Set on 850 acres of Perthshire countryside, Gleneagles Hotel is a dream destination for anyone who loves the great outdoors. Famed for the three championship golf courses (they will host the Ryder Cup in 2014), as well as facilities for, and instruction in, world-class archery, falconry, horseback riding, off-road driving, and a Gundog School.
It is a great family destination, as children can join in with junior golf and off-road driving lessons, mini Highland games, and even a spy school. At the two-Michelin–starred restaurant, Andrew Fairlie @ Gleneagles, much of the produce is sourced locally.
This commitment to the environment extends to an award-winning green program, which sees staff on bikes and corks reused in drainage—all to help to preserve the resort’s awe-inspiring natural landscapes.
