Gleneagles takes to the sky

2014 07 Vbf One

To celebrate its 90th anniversary, Gleneagles Hotel is offering guests the chance to take in its beautiful scenery in a unique way: by hot air balloon.

The hotel has signed an exclusive partnership with Virgin Balloon Flights and is now the only Scottish hotel to offer guests the chance to explore the stunning Scottish landscape from the sky.

As you float round in your very own balloon you can take in all the sights this year’s Ryder Cup venue has to offer. And there’s plenty.

In all the Perthshire estate encompasses 850 acres, including three championship golf courses, The Kings, The Queens and the PGA Centenary, where Team Europe will face off against Team USA this September. You can pass your notes onto Paul McGinley afterwards.

A tip above the clouds at the resort will cost you £2,100. Journeys can be taken at sunrise or sunset, accommodating between 10-16 guests. Offer is subject to availability.
