Perfume making

Possibly one of the most exciting classes held at Glenapp to date has focused on perfumery. Foraging first for ingredients in the gardens before being taught the wonders of making perfume, this experience was once described by a group of seasoned travellers as one of their best travel experiences. Classes can be booked for two hours or half days.

Cookery school

Parties of 2-8 people can book a private cookery school experience with our Executive Chef. He will walk you through the gardens, picking herbs and produce before passing on skills and ideas to allow you to prepare new and magnificent dishes of your own.

Photography and painting courses

With many talented artists and photographers living in the vicinity of Glenapp, we can readily arrange for half or full-day courses on site.

Genealogy and Heraldry

Guests from all over the world marvel at discovering their ancestral roots in Scotland. With new ferry terminals to Ireland only 15 minutes away, Glenapp is a wonderful base from which to dig into your family history, discovering its roots and heraldic symbolism in Ireland and Scotland.

Indoor entertainment

Ranging from pool, chess and bridge, all games form part of the life of a beautiful Scottish home and hotel. For special occasions, we can arrange magicians and caricaturists and, for larger occasions, a whole team of Highland Dancers who will interact with guests and inspire even the most reluctant of visitors to become a Scottish dancer.

Wine tasting

Glenapp benefits from having a number of wine experts at the hotel who will guide you through the wines from our wonderful cellar.
