The Most Luxurious Hotels in Scotland
by Fitzroy of London
The Fitzroy of London team love hotels, architecture and interior design, so we’re taking a look at some of the most luxurious hotels around the world. This week, we’re focusing on the beauty and luxury of Scotland.
Here are just some of the luxury hotels we’ve come across:
This mansion house, just outside of Glencoe Village, used to be part of the estate owned by Lord Strathcona, a leading light in the development of Canada and its railways. He bought 48,000 acres in 1895 and commissioned Sir Robert Rowand Anderson to design the house.
Owned by tennis star Andy Murray, this Perthshire hotel has just been named the most luxurious in Scotland – for the third year running.
Cromlix, close to Murray’s hometown of Dunblane, has been voted Luxury Hotel of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards every year since it first opened its doors in 2014.
With a 36-acre woodland estate, the Victorian country house has celebrity chef Albert Roux as its culinary consultant and its ten bedrooms and fives suites are all named after Scottish Greats – from Hoy and Ferguson to Conan Doyle and Mackintosh.
Gleaneagles, which opened its doors in 1924, has more than 230 bedrooms, 850 acres of grounds and three championship golf course. Last year, the Perthshire venue was sold to a group of private investors led by London-based hospitality firm Ennismore, which also owns London’s Hoxton Hotel.
Inverlochy Castle Hotel
Located close to Fort William, Inverlochy Castle Hotel is housed in a picturesque 19th century castle, surrounded by lush greenery.
The 17 bedrooms and suites here offer stunning views of the hotel’s grounds and private loch, and are decorated in an opulent and rustic style.
The Marcliffe Hotel and Spa
South West of Aberdeen city centre, the Marcliffe has 40 lovely suites and bedrooms, with plenty of space for the whole family – including dogs.
The on-site spa offers beauty care and therapeutic treatments for all guests, including massages, aroma therapy and facials.
Fonab Castle Hotel & Spa
Close to Pitlochry in Perthshire, the fairytale-like and historic Fonab Castle has been restored into a modern and inviting hotel.
A variety of rooms and suites offer different ambiances and the on-site spa offers everything from a 15 metre swimming pool to a sauna and aroma relax room.
Enjoy everything from afternoon tea to dinner and drinks without stepping foot outside.
A stone’s throw from Edinburgh city centre, you’ll feel like you’re in a different world on arrival at the exquisite Prestonfield House.
Opulent and unique, the hotel was once a private residence set within 20 acres of gardens, and offers luxury rooms as well as several impressive suites.
