A variety of images depicting the history of an illustrious Perthshire hotel have been collated to celebrate its 90th anniversary.
Gleneagles Hotel, which is also steeped in golfing history, made a public appeal for memorabilia to mark the occasion and were inundated by donations from former staff and guests from around the world.
Photographs from when the hotel first opened its doors, on June 6, 1924, up to the present day, can now be viewed on a dedicated website.
One panoramic image shows one of the earliest golf tournaments being played at the adjacent course, which has since became one of the sport’s leading venues. Gleneagles will host the Ryder Cup in September.
Also on show online is a reminder of the role of the hotel during World War II, when it was closed to guests and became a military hospital.
Numerous well-known faces have graced both the golf course and the hotel over the last 90 years, including superstars of screen and stage.
One group of guests from 1993 picture includes Formula One champion Jackie Stewart, movie star Sean Connery, and golf legend Jack Nicklaus.
Managing director at Gleneagles, Patrick Elsmie, said: “Over the years, we’ve been very fortunate to have witnessed some truly extraordinary events at Gleneagles, from the signing of an anti-apartheid agreement at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Conference in 1977, to The Queen’s visit during the G8 Summit in 2005.
“The archive also gives an insight into the evolution of Scottish tourism and stands as a tribute to the many thousands of people who have passed through our doors over the years.”
