Gleneagles Hotel is a luxury hotel near Auchterarder, Perth and Kinross. The hotel, which opened in 1924, was built by the former Caledonian Railway Company which also built the nearby Gleneagles railway station. The hotel itself once had its own dedicated railway branch line.
Between 1982 and 1986, £11 million was spent on renovation and since 1982 the hotel has been open all year round. In 1986, and every year since, the hotel has been awarded five red stars by the AA. The hotel was owned for 31 years by the international alcoholic beverage firm Diageo, until it was sold to a private investment company Ennismore in 2015.
The hotel was redeveloped in preparation for hosting the 40th Ryder Cup Matches in 2014 played on the PGA Centenary Course.
