HOGMANAY AT GLENEAGLES
Since opening its doors in June 1924, Gleneagles has been one of Scotland’s most iconic hotels and sporting estates.
Set beneath the Ochil Hills, in the heart of Perthshire, Gleneagles offers a quintessential British New Year for families with a multitude of activities on offer. Hogmanay and New Year’s Day at Gleneagles never cease to amaze guests, this year topped in true Scottish style, with air rifle shooting, Scottish dancing lessons and a traditional Hogmanay dinner with live music and fireworks. Whilst the children are entertained with action-packed days in the grounds of the hotel, mothers and groups of friends can be pampered at the recently launched ‘Bob & Cloche’ – a glamorous 1920s inspired beauty lodge, where a team of expert therapists and stylists will be on hand to pamper with facials, manicures and beauty makeovers, while guests sip champagne and nibble on canapés. Now under the ownership of Ennismore, Gleneagles has undergone a multi-million-pound refurbishment – enlisting the skills and expertise of some of the UK’s most acclaimed designers including David Collins Studio and Goddard Littlefair creating spaces that celebrate the rich, glamorous heritage and beautiful architecture that the hotel is famed for. With 232 luxury bedrooms and suites the new design of the hotel means there are even more spaces where guests can mingle, relax and better enjoy the dramatic views of the Perthshire. There is nowhere that exemplifies the hotel’s style better than in its restaurants. There is something for all types of families looking to refuel after a day of exploring the great outdoors – from relaxed Clubhouse lunches to Michelin starred fine dining for a special occasion.
