Edinburgh -The Bonham
The Bonham is a luxury boutique hotel situated in the West End of Edinburgh. Set in a quiet residential crescent surrounded by the stunning backdrop of this magnificent capital city, The Bonham is without a doubt one of the most stylish hotels in Edinburgh.

Fort William – Corriegour Lodge Hotel,
Situated in one of the most beautiful sections of the Great Glen in the Highlands of Scotland – between Spean Bridge and Loch Ness – is the Highland retreat you’ve been looking for. Make the most of the private lochside beach, complete with jetty, or simply stroll in the extensive gardens and enjoy superb Scottish cuisine in the award-winning Loch View Hotel Restaurant. Round off your day with a fine malt whisky beside a cozy log fire in the residents’ lounge.

Isle of Skye – Skeabost House Hotel
Lovingly restored and stunningly refurbished, this iconic hotel is an idyllic retreat in a jaw-dropping location on one of the world’s favorite islands. Steeped in history, Skeabost is a boutique hotel owned and run by Anne Gracie and Ken Gunn whose accolades include Scottish Hoteliers of the Year and a Gold Laurel as two of Scotland’s ‘most visionary entrepreneurs. The River Snizort runs through the grounds. The hotel is situated in 23 acres of woodland on the edge of a loch, with views out to sea
and crofting hamlets.

Aberdeen –  Norwood Hall
A country house hotel 10 minutes’ drive from Aberdeen city center, Norwood Hall features log fires, wooded grounds, and secluded gardens. Norwood Hall was built in 1881 on the site of the 15th Century Pitfodels Castle and retains many of its original Victorian features including sweeping staircases and colonnaded entrances.

East Lothian – Cringletie Estate
A former Scottish Baronial home, Cringletie is located near Peebles on the Scottish Borders. This is a unique house with very special architecture and each bedroom has its own size, shape, and characteristics, from romantic turrets to feature fireplaces. No two rooms are the same, but all have been individually styled to reflect the character and charm of the house, and all offer wonderful views of the gardens or grounds and rolling hills beyond. The hotel is set on 28-acre grounds where guests can enjoy a woodland walk or a stroll through our beautiful walled gardens.
