A £250,000 Valentine experience on board the Royal Yacht BRITANNIA

The Royal Yacht Britannia is one of the most exclusive evening events venues in the UK and we’re offering the ultimate Valentine experience for one lucky couple. We’ve teamed up with Scotland’s luxury jewellery house and Royal Warrant Holder, Hamilton & Inches, to offer the most luxurious Valentine experience that money can buy.

Priced at £250,000, the evening begins with a chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce, courtesy of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Edinburgh, from The Balmoral Hotel for a private quayside arrival at Britannia.

The couple will be piped aboard via the Royal Brow, an entrance previously reserved for The Royal Family. The finest vintage Krug Champagne and delicious canapés, all made on board in the original Royal Galleys, will be served in the State Drawing Room.

There, you will meet a Master Craftsman from Hamilton & Inches for a private viewing of their Signature Suite collection, a hand-crafted three piece suite of jewellery consisting of diamond collar necklace, diamond earrings and diamond cuff bracelet, featuring over 660 diamonds. Created in celebration of Hamilton & Inches 150th anniversary, this is the only suite to exist in the world and will be yours to wear and enjoy throughout the evening, and to own for a lifetime!

Britannia’s Executive Chef Mark Alston will create an exquisite ten-course tasting menu, served by the Royal Yacht’s butlers, with paired wines personally selected from the Moët & Hennessy collection by Britannia’s Head Sommelier.

This sumptuous dinner will be served in the State Dining Room, where Her Majesty The Queen once entertained kings and queens, presidents and celebrities, whilst a classical string duo play a selection of romantic songs, throughout the evening. After dinner, enjoy a glass or two of rare Hennessy Paradis Imperial Cognac, from your very own custom engraved bottle. The evening concludes with a spectacular private fireworks display before returning to The Balmoral Hotel, where a night in the Castle View suite awaits.

Britannia’s Ultimate Luxury Valentine’s Experience also includes private jet transfers with Jet Logic from any airport in the UK.

Gleneagles has been named Scotland’s Best Hotel in the Golfer Travel Awards 2017

Gleneagles Resort has been named Scotland’s Best Hotel in the ‘Today’s Golfer Travel Awards 2017’ for the 4th consecutive year.
The Today’s Golfer Travel Awards recognise the best courses and hotels in the world, as voted for by the readers of Today’s Golfer – the UK’s best-selling golf magazine.

 

Gleneagles’ Director of Golf, Gary Silcock, said: “Securing this title for the fourth year in a row bolsters Gleneagles’ reputation as Scotland’s foremost golfing destination, and reflects how highly our facilities are regarded by golfers across the UK.

 

“The recent investment we’ve made into every aspect of the golfer’s journey – within our team, across our three courses, within the hotel and clubhouse, and at the PGA National Golf Academy – is testament to our unwavering commitment to providing guests with an outstanding golfing experience, first-class facilities and impeccable service.

 

“Off-course, the Gleneagles golf offering is complemented by five-star accommodation, exceptional dining options, and an unparalleled range of other leisure activities – which sets us apart and ensures our golfers leave with lasting memories.”

 

He added: “It’s a tremendous honour to win this award, and we’d like to thank all those who voted for us, but we won’t be resting on our laurels.

 

“As we prepare for hosting the 2018 European Championships and the 2019 Solheim Cup, our ongoing investment programme will take us from strength to strength, and we look forward to further enhancing the golfer’s experience in the months and years ahead.”

Cameron House on Loch Lomond will have a Loch-Side Terrace

A brand new outdoor terrace is being created to showcase the unique panoramic views from the hotel and will offer guests a greater connection with the natural beauty of the area. Phase two of the refurbishment is due to be completed in May 2017, it includes a redesign of the hotel’s bedrooms.

The new terrace will act as both an alfresco bar area and an outdoor events space. Frameless glass balustrading to the terrace will ensure views are maximised, with a covered timber deck creating a warmth to the space both from within and when viewed from the surrounding areas. The existing glazing will also be replaced, with doors opening out on the terrace and larger expanses of glass introduced, giving a minimal, contemporary feel.

Phase two of the refurbishment will see Cameron House invest a further £1 million into the resort. Cameron House invested £3 million earlier this year as part of phase one of their ongoing refurbishment, which focussed on revamping the food and beverage offering, including The Cameron Grill and new cocktail bar, along with the hotel’s other public spaces.

Andy Roger, Resort Director said: “We are continuing to invest in Cameron House and are committed to making it the ultimate luxury destination in Scotland. We are truly privileged to have a unique setting that boasts such an abundance of natural beauty. The terrace will bring an exciting new dimension to our offering, with guests able to relax outdoors and take in the stunning panorama.”

The new terrace will accommodate 60 seated or 120 standing and access will be through the Great Scots Bar or via a staircase at the front of the hotel.

For larger groups there will be a tour guide present who will breathalyse any member of the tour who is suspected of being over the drink drive limit before entering any of the cars, it is the client’s responsibility to ensure he/she adheres to the drink driving laws of the country and not that of Lang Atholl Limited, even if a guide is present. If this is the case the member in question will not be allowed to drive for that day and will spend the day in the lead vehicle. For smaller groups and if a guide is not present it is the clients responsibility to ensure that they have adhered to all drink driving laws and not the responsibility of Lang Atholl Limited. Due to this fact all meals are included in the price however no alcohol will be included. Guests are welcome to drink when away from the cars as long as they do so responsibly and still meet the limits the following day.
