Gleneagles Townhouse

The Riviera of the Highlands

30 May 2022
Summer Lawn

Gleneagles will transport guests to the Amalfi coast for a slice of the Dolce Vita in the Perthshire countryside this Summer. Our Italian-themed summer lawn invites you to experience pop-up food huts and specially curated drinks menus.

We have revealed a brand-new look for our summer lawn, celebrating the age-old magic of Scotland’s very own Riviera in the Highlands. The transformation is a nod to Gleneagles’ storied history, taking our guests on a journey through old school Europe, and channeling the charm of the Amalfi Coast.

With blue & white deck chairs, an espresso-to-go Ape cart, and newly installed pizza ovens firing up a range of ‘Pizzettes’, the summer lawn will see guests toasting to exciting adventures, all while relaxing in the sunshine with glorious views, and indulging in the opulence, exceptional service and acres of green space that Gleneagles is famous for.

Gin & Tonic or Spritz in hand, choose from an Italian-inspired menu, with all the favourites from last year back again. Served from 12:00 – 17:00 daily, you can get a taste of the seaside in the heart of the highlands through dishes such as scallops with citrus butter, and our infamous Scottish lobster roll. To satisfy a sweet tooth, indulge in treats from the tuck shop – open on weekends and holidays – such as crepes and signature sundaes made with soft serve ice cream.

Summer Lawn drinks and food

At the drinks hut, which is open every day from 12:00 – 18:00, classic British summer drinks are made with Hendrick’s gin, including the new and limited release Hendricks’s Neptunia – “the magic of the sea expressed in gin”. To embrace the Italian theme, a variety of summery Spritz in partnership with Aperol, Campari and Crodino  are on offer, as well as a draught beer setup for refreshing, ice cold glasses of Menabrea lager.

The Glendevon Terrace is the most elegant spot to enjoy a drink, and where Gleneagles has partnered with Moet & Chandon to create a specially curated menu, including a number of vintage champagnes by the glass such as Dom Perignon.
