Connoisseurs Scotland adds two new exceptional properties to their collection of luxe lodgings.
Known for its distinctive dress, misty landscapes, heather-clad moorlands, chiming bagpipes and world-renowned whiskey, Scotland calls for anyone seeking adventure, steeped in a rich cultural history. Spend your days playing golf or lounging in the emerald countryside, and your evenings around the fireplace with a fine malt or enjoying Scotland’s breathtaking West Coast sunsets.
Connoisseurs Scotland boasts an eclectic collection of 25 properties, which encompass four of the world’s finest golf resorts, including Gleneagles and Old Course. Two new coastal lodgings have been added to the already lavish line-up of accommodations from Connoisseurs Scotland, and in the month of October, they are offering some intriguing deals for golfers and anyone who wants to explore the bucolic woodlands and compelling coastline.
A cozy nest in Scotland’s northern Highlands, Inver Lodge is the perfect haven for birders, anglers and those who appreciate a good nature stroll in Scottish Highlands. The 20-room hotel overlooks the quaint fishing village of Lochinver and the clear loch waters, home to Atlantic seals and sea trout. The Inver river, rife with wild brownies, is ideal for fly-fishing. Abundant salmon can be caught nearby or savored at the property’s restaurant Chez Roux, helmed by renowned French chef Albert Roux. His Scottish cuisine features fresh local ingredients, Scottish beef and treasures pulled directly from the sea. After a long day of bird-watching, stag hunting and coastline exploring, guests are welcomed back with a warm fire and regional malt whiskey. This October, choose from one of 22 brightly colored rooms and relax into the rustic scenery as they are featuring a ‘Dinner, Bed & Breakfast’ special for only $199 per person, double occupancy.
Blanefield Luxury Country House
If a game of golf at one of Scotland’s finest courses or a stroll through the garden sounds appealing, then the Blanefield Luxury Country House may be the right escape. This elegant six-bedroom estate with its library, drawing room, and great hall, proves perfect for family or company get-togethers. Set amidst the woodlands, fields and waterfalls, guests can partake in field sports like pheasant shoots, grouse moors and salmon fishing. Several nearby [yachting] marinas offer spectacular sailing in the Firth of Clyde. Not to mention, three miles away you’ll fine Scotland’s uber famous Turnberry Golf Course. Known to be one of the best courses in the world, Turnberry hosted the 1994 and 2009 Open Championships, and continues to be one of the most aesthetically magnificent and historical courses played today.
