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

Lunch at the hotel

We dropped in for a lunch. We were made very welcome by he staff and enjoyed their cullen skink followed by a light lunch. All this while being entertained by the visiting birds to the feeders outside the hotel. Lovely surroundings and a very friendly atmosphere. Recommended.

The only good thing here was the sweet young waiter, who probably was new in his position. He made a really good job. The rest was just lousy: the menu didn't have a scarlet thread and the atmosphere isn't nice.

My wife and I chanced across this gem of a place while staying in a cottage nearby. We had lunch with an old friend and colleague whom we had not seen for more years than any of us cared to remember! The hotel ticked ALL the boxes! Set in lovely grounds with a dining room in a conservatory-style room attached... More

The grounds and the surrounding countryside are spectacularly beautiful. The staff are accommodating and charming. The restaurant serves beautiful, delicious, and varied cuisine that is artfully and elegantly presented. The room I shared with my travel companion was comfortable and pretty, if a little on the small side. Many opportunities for hikes of varying lengths and degrees of difficulty. It... More

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.

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.
