The Snug


Positioned in the physical heart of the hotel is the cosy Snug — a perennial favourite among regular guests of The Glasshouse as the place to unwind.

Fully renovated in 2018, the new Snug offers our guests the perfect setting to enjoy Scotland’s national drink. With a new and exclusive selection of almost 100 Scotch whiskies, you can enjoy a warming dram by the fireplace, a bespoke cocktail on the roof garden, or you can pair your whisky with one of our premium cigars. For the whisky novice, our experienced team can take you on a journey through Scotland’s world famous whisky regions with our Glasshouse Whisky Map.

Please do not worry if whisky is not your tipple of choice, our expert team of mixologists can also craft you a cocktail from our vast non-whisky collection.

Guests can also enjoy our seasonal, Snug food menu from 12pm to 10:30pm, any day of the week.
