Club La Costa Members Blog

Scotland is a top destination for many holidaymakers due to its stunning scenery, lively cities and wealth of history. CLC Duchally Country Estate is located in 27 acres of gorgeous grounds at the Gateway to the Scottish Highlands, yet only an hour or so from Edinburgh, Glasgow and St. Andrews, whilst Perth is a mere 25 minutes away.

We take a look at why CLC Duchally Country Estate is so popular with CLC World Members and guests.


Whether you’re travelling with the whole family or for a couple’s break away, Duchally has the accommodation to suit. From well-appointed, elegant hotel rooms for up to two people, and comfortable, contemporary lodges that range from 1 to 3 bedrooms, you can configure your holidays to suit all family sizes.

All lodges come with fitted kitchens for the ease of self-catering, but with the hotel’s restaurant only a stone’s throw away, you have the pleasure of choice!


Duchally is at the heart of Scotland’s prestigious golf location with a choice of courses to suit all abilities. The world-famous Gleneagles is just a badly hit tee-shot away from Duchally, while Turnberry, Muirfield and Carnoustie are easily accessible.

Duchally’s Reception team will be able to advise on the nearest courses, some of which offer a discount for Duchally guests, and arrange transport and tee times. After your round of golf, you can head for Duchally’s own 19th hole and choose from one of over 50 varieties of Scotch or our very own Gatehouse Gin.


If you like to wake up to the sound of birds in the trees and the sight of a red squirrel bounding through the trees, then Duchally is the holiday destination for you.

You can continue your relaxing time with a soak in the Jacuzzi or a soothing massage at the onsite Spa and Gym. Have leisurely meals in your private lodge, or enjoy the hotel’s superb menu from its award-winning Monteaths restaurant.


VisitScotland recognises the quality and local provenance of Duchally’s Monteaths Restaurant’s tasty menu of locally-sourced meat, fish and vegetables, with its “Taste our Best” award. The Perthshire Breakfast is a perfect example, where at least 50% of the produce every morning comes from the region.

At Duchally, they like to give a twist to regional flavours with starters such as haggis pakora, while also maintaining traditional dishes including smoked salmon, roast lamb and a selection of Scottish cheeses.


For Scotch aficionados Duchally’s Whisky Bar, recognised as an official Whisky Embassy by the Scotland Whisky scheme, is heaven on earth. Choose from over 50 different varieties and enjoy tasting nights led by our Master Taster.

If gin is more your thing, Duchally has that covered! Gatehouse Gin is produced in the estate’s very own gin distillery, with botanicals from the grounds and local sources. Enjoy a gin aperitif before dinner, or have a special gin break with tastings and distillery tour.


Want to clear the cobwebs with bracing walks and clean, clear air? Keen to discover more about Scotland’s history and culture? Or simply happy to unwind in beautiful surroundings? Whatever your holiday choice, Duchally is in the perfect location to offer visitors the key to their perfect stay.
