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

Excellent restaurant

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.

We're really pleased we found the Killiecrankie Hotel. We had a very nice bar lunch. Nice attentive staff, cosy atmosphere and the food was good. We nearly didn't go in ..... it looked very shut and a bit run down as we turned into the driveway. Out with the paint when Spring is round the corner I think !

Was dining here on the 2nd January and are expectations were high based on several recommendations from others. Are food was good but nothing to sing home about. Chips were under cooked and burger was bland and unexciting! Annoyingly a number of the items on the menu were unavailable. I am putting this down to the time of year for... More

We just loved staying at Killiecrankie with Henrietta Ferguson and couldn't fault her amazing staff from Callum her manager to the wonderful maid who turned our bed down every night tucking in the best hot water bottles in Scotland. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens which compliment the impressive building. There are gorgeous little areas to discover and relax... More

This hotel is set amongst glorious gardens where you can have breakfast or cocktails if you wish. My room was so pretty and elegant (& not over-decorated) and smelled wonderful. The meals are excellent too. I loved everything about Killiecrankie Hotel - the kind helpful owner & staff; the hills and river close by; the dogs make it feel like... More

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.
