Gleneagles set to open luxury townhouse with rooftop bar and members club in former Bank of Scotland at St Andrew Square
A world famous Scottish hotel is set to open a luxury townhouse in the heart of Edinburgh in Autumn 2021.
The esteemed sporting and country estate is launching its first ever city outpost at 37-39 St Andrew Square, originally home to the British Linen Company which later became the Bank of Scotland.
With outstanding architectural features designed by notable architects and sculptors such as David Bryce & Alexander Handyside Ritchie, the iconic building is being reimagined to become ‘Gleneagles Townhouse’.
The new townhouse will boast 33 exquisitely designed bedrooms, each one unique and designed to imbue a sense of understated luxury with an appreciative nod to the heritage of the building.
Also on the premise will be a vibrant all-day restaurant perfect for breakfasts, long lazy lunches and spirited dinners as well as two striking bars, including a rooftop terrace where guests will enjoy extraordinary views over the city, previously only held by the rooftop statues.
Gleneagles Townhouse will also be home to an exclusive members club – a community with a passion for exchanging ideas, discovering new obsessions, collaborating together and simply having fun, with access to exclusive private spaces and on-site gym and wellness.
The five-star golf resort in Auchterarder has held five AA Red Stars since 1986 and has been named the best golf resort in the world by Ultratravel Magazine six times between 2012 and 2017.
The hotel has three golf courses which have hosted the likes of The Ryder Cup, Solheim Cup, European Golf Team Championships and the Scottish Open.
Additionally, the British School of Falconry has been located at Gleneagles since 1992.
