Those looking for an alternative ski experience within the UK this winter can now channel their adventurous spirit in Scotland’s most beautiful valley, the Strathearn, with Gleneagles’ new Strathearn ‘Valley Pass’ – a two-night experience that celebrates the thrill of the great outdoors, the glamour of decadent dining and beautiful snowy Scottish landscapes.
On their first day, guests will be whisked away by helicopter to the slopes of the country’s largest ski resort, Glen Shee or the Ben Nevis Range, to carve the pistes – before being transported back through the hills, aboard one of Gleneagles’ bespoke Defenders.
During their stay, guests will also head out on a guided mountain hike through the Ochil Hills fuelled by a delicious picnic lunch served from the back of the Defender, complete with log burner and hot toddies on stand-by to keep the chills at bay. After a day of brisk activities, guests will return to Gleneagles to indulge in a decadent dinner in The Strathearn restaurant. Valley Pass Holders will also have complimentary access to range of country pursuits on the 850-acre estate – from cycling through the local countryside, casting fishing flies at Laich Loch, horse-riding on cross-country trails, to zip-wiring through trees, cracking clays and shooting arrows at the shooting range.
The Strathearn ‘Valley Pass’ at Gleneagles is available from Sunday – Thursday and priced from £2,895 per room for two nights, based on two sharing an Estate room on a B&B basis, available from 3rd January until 25th February. Optional helicopter and defender transportation priced on request.
