Gleneagles Hotel celebrates its 90th anniversary

June 19, 2014

When The Gleneagles Hotel first opened its doors to high society in 1924 it was described as ‘A Riviera in the Highlands’ and ‘the eighth wonder of the world’. A glorious playground for people dedicated to leisure and relaxation, Gleneagles is proud to have played a part in creating lasting memories for generations of guests. Celebrating the 90 th anniversary in 2014, Gleneagles remains a haven of luxury British heritage that offers a five star hotel experience.

Set within the gentle beauty of 850 acres of Perthshire countryside, the hotel is home to three championship golf courses, a sparkling multi award-winning spa, sumptuous guest bedrooms, elegant fine dining including Andrew Fairlie - Scotland's only two Michelin star restaurant - and an array of exhilarating outdoor activities. Guests will undoubtedly leave refreshed and rejuvenated.

To mark this landmark anniversary, Gleneagles are giving guests the opportunity to join in the celebrations with the A Special Blend or Stay for (£)1924 packages.

A Special Blend As part of our 90th birthday celebrations, we’ve created a unique whisky experience where you can discover the art, skill and magic of whisky blending. You can have a go at creating your own elixir to enjoy in the Gleneagles bar and take a home with you as a perfect memento of your stay.

Can you reach the heights of the exquisite Johnnie Walker Blue Label, one of the world’s most famous blended whiskies? Using a selection of carefully chosen single malts, our “Perfect Pour” experience will teach you how to identify, savour and blend the various flavours of whisky. Stay from £345 per room per night based on two people sharing a Sovereign room, including breakfast and whisky blending for two.

Stay for (£)1924 The Royal Lochnagar suite honours Gleneagles’ heritage, with its classic luxury and stunning views. It’s the perfect base for an out-of-this-world stay. Between January and June 2014 guests can enjoy an overnight stay in the Royal Lochangar which also includes canapés and the 90 th anniversary signature cocktail in the suite on arrival, Table D’hôte dinner in The Strathearn restaurant, complimentary private chauffeur drive transfers from Edinburgh or Glasgow and finished with the legendary Gleneagles breakfast – all for the fitting price of £1,924 per night, based on two people sharing.

Whether you are escaping the crisp wintry air, recharging your batteries in spring or enjoying our long summer evenings, Gleneagles is the ideal getaway all year long. For further information visit www.gleneagles.com or call Resort Sales on 0800 704 705.
