Say hello to a new Freedom hotel…

27 June 2016

Green Hotel FeaturedThe newest arrival to our travel trade family, the Green Hotel Golf & Leisure Resort in Kinross, offers yet another great location to explore Scotland’s central belt and east coast.

Dating back to the 18th century, the hotel was traditionally a coaching inn, welcoming stagecoaches travelling between Queensferry and Perth. It’s changed quite a bit since then, and now encompasses the more modern Windlestrae Hotel, and facilities including a swimming pool, gym, spa and golf course.

Take a peek at our suggestions for perfect touring spots, all within a short hop, skip and a jump from the Green.

Stirling

Once the capital of Scotland, Stirling is quite literally pouring with history. There’s the Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle, and the battlegrounds of Stirling Bridge and Bannockburn. Just 40 minutes door to door.

Edinburgh

A short trip over the magnificent Forth Road Bride, you can be in Edinburgh city centre within 45 minutes. Explore Scotland’s capital city, or plan a summer tour and experience the biggest arts festival in the world at the Edinburgh International Festival and Edinburgh Royal Military Tattoo – on throughout August.

Perth

Sitting on the banks of the River Tay, and known as the gateway to the Highlands, the fair city of Perth is packed full of history and culture. From age old castles, to a magnificent palace, and glorious gardens, it’s just 15 minutes from our location in the heart of Kinross.

Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park

Beautiful lochs and scenic walks are in abundance at Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Paddle down Loch Katrine in the world famous Steamship Sir Walter Scott, or simply enjoy a drive through awe-inspiring scenery, and plan a wonder through the local and boutique shops in Callander. Less than an hour from Kinross.

Fife coastal villages

Think quaint coastal fishing villages, award winning fish & chips, a world famous university town, plus Scotland’s home of golf, and you’ve got a pretty good picture of Scotland’s east coast. Often overlooked from touring itineraries, we think Fife is a gem, ripe for exploration.
