Cromlix and St Andrews in the spotlight

It's that time of year again, when tennis fans are glued to their televisions to see if Andy Murray can win a second Wimbledon title.

The 28-year-old from Dunblane is still in the hunt for a second crown at SW19. Last year, the Scottish superstar reopened Cromlix, a luxury 15-bedroom country house hotel in Perthshire. The venue, which has received five stars from VisitScotland’s Quality Assurance Scheme, provides a rural setting for exclusive boardroom meetings and corporate away days.

With public rooms on the ground floor and the Library and Study on the first floor of the house, Cromlix provides flexible, elegant spaces that can be set up to suit various requirements. But no sooner will Wimbledon have wrapped up for another year than the sporting world turns its attention to St Andrews. 

The historic Fife town is once again playing host to the Open Championship, which will see the world’s greatest golfers battle it out for golf’s oldest major and the famous Claret Jug.

Taking place from 16-19 July, more than 200,000 spectators will descend on "the Kingdom" for the event, with hundreds of millions more watching around the world.

Once again, St Andrews’ range of luxury hotels and venues will be in the spotlight, including the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa and the Fairmont, both of which offer extensive conference and incentive facilities.
