It is hard not to be bewitched by Edinburgh, with its picturesque medieval castle, dramatic and endlessly sprawling terrain, and the jewel toned sea lapping at its edges. After a four-hour train journey from London, winding through acres and acres of beautiful scenery, we arrived at Edinburgh Waverly station and set off on the short walk to our hotel for the weekend, the beautiful and newly opened Gleneagles Townhouse, Edinburgh.
The most exciting and highly anticipated new luxury hotel in Edinburgh, Gleneagles Townhouse occupies a rather special spot in; not only is it ideally situated overlooking St. Andrew Square, but it’s also located in the building that was once home to the British Linen Bank, and later, the Bank of Scotland. A sister property to the original Gleneagles, located on 850 dreamy acres in Perthshire, is quite possibly the most famous hotel in Scotland. The sprawling property is known for its luxurious spa, award-winning golf course, Michelin-star restaurant and plethora of all the outdoor pursuits one would expect from an opulent hotel in the Scottish Highlands.
