Luxury Scotland Newsletter – March 2018

LUXURY SCOTLAND March Newsletter

This month I am delighted to bring you details of a quite remarkable development set to enhance Edinburgh’s luxury hotel market in 2018.

‘Fingal’ is a former Northern Lighthouse Board ship now being transformed through a £3.5m investment into Edinburgh’s first stunning floating hotel with stylish accommodation and ‘best in class’ customer service.

Berthed in Edinburgh’s historic Port of Leith and neighbour to the famous Royal Yacht Britannia, accommodation on board ‘Fingal’ includes a spectacular ballroom, 23 luxury cabins and first class venue facilities. With such a ideal waterside location and only minutes from the heart of Scotland’s historic capital city, ‘Fingal’ promises a unique guest experience.

Elsewhere in Luxury Scotland, we have several exciting news items including the enhanced Kohler Waters Spa which opens at St Andrews Old Course Hotel after an extensive multi-million pound refurbishment, the first Gin Weekend at Knockinaam Lodge, an Early Bird ‘Summer’ Offer from Airds Hotel and an exciting 3 Course Golf Experience in Aberdeenshire featuring three world class Scottish links golf courses

With Spring just around the corner we hope we can entice you to savour some of the special promotions from our Luxury Scotland hotels.

Wishing you an enjoyable time during March.

Jeremy and Chico
