COUNTRY sport enthusiasts are being offered the unique opportunity to relax in three of Scotland’s stunning luxury venues following the launch of an exclusive partnership.
The Perth-based land management company, Bell Ingram, which has around 500,000 hectares under management within its portfolio, has partnered with Amazing Retreats to offer clients the opportunity to stay in one of their most unusual and unique luxury venues.
The Bell Ingram sporting lets team, comprising keen sporting and land management experts, headed by land agent Charlotte Gilfillan, will work with Amazing Retreats, who offer a portfolio of iconic properties in spectacular locations for special occasions.
Charlotte Gilfillan, Bell Ingram’s Sporting Estates manager, said: “We are extremely well established in sporting estate management offering sport to let since 1899 and this is the perfect chance to offer our clients something truly different.
“Amazing Retreats will offer sporting enthusiasts the exclusive use of Kinnettles Castle, Carberry Tower or Ackergill Tower-all perfect venues to relax in after a day exploring our estates.
“Each of the historic properties has something really special to offer. Guests can take in the panoramic views of the rolling countryside surrounding Kinnettles Castle, or explore the fascinating history of Carberry Tower and the very fact that Ackergill Tower is one of the most sought after retreats in the world, speaks for itself.”
Amazing Retreats place an emphasis on respecting the history and culture of the environment and understand that their collection of beautiful houses, castles, abbeys and stately homes play an important role in both local and national heritage.
Charlotte added: “The opportunity to hire an Amazing Retreat-whether it be for a special celebration, family get-together or an annual reunion party- is an experience only a few will have every year.
“Guests can relax knowing any requests they may have will be met with the highest standards. Top house chefs will be on hand to offer a fine dining experience which they can enjoy in private. The basic premise of their stay is that whatever they want, they can have.
“Our passion for providing our clients with a top quality service is hugely important to both us and Amazing Retreats so we are extremely excited about the new partnership and hearing about our client’s experiences.”
Simon Downes, from Amazing Retreats said: “I am absolutely delighted to be in partnership with Bell Ingram. It’s an exciting opportunity for us with them being one of Scotland’s premier sporting agents to provide our clients with an exclusive experience.
“The interiors of our luxury venues are beautifully decorated and the surrounding grounds offer guests the opportunity to relax or partake in outdoor sport activities with Kinnettles Castle and Ackergill Tower having the facilities for on-site practice shooting.
“Our venues are not shy of having celebrity guests with Lorraine Kelly, Sir Tom Hunter and Wayne Rooney enjoying their stay with Amazing Retreats and we hope we can offer the same experience for all our clients.”
