While many have provided cover to dining areas, Meldrum House Country Hotel is taking advantage of its stunning natural environment to provide an all year round high comfort option for its guests.

Today sees the launch of its luxury domes that will make the most of Scotland’s long summer nights as well as the changing seasons throughout the year. Diners will enjoy high quality food in a unique setting under the stars.

The Viking domes have been named after the stars in the sky and will have stunning views out across the estate and golf course. Named after the six-star system, Castor will hold up to six guests and the larger dome, named Aurora will hold up to 12. Diners will access the domes from a private door in the hotel, following a lit stone path onto the lawns.

Carefully thought out, the atmospheric domes have wooden flooring and tailor-made furniture decked out with beautiful lantern lamps. A Bluetooth music system is installed in each where you can wire in your own surround sound music choices. Available to hire for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner, the natural environment will create a real wow factor with 360 degree views to the original manor house, the highland cows, golf course and the sky above.

Jordan Charles, general manager at Meldrum House said: “We’ve been working on introducing our new dome private dining concept since lockdown. This is a great way to get people to enjoy the four seasons we have in Scotland but from the comfort of our luxury domes.

"It’s exciting to be able to offer something different for friends and family who would like a gathering in a unique setting. If we see high demand for the domes, we also have the space and ability to add more in the future.”

The hotel re-opens today for the first time after closing back in March and is now taking bookings for the domes.
