Mention the word ‘luxury’ and the expectations
of world travellers are instantly raised.
Today’s luxury travellers expect the highest levels of service and satisfaction and to achieve that, all elements in the service chain must work seamlessly, from transport and accommodation, food and beverage, specialist tours and concierge support.
At Luxury Scotland we pride ourselves on having the best of Scotland’s luxury hotels amongst our members who provide the complete travel experience and to support our collection of destinations we have a range of carefully selected partners that can help enhance that experience.

For the past 21 years I have had the privilege of co-ordinating, nurturing and growing this little group of likeminded hoteliers who work together to provide one of the world’s great travel experiences. Within our members we have Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa, where Zach Johnson won the 144th Open last month, The Gleneagles Hotel, Trump Turnberry, Cameron House and Trump International, 5 of the great golf venues in the world, although wherever you are in Scotland you are never far from a golf course.
As well as world class golf and spa resorts there are also luxury town house hotels, country house hotels, city centre properties and with just four utterly spectacular rooms,21212, which is a Restaurant with Rooms situated in the heart of Edinburgh.
We also have two moving hotels, Belmond Royal Scotsman, the world’s most luxurious train and MV Hebridean Princess, the only cruise liner in the world with a Royal Warrant, both of which take travellers to those hidden treasures of Scotland not normally accessible through other forms of transport.
Adding yet another magical dimension to the Luxury Scotland collection we have a couple of romantic castles, Inverlochy Castle being Queen Victoria’s favourite, Knockinaam Lodge which featured in John Buchan’s book The 39 Steps and Glencoe House, an all-suite hotel strategically located on the top of a hill in Glencoe with the most wonderful views and you have all that you need to plan the next holiday of your life.
Wherever you go this month, enjoy August!
