Joanna’s Comments

Killiecrankie lies halfway between Edinburgh and Inverness in the most beautiful Highland scenery in Scotland. Henrietta Fergusson bought this 10-bedroom hotel eight years ago and completely refurbished it, incorporating her taste and warmth into everything. Many of you will remember Henrietta as the hostess at Skibo and Bovey Castle. Her experience has proved invaluable here, and in 2011 she won the Good Hotel Guide César Award – Scottish Hotel of the Year 2011. This is an extraordinary achievement in such a short time. There is a stylish restaurant run by chef Mark Easton, who takes his inspiration from the local rivers, lochs and hills. There is a fun bar where the locals pop in for a drink and to chat with Henrietta and guests. The area is rich in castles, fishing, hiking and shopping. The increasingly popular Pitlochry Festival Theatre runs from May into December.

Blair Castle
Blair Castle


PITLOCHRY: Pitlochry is a Highland Victorian town in a beautiful setting in the Tummel Valley, surrounded by wooded hills. It is just 3 miles south of Killiecrankie. There are some excellent tweed and cashmere shops and a number of restaurants.

BLAIR ATHOLL: Just 3 miles north of Killiecrankie is Blair Castle in Blair Atholl, traditional home to the dukes of Atholl and a predominant feature of the area. Visitors are welcomed to tour the castle and grounds during the season.  
Also in Blair Atholl, there is a very pleasant walk through the steep-sided Glen Tilt, cut by the clear waters of the River Tilt as it flows down to the River Garry. Just a mile or so north of Blair Castle, the Falls of Bruar provides a spectacular setting for a romantic walk along well-maintained paths to view the fine waterfalls.

DUNKELD/LOCH OF THE LOWES/THE HERMITAGE: Fifteen minutes' drive south of Killiecrankie lies the historic town of Dunkeld which nestles along the banks of River Tay surrounded by rolling wooded hills. The town boasts a fine example of a Telford bridge dating from 1809 and the ancient Cathedral of Dunkeld, dating from the 12th and 15th centuries. There are many interesting little shops and art galleries in Dunkeld—well worth a visit. A mile along the A9 from Dunkeld lies The Hermitage, a woodland which contains numerous native and exotic trees of awe-inspiring height. The path through these leads to Ossian's Hall, a folly build in 1758 by the 2nd Duke of Atholl's nephew. Here one can view the roaring waterfall below, a spectacular sight. Loch of the Lowes Wildlife Reserve and Visitor Centre lie 2 miles east of Dunkeld. Here visitors can watch wildlife without disturbing it and learn about the flora and fauna from the resident Ranger. The highlight of a visit here is to see the nesting osprey feeding its chicks, a rare treat; take binoculars with you.

SHOPPING AT THE HOUSE OF BRUAR: The House of Bruar has brought a sample of the best of Scottish merchandise and put it all together in one single wonderful setting. Located near Blair Atholl (in the middle of nowhere), this complex offers unrivaled shopping from coffee to cashmere, cheese to china and food to footwear. There is little that has not been thought of and the prices are so very reasonable for the quality on offer. This is a shopping experience not to be missed!
