Day 7 - Gleneagles: A glorious playground

  • Gleneagles Scotland (map)

Gleneagles is one of the great hotel experiences in a country famed for its love of country sports. Its vast estate is thrown open to guests – for walking, for playing golf, for learning to ride horses, shoot clays or fly fish, or simply to luxuriate in the spa – and for that reason this day is all yours, to do with what you will. Those of you still hungry for shops and culture may want to take a day trip to the handsome city of Glasgow, accessible by train, just let us know your desires and we will help to realize them.

Keep the late afternoon for us, though, because we are staging a true Scots Soirée at Gleneagles’ own hunting lodge, privatized exclusively for our event! Look in your rooms where you’ll find a surprise that you’ll be using this evening (yes men, you may wear underpants, though going native could be more fun).  We kick-off the evening with a warming whisky tasting alongside a display of working gundogs (don’t worry--they’ll be searching for dummies not dead birds!).   As it that weren’t enough, post-dinner we reel into the night with Scottish cèilidh country dancing led by rousing traditional band.  Yes folks, we will even have a dance caller to teach us the steps, so grab your partner!
