The East Coast and a Stunning Scotland District
Being in Barbados’ Scotland District and the East Coast is like entering an undiscovered world. Very much hidden away from the bustle of the west coast, this side of the island assures natural landscapes, rugged cliffsides, and hills thrown with blankets of lush green foliage. It’s certainly a far cry from the not-too-distant Holetown.
From the 13th and 14th holes your views will include groves of coconut trees and indigenous forest that are preserved as part of our natural heritage.
The Scotland District is home to Cattlewash and Bathsheba beaches, the “sleeping giant” (a clay and stone hillside under a sheet of grass and shrubs), swirling white caps of an unforgiving Atlantic ocean, coastal reef that exposes rock pools with fish and marine life at low tide, world class surfing (Kelly Slater is a big fan), and impressive boulders that appear to have been chucked onto the beach like marbles being pitched.
This district is critical in Barbados’ history: the area is part of an underwater mountain range that emerged from the ocean millions of years ago. Currently, it is an ancient landscape of gullies and indigenous forest.
