CAMERON HOUSE GRADUATE PROGRAMMES
A unique opportunity to join our team as one of our Cameron House Graduate Managers in 2022.
Though a short drive from Glasgow, Cameron House feels a million miles away from everyday life. Set in 400 acres of beautiful Scottish countryside, it's considered one of the country's finest 5-star luxury resorts.
Following an extraordinary restoration to the historical 17th century Baronial mansion, Cameron House Hotel has re-opened, offering 140 beautiful bedrooms and 24 spectacular suites. Home to 115 luxury lodges, a world-class spa with rooftop infinity pool, 18-hole championship golf course, a range of impressive restaurants and bars, a new state-of-the-art Leisure Club, 124 berth marina, and a choice of exhilarating and relaxing outdoor activities.
For meetings and conferences, Cameron House provides a flexible choice of seven function spaces in a truly memorable setting, while our extensive corporate offering also includes a range of team-building and social activities.
The romantic setting of Loch Lomond also makes Cameron House the perfect place for spectacular weddings. We can tailor bespoke wedding for guests, from intimate celebrations and larger events for up to 400 guests, or anything in between.
Add all the above together, and we have something very special; all that's missing could be you.
