When Gleneagles opened its doors in 1924, it was described as
"a Riviera of the Highlands" and "the eighth wonder
of the world". The Hotel still remains dedicated to
excellence offering a substantial range of activities both
strenuous and relaxing.
Until 1982, the Hotel was only open during the summer months
but after a massive injection of capital the hotel can now be
enjoyed around the year. In 1986, Gleneagles was awarded the
Automobiles Association's supreme accolade of Five Red Stars which
it has retained every year.
The facilities and services are really second to none. In 1993,
the £5.9 million PGA Centenary Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus,
opened to complement the renowned King's and Queen's Courses to
form one of the world's finest golfing venues. In addition, the Hotel offers a superb Health and Beauty Spa and
a wealth of sporting facilities including top-class shooting,
fishing, riding, falconry and off-road driving.
