A member of the Leading Hotels of the World group, this countryside estate in the heart of Scotland has been described as the ‘Riviera in the Highlands’.
A range of luxurious bedrooms and suites make up the accommodation options here, with a choice of modern or traditional interior design.
Many of the guestrooms offer breathtaking views out over the picturesque grounds, so every glance out of the window is a reminder of your magnificent location.
Gleneagles is renowned as one of the UK’s premier golfing destinations, and there are few finer or more prestigious destinations to play a round. The resort has hosted plenty of major tournaments – including the 2014 Ryder Cup – so stepping onto the green here means walking in the footsteps of golfing icons. A quartet of courses, three at Championship-level, offer a combined 63 holes (with two nineteenth holes), showcased year-round with the calendar of golf tournaments and events. Those keen to brush up on their swing can head to the Pitch & Putt course or putting green before hitting the fairways.
Away from the pristine greens, there’s a staggering array of activities on offer for non-golf lovers. Classic country pursuits include riding at the equestrian centre, lawn croquet, shooting, canoeing, archery and fishing. For something a little different, why not opt for zip lining, a Segway tour or a wildlife photography course? There’s also the award-winning spa – the only one in Scotland designated a Luxury Spa Resort – should some extra pampering be in order, and dining at Scotland’s only restaurant to hold two Michelin Stars.
As well as being an ideal destination for a romantic escape or a solo getaway, Gleneagles is a fantastic choice for a family holiday; ask our Travel Specialists about family break packages during school holidays. The supervised creche Little Glen welcomes young guests aged 2-9, while The Den offers a space to chill out and play for 6 to 15-year-olds.
Accommodation at Gleneagles comprises 232 luxury bedrooms, including 27 suites, while still offering the individuality of an intimate hotel. Guests can choose between traditional or modern interiors, with many rooms offering expansive vistas out over the grounds. All rooms and suites benefit from a pillow menu, Asprey amenities and a complimentary music library. Family accommodation is also available upon request.
Inspired by a classic French bistro and open all day, The Birnham Brasserie’s menu boasts a selection of French-American classic favourites, including steak frites and bouillabaisse, along with lighter choices like sandwiches and salads. The Birnham’s Sunday brunch – Scotland’s most decadent – is unmissable, featuring a cocktail station, classic brunch classics and live music.
A call-back to the glamour of the 1920s and 30s, The American Bar is the place to be for drinks and tipples in the ultimate style. Enjoy 1920s-inspired cocktails; champagnes by the glass, bottle and magnum; and an exceptional caviar selection. Guests at The American Bar are politely requested to dress appropriately for the sophistication and glitz of this adult-only bar.
Newly-refurbished, The Strathearn combines elements of traditional Gueridon service with celebrating the grandeur of Scotland’s countryside. The experience here is described as being akin to going to the theatre, and features classic silver cloches and nostalgic Gleneagles glamour. Menus celebrate local produce, with dishes including Borders Lamb, Native Hebridean Salmon and Aged Tweed Valley Beef.
Scotland’s premier eatery, this is the country’s only two Michelin-starred restaurant. Helmed by celebrated chef Andrew Fairlie, meals here are unforgettable, blending French techniques with classic Scottish cuisine. Don’t miss the restaurant’s signature dish – smoked lobster, which is smoked for five-hours over whisky barrel chips.
Settle in at The Dormy for views across the King’s and Queen’s Courses and an invitingly relaxed atmosphere. The menu features classic grills and comfort food classics, alongside a range of specialities freshly cooked in tandoor and pizza ovens.
Featuring a menu of over 120 single malts, The Century Bar is the perfect place for a tipple. Vintage champagne, a range of cocktails, hand-selected wines and a selection of international beers are also on offers. Food is served 12-5pm, making this the perfect spot to meet for lunch or a snack. Head back in the evening to sample some of the best Scottish whiskies.
Named after the original phone number here, this is an atmospheric and inviting venue for dining. An extensive menu of craft beers accompany a varied menu, featuring small plates like haggis pakora and duck spring rolls.
Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply want to treat yourself, afternoon tea here is a luxury delight. Freshly-made pastries, delectable cakes and varied finger sandwiches are served in the beautiful Glendevon Room. Sit back, enjoy your feast and look out over the Ochil Hills.
