Is it too soon to be thinking about Christmas? Given that it’s only July, not a bit of it, why not treat you and yours and join the festive fun at Gleneagles Hotel this Christmas, set in dazzling Perthshire countryside surroundings. Gleneagles boasts an indulgent and magical Christmas or New Year break.

Fun Christmas activities for the whole family…


A full day of activities on Christmas Eve, means guests can enjoy ceramic classes, air rifle shooting, golf swing tutorials and more while the little ones can own a pony for the afternoon. Little guests will get one last chance to post their letters to Santa as his elves stop by in the afternoon before hitting the ice rink to watch the professionals don their skates for a stunning performance. Cocktails and fireworks top off the evening before Christmas Eve dinner and late night music in the bar.

On Christmas morning, young guests will welcome Santa as he arrives at the hotel and follow him through to the magical Grotto where some presents await.
