Scotland House, a welcoming home from home for visiting supporters to watch the action and celebrate Team Scotland’s sporting success, officially opened its doors with two days until the Games begin.
It will also host a range of events linked to the Games, as well as hosting team press conferences and post-competition media activity. Importantly it also provides a tranquil space for athletes and their families and friends to meet in private and relax; before and after competition.
Paul Bush OBE, Chair of Commonwealth Games Scotland said: “With Scotland House now officially open, we will look forward to welcoming hundreds of athletes, friends, family and team supporters here over the next two weeks.
“As always, we have strived to make Scotland House look like a slice of home, using our team logos and branding; all of which have an authentic local feel. It’s the first thing you see when you walk through the door and I am sure we will all agree how impactful it is. A huge thank you to the Scottish Government in understanding the value of Scotland House and continuing to support us in its delivery.”
Scotland House will open daily until Sunday 15 April and is being run in conjunction with EventScotland and VisitScotland. There will be an information desk open from 0800hrs to 0930hrs, with Scotland House being fully open from 1000hrs to 2300hrs and later on some evenings where required.
The hotel is close to a G:Link tram stop at Cypress Avenue, only 100m away. This goes to the Athletes’ Village via a number of Games venues at Broadwater Parklands (Triathlon and Marathon) and Southport (Swimming) or in the opposite direction down to Broadbeach (Lawn Bowls, Netball Preliminaries and the Main Media Centre). Trams will run 24 hours during the Games and can be accessed free of charge with a Games accreditation or event ticket.
