The eyes of the world will be on Perthshire at the end of this month as the Ryder Cup takes place at Gleneagles, just twenty minutes from Fernbank Holiday Cottage.
We are delighted to be welcoming golf enthusiasts from Wales to stay in our cottage for the duration of the competition. It’s not just about the golf though! Some of the biggest names in comedy, TV and radio including James Nesbitt, Edith Bowman and Elaine C Smith have been announced as presenters for the very special Ryder Cup Gala Concert which will take place at The SSE Hydro on 24th September.
The Gala Concert will bring together contemporary music talent including Chic legend Nile Rodgers, Texas, Jake Bugg, Twin Atlantic, Amy MacDonald, Nina Nesbitt, Eddi Reader, Midge Ure, and Danny Wilson on the same stage with Scotland’s leading arts agencies – the Scottish Ballet, Scottish Opera, National Theatre of Scotland and RSNO, who will share a stage for the first time.
A strong feature of the evening will be the presentation of The 2014 Ryder Cup Teams, with the USA and Europe players appearing on stage together for the first time with their captains Paul McGinley and Tom Watson ahead of the epic golf showdown at Gleneagles.
Visit Scotland will also help visitors get the most out of their Ryder Cup experience and provide information on all that Scotland has to offer.
