a great place; also Aviemore is a nice spot close to many high end golf courses as well as skiing. Fishing is great on the Spey and the local beer, Cairngorm Brewery's, is awesome. almost 6 years ago

    I would suggest Broughty Ferry. It's on the outskirts of the city of Dundee on the River Tay and 10 minutes from Monifieth and 30 minutes from St Andrews. almost 6 years ago

    FWI, we just spent 10 days at Turnberry. Ayrshire is FULL of golf courses. But I asked if they use carts, answer, "Yes, sometimes" but they mean push carts while walking. Never saw a single ride-on golf cart at Turnberry or any of the others we drove past. It seems to be the people's sport there though so you'll have a great time. Ayrshire towns, like Kilmarnock, seem cheaper than Glasgow but fewer nightlife and dining options. Still, it's small compared to West US so you can drive to the big cities in a few hours. As here, trade offs to consider. over 5 years ago
