Exploring Gleneagles Resort

11.04.16

As a resort Gleneagles is famous – and award-winning – for its golf courses, dining experiences and spa, but the estate setting allows for many more country pursuits. By Serena Templeton

The verdant fairways of Gleneagles are a welcoming sight to golf fans from around the world. But that doesn’t mean outdoor pursuits are limited to the pristine fairways, because when it comes to things to do - the resort is a treasure trove of family fun and outdoor adventure.

Open to everyone from crack-shots to those who are new to the sport, the legendary Shooting School’s world-class facilities make this sport one of the estate’s most popular activities with a range of options – including Clay Pigeon, Air Rifles, Archery and full stalking and shooting breaks.

A legacy from the days of countryside hunts, the hotel has always had kennels and gun dogs. Today, Gleneagles boasts a prestigious Gundog School where visitors have the opportunity to work with a very affable group of sleek Labradors – learning how to make the most of their agility, incorporating obedience and handling.

Gleneagles' trout lochs provide the finest fishing for the expert seeking to extend their range or for a wonderful introduction to the sport. Ghillies provide a fisherman's knowledge of the water, some wry local humour as well as advice on the best tackle, flies and strategies for an unforgettable experience. Skilled ghillies also share their unrivalled knowledge with novice and experienced anglers who can enjoy their sport on six lochs in the vicinity of the estate; all stocked with brown and rainbow trout. Your catch can be cooked by the chef for a celebratory meal, or chilled and vacuum packed to take home.

Being surrounded by moors, hillside and forested areas also lends to spectacular opportunities for Wildlife Photography, and the winding rivers are perfect for a spot of laid back fishing. Closer to the hotel guests can enjoy Falconry classes, bringing this ancient sport to life for a new age – perfect for families as well as more exhilarating Off-Roading courses – both for the estate’s 4x4 Land Rovers and All-Terrain vehicles.
