Description: The Killiecrankie Hotel is a friendly family-run hotel 3 miles from Pitlochry, in Highland Perthshire. The location is stunning: the hotel overlooks the Pass of Killiecrankie, a deep, tree-lined river gorge formed by the River Garry cutting its way through the surrounding granite hills. Credentials are plentiful, with three Red Stars & two Rosettes from the AA, Scottish Hotel of the Year from the Good Hotel Guide 2011 and an entry in the Good Food Guide. A daily changing menu provides eg. a salad of smoked Rannoch duck breast with walnuts and orange dressing, then perhaps a delicious whole quail, roasted, boned and stuffed with chicken and red onion mousse. Round things off with the raspberry and frangipane flan with ice cream and a mixed berry compote. A less formal arrangement is also available in The Bar Conservatory

I have been visiting and staying at this hotel since the mid 80's although I have not stayed here since Henrietta Fergusson took it over. We normally eat lunch here three times a year when en route to the House of Bruar. Lunch is a simple affair, with home made soups, fresh fish and well cooked vegetables. There is a... More

We cycled here from Blair Atholl, along the river pathway. Lunch menu is not cheap but quality of food excellent. It's our second visit and I'm sure we'll come again. Recommend the confit of duck and ham salad (our choices). Too full for dessert!

We were lucky enough to have two nights at this wonderful hotel as guests of my mother who was celebrating her 85th birthday. She just wanted all her children (4) and partners and grandchildren (9) and partners together and catered for and we certainly enjoyed that. The food was superb. In particular the seared scallops and the Highland venison. Henrietta... More

Three generations thoroughly enjoyed a delicious Saturday lunch. The menu was extensive and included a good children's section. Our party included an exuberant five year old and three year old and the staff could not have been more helpful. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens. We would highly recommend and hope to return soon.

This is my second review for this restaurant which I feel compelled to provide as our repeated visits serve to reinforce my initial review with continued satisfaction. On our regular trips to and from our cottage in Sutherland we stay overnight half way on the journey in Blair Athol and have on several occasions patronized this most wonderful restaurant. The...

Spent a wonderful anniversary evening here having dinner. The service was superb even to being greeted as soon as we drove up to the door by a pretty smiling young waitress. After an aperitif and a perusal of the menu and extensive wine list we were taken into the beautifully decorated dining room which was cosy and very comfortable. Our... More

We had just arrived from a loong journey en-route to Sutherland from North Wales and was relying on a recommendation from The Ptarmigan B&B to eat at The Killiecrankie Hotel. We ate in the Restaurant and were delighted with the quality of food and service. The ambiance was relaxed and the staff were really attentive in providing a professional and... More

Recently, a casual Saturday lunch with friends turned out to be a memorable meal since we were invited to the Bar Conservatory at this delightful little hotel, tucked away in the woods below the pass of Killiecrankie. The ambience is Highland but with an uncluttered modern feel to it and we have promised ourselves a return visit to this delightful... More

We went to this hotel to escape a downpour on our walk from Pitlochry. The owner was kind enough to keep the chef on for a few minutes while we ordered a late lunch. We had soup and sandwich for £9 which was nice but nothing special. The hotel looks very nice if not a bit twee for us, certainly... More

We ate in the bar/conservatory which is somewhat less expensive than the restaurant fixed price menu for dinner. The welcome is really warm and good service to match. The starters and main of braised steak was excellent and substantial, the pudding was a let down but coffee was great. This a super spot if you want somewhere quiet and attentive.
