ITINERARY HIGHLIGHTS



Your tailor-made programme could include any of the following experiences:

  • Board a helicopter for your transfers between the airport and your accommodation, providing stunning views of the rugged Highlands as you travel both in style and comfort.

 

  • Taste the national drink of Scotland in a tutored whisky tasting. The ‘water of life’ has been lovingly crafted in the country for centuries.

 

  • Enjoy a peaceful afternoon on the water as you explore Loch Ossian by rowing boat or canoe.

 

  • For thrill seekers, get your heart racing as you try your hand at white water rafting, gorge walking or mountain biking through the Laggan Forest.

 

  • Visit the ‘Harrods of the North’, an ideal place for high-end shopping. Here you can purchase cashmere, tweed, and traditional Scottish food and drink.

 

  • Attend a private BBQ dinner full of local food and entertainment in the ageless, cinematic surroundings of Sutherland.

 

  • Explore the country pursuits available at Gleneagles; falconry, clay pigeon shooting, the Gundog School, horse riding and golf.

 

  • Visit the ancestral home of King Robert the Bruce, and on a private guided tour discover the fascinating history of the Bruce family and Broomhall House.
  • Hike one of the trails through the 70,000 acres of conserved wilderness on the Corrour estate, and take in the breath-taking, uninterrupted views that few get the chance to see.

 

  • Take to the water on a private, high-speed RIB and see the white sandy beaches of Rabbit Island and the towering cliffs and hidden caves of Whiten Head.

 

  • Allow an expert ghillie to take you on a fishing expedition, hunt for salmon on the Kinloch river or trout on the hill lochs.

 

  • Have lunch in the UK’s most remote restaurant, also situated at the highest railway station in the country. Only accessible by foot or by train, the hearty homemade food and roaring log fires that beckon make it worth the journey.

 

  • Dine among treasures in The Cellars, where Gleneagles once received its wine by rails from all over Europe. This is an atmospheric venue for an unforgettable meal.

 

The accommodation Dream Escape will provide for you takes in the most magnificent locations in Scotland. Our recommendations include a beautiful, secluded retreat that combines contemporary interiors with uniquely Scottish details, and a traditional lodge perfect for those seeking some peace and quiet.

Lastly is, of course, the ‘Playground of the Gods’ with a legendary reputation that is undiminished since it first opened in 1924.

THINGS TO DO

4X4 OFF ROAD DRIVING

Just “armed with camera and binoculars” sit back and soak up the sights.

BROOMHALL HOUSE

For the first time since it was built more than 300 years ago, Broomhall House, the ancestral seat of the Earls of Elgin and the Fife home of the family of King Robert the Bruce has opened its doors.

A private guided tour conducted by Lord Bruce, the heir of the 11th Earl of Elgin will showcase this remarkable and fascinating property plus bring his extraordinary family history to life.

FALCONRY

Experience first-hand the art of falconry. Known as the “sport of kings”, this is a wonderful opportunity to see magnificent birds of prey up close. Often including Falcons, Owls, Hawks and Eagles; in full flight, they are spectacular.

PLACES VISITED

THE HIGHLANDS

The Highlands very much embody the romance of Scotland; they really are the Scotland of your imagination, a beautiful and inspiring region of ancient landscapes with a fascinating history. Spend the day exploring with your chauffeur-guide. There is a wealth of places to visit

INVERNESS

Despite being the largest city in the north, Inverness is more like a town in the atmosphere. The red sandstone exterior of Inverness castle, perched above the city centre, keeps a watchful eye over the region.

GLENEAGLES

Described as “a Riviera of the Highlands” when it first opened its doors in 1924. Today, its reputation for luxury is undiminished and offers sumptuous accommodation, impeccable service, Michelin-starred dining, and Championship parkland courses. Handicap not required on the King’s and Queen’s Courses.

CORROUR ESTATE

Sitting on 57,000 acres of conserved wilderness, Corrour provides an unparalleled opportunity to experience the Highlands. Built on the site of the original 1942 lodge, the construction of the new Lodge was completed in 2003. While the crisp geometric lines evoke a modern feel, the lodge is reminiscent of a traditional grand Scottish estate.
