Gleneagles... What is it good for? Absolutely everything!

The Events Raccoon goes Scottish

Having just returned from a hosted trip to Gleneagles I must say the first thing it is good for, by far, is delivering the five-star experience. From the moment we were met in the arrivals lounge by the hotels representatives, the head of guest relations lead us to our one hour coach transfer from Edinburgh airport to Gleneagles. As we made our way out of Edinburgh and into the rolling countryside she explained some of the remarkable landmarks that we were passing. From the famous Braveheart film to the more recent shooting of Trainspotting 2, Castles and stately homes that could be hired for private events and even some insider knowledge of the home of the one and only Andy Murray. It's safe to say an hour quickly passed through this scenery.

It's safe to say an hour quickly passed through this scenery.

Arriving at Gleneagles it had a covering of snow, we were straight to our private check in. Hot apple juice and freshly made cakes were waiting and two therapists from the SPA were in position to deliver hand massages while we checked in. Once in the room, complete with an open roaring fire, a bed big enough to fit five people and a balcony with a view over the mountains it was safe to say this is somewhere I would be more than happy to bring my customers too. With the sun breaking through the clouds I was understanding how this place got its nickname 'the playground of the gods'. Time to explore the grounds!

Pre-dinner drinks that evening was in the recently opened American Bar that quite frankly is one of the most stunning, boutique cocktail bars I have visited, boasting an impressive selection of gins, whiskeys, and 'Lulu' the mixologist. Serving The Welcome Stranger, a cocktail that contains an ingredient called Swedish punch that is no longer available to buy, Lulu makes this herself using her very own secret recipe. Split between the two rooms, our numbers of 30 worked perfectly as the champagne and canapes flowed.

I've been called to dinner by many a fashion but to follow a Scottish piper through the Hotel was a lovely touch, he led us into the Glendevon room where we found our seats as he continued to play. Fantastic! He was only upstaged by the addressing of the haggis that followed and it became clear we were in for a true Scottish experience. Just as dinner was closing our experience was far from over as we were lead to the front steps of the hotel, handed big woollen blankets and stood staring into the dark.......

From nowhere, a spot light lit up the grounds ahead of us and a fleet of bagpipes fired up somewhere in the distance. Within moments, ten or so pipers appeared through the mist and snow and we were blessed with our private display of three incredible performances. Back into the warm, and it was time for a nightcap in the Century bar before bed and the close of Day one.

Day two had some big boots to fill and it certainly didn't fail. It began with a tour of the impressive SPA with some 20 treatment rooms, the Spa at Gleneagles by ESPA offers an extensive menu of traditional therapies as well as complementary and alternative wellness treatments.

Next up, The British School of Falconry and Gundog School demonstration. The very impressive Fatima, a golden eagle with a wing span of almost 8feet and then her smaller siblings came out as we all had the chance to fly these impressive birds, the gundogs who are trained to an unbelievable level understanding orders such as; fetch - leave - find - not that one - bring - drop.....it puts even the best of us dog owners to shame!

The Equestrian School and Arena was a chance for us to ride in one of the most impressive riding schools in the UK, a tour of the stables and chance to meet the 26 horses (and two Shetland ponies) that guests from as young as three years old could ride and experience.

The Gleneagles Arena is 2,500 square meters of flexible space that can be transformed to host dinner parties, car launches, conferences, exhibitions, sporting events.... wherever your imagination can take you, this space can meet you there and deliver.

As the day continued with Segway’s, archery, clay pigeon and air rifle shooting, it was becoming difficult to picture what couldn't be done here and that's without touching the fishing, off road driving and golf! For many, golf is what Gleneagles is known for as we headed over the PGA course, past The Kings and The Queens courses, it was time for us to try our hand with the professionals on the driving range.

If golf isn't your thing, then how about booking the Blue Bar; an opulent showcase for the velvety-smooth Johnnie Walker Blue Label whisky. With heated leather sofas, luxurious throws, a large circular fire pit and a wide selection of Cuban cigars perfect for around 30 guests.

If your programme does insist on a little more conference and maybe a little less country pursuits, then Gleneagles is more than equipped for that too. The Ballroom taking 190 for a dinner with a sprung dance floor and The Gleneagles Suite for up to 280 guests theatre style means that choices are plenty for meetings. And that is without looking at the Cellar for a private dinner and tasting, the Glenmore with stunning views over the grounds or the Andrew Fairlie, simply the best restaurant in Scotland, and the only one in the country to hold two Michelin stars. With 236 bedrooms to choose from, the playground of the gods allows for that ‘work hard, play hard’ balance.

It's very safe to say my experience with Gleneagles is one I will not forget keeping them at the front of my mind for an incentive, corporate event, VIP hospitality or team build experience. Only one challenge - when can I go back??
