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

Very good lunch

I stopped here for lunch on the way from Inverness to Perth. What an absolutely idyllic spot! Lovely grounds, a friendly spaniel and very nice staff. Food is simple but well executed with good quality ingredients. Lovely.

The Killiecrankie Hotel is like a magnet. It draws us to visit year on year. The atmosphere is very friendy in this wee gem set in lovely grounds. The food is always excellent and the rooms are very comfortable. We look forward to our visits next year.

We went here for dinner with my family and enjoyed it very much. The crab cake was wonderful as was my steak, which was very tender. The staff at dinner seemed relatively new, but were very attentive.

This is an old hotel. Given the ratings, I would have expected a more updated room. The bathroom was tiny and dated. However, the bed was comfortable with good linens. The flower filled garden was a treat and there was a constant flow of birds at the feeders. The food was excellent. The sad eyed hotel mascot did his best... More

We visited the restaurant at the Killiecrankie Hotel on a beautiful summers evening. My first reservation was that if you wanted to eat in the dining room you had to go for the 4 course set menu at £32 per head. I don't normally eat this many courses, but as it turned out, it wasn't a problem as the courses... More

We had an absolutely brilliant two days at Killiecrankie Hotel: the food was superb with a varied menu, relaxing, beautifully kept garden, the staff were exceedingly courteous and kind, and a real bonus was Beannie the Spaniel making guests welcome - she was gorgeous!

Although we had not previously made a booking we were given a table in the conservatory which was very pleasant and our chosen meals were absolutely delicious and very reasonably priced. Very well worth a visit - we hope to return one day!

We had two exceptional dinners here. The dining room has a tasteful Scots atmosphere and the service was faultless. I liked the use of local products, including a fine selection of local cheeses.

The chef is first rate and he has good support. You can dine formally in the splendid red walled dining room or on the bar porch, same food. I regret to say that there was nothing that I disliked about it -- and I am a complainer by nature.
