The Carrick on Loch Lomond has transformed ‘The Highland Laddie' riverboat into a unique half-way house.

The former riverboat was recently unveiled to provide golfers with the a spot to relax mid-way through their round.

The ‘Laddie' has been carefully dug into the course in between the 9th green and 10th tee, with a time-capsule, buried under the boat containing golfing memorabilia from The Carrck.

"We firmly believe that this is the most unique half-way house in the country and will be an important addition to The Carrick.

"We're obviously currently in the midst of some fantastic weather and The Highland Laddie is the ideal pit stop," commented Ross Whitfield, General Manager, The Carrick on Loch Lomond.

The Carrick has heavily invested in a host of initiatives that have been led by Golf Course Manager Jim Brown, further enhancing the highly-regarded resort.

"We are always searching for ways to improve The Carrick and provide one of the most memorable golf experiences anywhere in the country," added Whitfield.

"With a host of other developments over the past 12 months, we think we are providing exactly that."

The Carrick is one of 19 courses currently thriving in De Vere's pioneering golf membership scheme, ‘The De Vere Club', which offers golfers a flexible golf club membership with full playing rights at each of its twelve venues.
