To chime with the start of autumn at the hotel, the Gleneagles Enchanted Forest bar - in collaboration with The Dalmore - is a woodland wonderland experience for all the senses.

Set to replace the summer season Tropical Bar, located next to the Garden Café, the Enchanted Forest is described as a 'whimsical drinking experience' for groups of two or four.

Replicating the sights, sounds and smells of a real-life enchanted forest, the new-look pop-up features fir tree lined walls, lantern lit tables and hidden woodland nooks.

Guests can choose from a menu of five specially created whisky cocktails based on the essence of the surrounding forest in rural Perthshire, as well as an exclusive The Dalmore pairing experience.

The experience will take guests on a whisky journey to discover the art of distilling and the importance of using hand selected casks from the world’s finest bodegas and wineries.

Each 25ml dram has been paired with 35ml of the sherry, port or fortified wine which seasoned the cask in which the whisky was left to mature, giving the drinker a full-circle experience.

The Enchanted Forest will be open to residents and non-residents, from 5:30pm to 10:30pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.

The Dalmore hour-long pairing experience must be booked in advance and a £10 deposit will be required to confirm the booking due limited spaces available.
