This year the Scottish hotel group has launched its autumn/winter campaign with an ‘embrace the rain’ message – encouraging holidaymakers to continue to visit Scotland and offering recommendations on how to enjoy their stay during the winter months from where the best walks are on the crisp frosty mornings, to access to the best ski and snowboard runs in Scotland.

The Scottish-inspired campaign, which was recently shortlisted at the prestigious Cateys Awards 2022, is inviting guests to make the most of Scotland’s great outdoors before returning to one of the seven stunning properties to ‘coorie’ in by the roaring log fires and in the many newly upgraded thermal spas.
