At Gleneagles Hotel, You’ll Never Want to Come Inside!


Now is a great time for a visit to Scotland! We love the Gleneagles Hotel—a 5-star Scotland resort on 850 acres of Perthshire countryside. Just one hour from Edinburgh and Glasgow, Gleneagles is home to three championship golf courses, including The PGA Centenary Course, Host Venue for the 2014 Ryder Cup, more than 20 outdoor activities, an award-winning Spa by ESPA and four restaurants including Scotland’s only two Michelin-starred restaurant, Andrew Fairlie. Gleneagles recently announced a property-wide redesign that will preserve the iconic resort’s rich history and character while debuting chic guest rooms, stylish public areas, a new bar at Dormy Clubhouse and a revamp to the main bar.


From learning the art of Falconry and clay shooting to playing a round of golf on a championship course and relaxing in the award-winning spa, every member of the family will enjoy exploring the 800-acre luxury resort. From June 25 – September 4, there are daily summer adventures for everyone! Pitch ‘n’ putt, country pursuits, pony caregiving and Segway tours are just the beginning!

Children’s Country Sports Passport

Through the Children’s Country Sports Passport, Gleneagles provides world-class sporting schools for kids who want the ultimate educational outdoor experience. Local experts teach the art of falconry, clay shooting and archery as well as gundog training, fishing and junior off-road driving in mini Land Rovers through hands-on instruction.


The Chance to Own Your Own Pony

It’s every kid’s dream to own their own pony! Under the watchful eye of Gleneagles’ equestrian experts, you can learn how to properly care for Scotland’s indigenous Shetland ponies. Before a riding lesson, kids six and up can groom, cuddle and tend to the pony’s stable.

Take a Segway Tour!

Have some family fun time exploring the grounds on a Segway tour! The 45-minute guided tour is a fun way to get around and allows access to places not easily accessible by car.


Pitch & Putt

If you’re kids are interested in golf, why not have them experience the game where it first got its start? For those not quite ready to take to the courses, our nine hole Pitch & Putt  is great fun for all ages and abilities. An 11-acre championship practice ground, as well as several putting greens ensure you never have to go far to hit a few balls!


Looking for a savings this summer? The hotel is offering the “Save on Seven” package that includes:

- Legendary Gleneagles breakfast at The Strathearn
- Full use of the club facilities
- Valid now through September 30
- Rates start at £2,075 for seven nights, based on two people in a Sovereign room

Hope to see you there!
