Inverlochy Castle Management International (ICMI) is celebrating the award of one of the world’s most prestigious hotel rankings.

The ranking adds to an impressive roster of awards for the bespoke hotel management and consultancy company – which was founded by the senior management team at Inverlochy Castle and today manages some of Scotland’s most exclusive luxury properties.


The annual Travel & Leisure World’s Best Awards ranked the company’s Inverlochy Castle in Fort William as second in Europe and fourth in the world, cementing the property’s position as Scotland's most renowned small luxury hotel.




Norbert Lieder, managing director of ICMI, said: “We are extremely proud to be bestowed this honour from the readers of Travel & Leisure magazine around the world. To rank among the pinnacle of hotels globally represents a true hallmark of luxury, standards upheld by the remarkable teams across every hotel in the ICMI portfolio. 


“In each of the 14 properties we represent, we strive to give our guests a bespoke experience that they won’t find anywhere else. Whether that be dining in a 3 AA Rosette restaurant, treating your dog to a specially designed menu or staying on a private island. My warmest congratulations to everyone involved in achieving this incredible feat.”




Earlier this year, ICMI’s Cromlix Hotel in Dunblane received a Gold Star rating by VisitScotland, highlighting excellence in all aspects of hospitality – one of only two Five Star Gold County House Hotels in the region. 


It also comes as the company prepares to launch its first oversees venture in the Caribbean – The Liming – which will bring ICMI’s management experience to exclusive properties across the islands, with The Liming Bequia due to open in November.


To make the ranking on Travel & Leisure’s annual World’s Best Awards, hotels must act as incredible ambassadors for their home countries, delivering intuitive service and luxury experiences that result in a unique holiday experience.
