Gleneagles’ Townhouse is a luxury city hotel, with an all-day restaurant, roof terrace and private members’ club with incredible city views. Situated in St. Andrew Square – one of Edinburgh’s most iconic Georgian squares – created in the 1760s, and designed by well known Scottish architect, James Craig. Within a few years of completion, St Andrew Square became one of the most desirable and most fashionable residential areas in the city.
An impressive building with six towering Corinthian columns located in historic Edinburgh, the former British Linen Bank makes quite an impression in a city known for it’s architectural flavor. With a style that harkens back to Roman-times, the property is flanked by six columns that elevate into six statues designed by A. Handyside Ritchie; representing Navigation, Commerce, Manufacture, Science, Art and Agriculture.
