From mild temperatures to golden foliage to seasonal produce, fall in Scotland is a family traveler’s paradise. And September–November, families at Gleneagles can explore both the property and surrounding region with the Autumn Activity Pass.
The pass offers field archery lessons, an immersive owl experience, evening Moor & Woodland walk and even a stargazing class. Available Sunday–Thursday every week, the pass lets kids (and parents) unlock their inner Robin Hood by the banks of Laich Loch while mastering field archery with Gleneagles’ resident experts. After field archery, families can enjoy hot chocolate and fire-roasted s’mores.
Passholders can then head to The Mews to explore and learn about Scotland’s native owls. During this experience, families have the chance to get up close with these fascinating creatures.
Families opting for the evening Moor & Woodland walk stroll through the countryside and take in the crisp air while witnessing autumnal colors taking over the landscape. Keep an ear out for local owls, too.
As an after-dinner experience, guests can discover their inner Galileo by stargazing on the lawn through the lens of a telescope. Low levels of light pollution in the region allow for optimal views of stars.
The Autumn Adventure & Activity Pass is available Sept. 3–Nov. 30, excluding Oct. 5–31. Passes are approximately $446 (£350) per room per night in November and $631 (£450) per room per night in September and October. The pass includes access to the Inglenook, three dedicated outdoor experiences, a complimentary room upgrade and the renowned Gleneagles Scottish breakfast daily.
