Luxury Scotland Newsletter – August 2017

The Latest News from Luxury Scotland

This month we have two exciting announcements to make. We are delighted to welcome Lews Castle on the Isle of Lewis as our newest member.

The islands surrounding our coast are an integral part of Scottish life and the Outer Hebrides have a charm and character of their own.

The Isle of Lewis and Lews Castle are easily accessible from the mainland, less than an hour from Glasgow Airport and we are delighted to be able to offer another Luxury Scotland property for you to enjoy.

To mark our 25th Anniversary, a special Connoisseurs Scotland Edition of the famous Monopoly game has been produced and will be available for guests to enjoy in our Luxury Scotland hotels.

As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one newsletter, a host of Scottish golf breaks, luxury short stays, family adventure breaks, autumnal special offers and even festive packages are all listed here in our online News & Offers section.

Whatever you decide to do during August – have a wonderful summer.

Jeremy Hawkings, Chief Executive,
Luxury Scotland.


August sees the unveiling of a unique version of the famous Monopoly Game. The Connoisseurs Scotland Edition of Monopoly will give players the chance to tour Scotland for the hottest hotel properties, buy them, develop them and watch their investments shoot up in value.

The game includes the small gourmet hotels such as Crinan Hotel, Knockinaam Lodge, Airds and Kinloch Lodge, as well as those world-famous destinations of Gleneagles, Trump Turnberry and The Old Course Hotel. All form part of this very exclusive and unique edition of Monopoly.

You could be a winner and play the game in your favourite Luxury Scotland hotel. Twelve lucky people will be receiving one of these Luxury Scotland Editions by simply letting us know where in Scotland they would love to play the game and which famous Scottish people they would like to play with.

Each month, from August through to November, we will give away three of our Limited Edition Games to the most amusing or original suggestions.
