The Gleneagles Hotel

Last updated: 03 December, 2023

When this grand Scottish hotel first opened in 1924 it was dubbed ‘a Riviera in the Highlands’.

Today, it’s still the ultimate Scottish resort, famous, of course, for its golf courses and Pringle-touting clientele, but also sporting a staggering range of additional activities – everything from gun dog school to falconry, wildlife photography to off-road driving.

For the more sedentary, there’s a sleek destination spa and two-Michelin-starred restaurant. It’s a one-stop holiday shop.

Unusually for a luxury hotel, Gleneagles is dog-friendly; providing a dog-bed, bowl, dog-in-residence sign for the door, doggy treats – and a pooper scooper for those walks in the ground.

Surrounding area

This is not the dramatic mountainous part of Perthshire. The countryside around here is rolling green hills, woodland and lush farmland, while Auchterarder is a small village nearby.

However, you won’t trip over neighbours when you step out of the hotel – although you might be run over by a golf buggy. The 850-acre estate is sprawling, crisscrossed by walking, jogging and cycling routes.
