The pleasure you get after a long day golfing in Perthshire, as you slip into 800 thread count sheets. Rain lashing the window panes as you relax back into feather pillows, warm from a luxurious soak in a claw foot bathtub.
After an afternoon discovering the unsavoury past, that lurks under the Royal Mile in Mary King’s Close. Imagine relaxing in the sumptuous pleasure of your suite. The wood fire, the flames licking the crackling logs, the smell of the smoke mixing with the scent of single malt whisky before you head out to The Kitchin for the best meal of your life.
There’s nothing quite like a bit of luxury to make a holiday legendary.
If you’re fancying a decadent visit to Scotland this year, I’ve got a couple of picks for you.
There is the incomparable Gleneagles Hotel, for regal five star luxury in Perthshire if you love luxury with a side of golf and pampering.
Or the sumptuous splendour of the Witchery by the Castle in Edinburgh, an indulgent experience like no other.
Or the De Vere Cameron in on the shores of Loch Lomond, surrounded by nature and decadence.
