Planning consent has been given for a 500 acres golf resort near Edinburgh which will include a 240 bedroom luxury resort hotel. The golf course will be designed in conjunction with Sandy Lyle who says the development has potential to rival any in Scotland.
The developers say Scotland is a favourite with international conference organisers but is limited in what it has to offer in terms of convention space. While Scotland enjoys a good level of corporate visitors, larger global companies looking to accommodate 200 or more delegates under one roof are limited in choice. Edinburgh Airport is less than 30 minutes drive from the site, another factor in attracting international visitors.
Alexandra Hayward of Debutesq Group which is handling international sales says, “Scotland is crying out for a resort hotel with conference and leisure facilities on a grand scale and this development will help the country compete better internationally.”
