A small selection of exceptional venues Jennifer has performed at.
Dating back to the 1300s, Lennoxlove House reflects the myriad of family, political and social influences which have shaped Scottish history. Coupled with many period features, including ornate cornicing and marble features, this makes Lennoxlove House truly one of a kind and indeed a superb Scottish wedding venue, corporate event or conference venue or simply a great escape for a luxury short break.
Lennoxlove House gains its name from Frances Theresa Stewart, the Duchess of Lennox and Richmond, who bequeathed the House to her nephew Lord Blantyre, with the dedication that it should be known as “Lennox’s Love to Blantyre.”
Mar Hall is a luxury five-star golf & spa resort located within a tranquil 240 acre woodland estate just 10 minutes from Glasgow International Airport. It combines 53 individual bedrooms, a championship golf course and the only Aveda Destination Spa in the UK, with extensive dining, wedding, conference and banqueting facilities.
The centrepiece of Mar Hall is a baronial mansion that was completed in the 1840s yet retains many original features. Overlooking the River Clyde, this grand private residence enjoys views towards the Kilpatrick Hills.
Once a grand shooting lodge, The Torridon enjoys one of the most impressive coastal positions in the Scottish Highlands. The building has been lovingly restored to its original splendour, and the 19 bedrooms are all individually designed with fine furnishings and fabrics, decorated to ensure the utmost in comfort and luxury. Many have fantastic views across the loch to the mountains.
The kitchen prides itself on tradition. Award-winning chef Jason ‘Bruno’ Birkbeck produces excellent menus and is highly commended by some of the top cookery writers in the world. He transforms fresh, local produce into simple yet delicious dishes, earning The Torridon 3 rosettes from the AA in 2011.
The House was originally a modest 17th century manor house on the estates of the Earl of Moray, one of Scotland’s most ancient families who married into the Royal Family when an early ancestor became the husband of Christian, the sister of Robert the Bruce. Another Earl was regent of Scotland during the childhoods of King James VI and I, the son of Mary Queen of Scotland.
The Roman Camp got its name from the conspicuous earthwork visible across the meadows to the south of the gardens. This is believed to be Roman and there are indeed remains of a Roman Fort at Bochastle to the north of the town.
The Royal Scotsman
A journey on The Royal Scotsman takes you straight to the heart of the Highlands, through landscapes of towering, pine-clad mountains reflected in mirror-still lochs.
