A world apart from its chic city counterparts, the Carnegie Club at Skibo Castle is a vast country estate set on 8,000 acres in the Scottish Highlands. Named for Andrew Carnegie, who restored the estate for his grand summer residence, the property has been meticulously refurbished and preserved. The castle’s 21 guestrooms or 11 freestanding lodges give guests a home away from home for classic country holidays filled with horseback riding, shooting, fishing, swimming, tennis, and golf.
Membership: Joining fee of about $31,670, plus an annual membership charge of about $10,134. (carnegieclub.co.uk)
