Luxury Scotland’s chauffeur drive partner, Little’s, boosts their Eco-Fleet with new Mercedes Hybrids.

Award winning chauffeur drive company Little’s, has boosted their Eco-Fleet with the purchase of new Mercedes E class plugin hybrid cars. Committed to a sustainable business future, Little’s latest investment means that over 40% of their fleet is now hybrid vehicles.

Established in Glasgow in 1966. Little’s is a worldwide operation and one of Luxury Scotland’s Partners. The family run business is renowned for providing high-end services to international clients, large corporates and heads of states.

Heather Matthews, Managing Director of Little’s commented: “This latest purchase underlines our commitment to sustainable growth and investment in the future of the company. The recent technological advances in electric vehicles allow us to incorporate them in increasing numbers on fleet, secure in the knowledge that as well as their green credentials, clients will still experience the luxury they expect from a Little’s car”.

The Mercedes E Class Plug-in Hybrid has a range of 14 miles driven by the electric motor only. This is ideal for inner city areas and low emission zones. When operating in this mode, the vehicles are near silent, providing travelling passengers with added luxury and comfort and enabling corporate clients to relax or work in a quiet environment.

The conscious decision by Little’s to go hybrid is attractive to Little’s corporate clients who are keen to work with companies committed to reducing their carbon footprint.

Luxury Scotland welcomes Kinross House

We extend a warm welcome to  Kinross House, the latest member of Luxury Scotland.

An impressive and prestigious Scottish Palladian mansion house, Kinross House is available to hire for exclusive use. The House boasts a wealth of fine art, paintings, antiques and Scottish artifacts, many of which has been in the house for hundreds of years. Together with the sumptuous interiors and stunning location this makes for a truly rare guest experience.

Kinross House was built in 1685 and is the first neoclassical Palladian mansion ever built in Scotland. Described in Country Life Magazine as ‘the complete expression in stone of the Renaissance in Scotland’, the property was Sir William Bruce’s greatest masterpiece.

The House is located on the banks of Loch Leven and possesses one of the most historic views in Scotland with vistas directly across to Loch Leven Castle Island where, in 1567, Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned and forced to abdicate. Scottish history has been made on this Castle Island with key people setting foot there including Robert the Bruce, Sir William Wallace, John Knox and King Robert II.

Mr Donald Fothergill’s purchase of Kinross House in 2011 heralded the beginning of a total renovation project of a magnitude that can only be described as a labour of love. The restoration work was completed in 2013 and the property was winner of the prestigious Historic Houses Association and Sotheby’s UK Restoration Award of the year. No expense has been spared to make this breathtaking property reflect Sir William Bruce’s vision for opulent entertaining which will only be seen and experienced by the few. It truly is a unique and regal place of unparalleled beauty, fit for a King!

Kinross House Montage

The estate now comprises over 100 acres of formal gardens, woodland, Loch Leven Castle Island and Loch Leven (the largest loch in the Scottish lowlands). The area is of outstanding beauty and it was declared a National Nature Reserve (NNR) in 1964.

Ideally suited to host the ultimate exclusive use gathering, whether it be for a special family occasion or corporate event, Kinross House offers 14 bedrooms and The Coach House (an exquisitely converted stable block) provides a further 10 bedrooms. The Coach House also includes a very charming boutique Day Spa and picturesque courtyard garden complete with doocot and a walled kitchen garden.

Visitors from across the globe now have the opportunity to enjoy this unique experience. The experienced onsite team at Kinross House can assist with arranging a whole range of different activities to suit guests, from golf outings, whisky tastings or outdoor pursuits, to fishing and boating on Loch Leven and helicopter rides!

Hotel Amenities at Luxury Scotland Hotels

What differentiates any luxury hotel from a special luxury hotel? The difference is in the attention to detail. From bedrooms, bathrooms and public rooms to the service – every little detail adds to the guest experience and makes a simple overnight stay into a truly memorable Luxury Break.

At Luxury Scotland our hotels go the extra mile to make sure their in-room amenities and toiletries reflect their concept of luxury.
