Gleneagles
Perthshire

When it opened in 1924, Gleneagles, inspired by a belle-epoque grand palais, was described as a 'Riveria of the Highlands'. This spectacular hotel, set amidst 850 acres of stunning Perthshire countryside, has lost none of its charm. Less than an hour by chauffer service from Edinburgh and Glasgow international airports and five minutes from the Gleneagles train station, it is an ideal setting for couples and families alike who are looking for leisure and relaxation.

The estate’s 232 rooms and 26 suites are a happy compromise between traditional and contemporary, decorated with chic tartan cushions and bed throws to compliment a modern yet cosy colour scheme of creams, beiges, whisky and oatmeal. They are of course en-suite and have all the modern amenities one could wish for.

Dining at Gleneagles is legendary. For formal dining choose between Andrew Fairlie, Scotland's only holder of two Michelin stars serving French cuisine with a Scottish twist, or The Strathearn, the hotel's grand dining room that dates from its opening in 1924 which offers the finest classic dishes. For an informal environment Deseo is a bustling restaurant with a vibrant global menu, and The Century Bar, Auchterarder 70 and The Dormy Clubhouse ensure one has plenty of options during a longer stay.

With three 18-hole champion courses, it’s no wonder that Gleneagles is best known for its golf. World-famous for its picturesque courses, Gleneagles was the official venue of the Ryder Cup in 2014 and boasts some of the best indoor and outdoor practice facilities in the UK, as well as professional coaching and courses that are over 100 years old. Other outdoor pursuits include horse riding, fishing, falconry, shooting, archery and off-road driving. Suitable for all ages, the surrounding Scottish countryside makes for a glorious outdoor playground. For those less inclined to a day out on the green, the Gleneagles Club is a welcome haven; two heated indoor pools, thermal suite, sauna and spa, gym and tennis courts.

Within an hour’s drive of Edinburgh, Glasgow and The House of Bruar shopping and sightseeing opportunities are in abundance. The Cairngorms, Scone Palace and St. Andrews are also within easy reach. With plenty on offer and so much space in which to explore, there is little wonder as to why this world-class hotel remains such a popular option for the luxury traveller.

Client Testimonials

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
