Property Details

The Tummel Valley is the glorious setting for Fonab Castle Hotel. Housed in a Victorian-style castle, the waters of Loch Faskally are found to one side, the undulating forests of the Scottish Highlands to the other, and the profile of Ben Vrackie just beyond.

Guests choose from 34 individually-styled rooms and suites at Fonab Castle Hotel. Located in the historic castle, the Castle Rooms and Castle Signature Rooms are unique in their layouts, designed around the original plan of the castle. Decked in hues that evoke the natural colors of the Scottish Highlands, the showpiece of each suite is the bold Cole & Sons wallpaper covering one feature wall. Castle Signature Rooms boast an additional seating area and a traditional fireplace to keep the occasional chill at bay.

A modern wing has been added, and it is here that the collection of Woodland Rooms can be found. Contemporary wallpapers emulate the forests of the Highlands, and a view of the tree-trimmed hills and Loch Faskally is ever enjoyed through floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading to a private terrace.

The fourth floor of Fonab Castle is dedicated to its resplendent Penthouse Suite. Original architectural details of high vaulted ceilings and paneled walls are further enhanced with contemporary glass-studded wallpaper by Ulf Moritz. The seven-foot Dickens Nickel bed dominates the bedroom and invites slumber in luxurious Egyptian cotton linens.

Dine in two celebrated restaurants: 3 AA Rosette award-winner Sandeman’s and relaxed favorite Fonab Brasserie. The Lounge Bar houses an extensive collection of whiskies available for tasting, plus an entire bar devoted to gin, from famous brands to micro-brews hard to find elsewhere. Cocktails, wines, and on-the-rocks offerings are sampled with a magnificent view over Loch Faskally. This view extends to the Fonab Spa too, which includes a full menu of treatments to relax and rejuvenate, plus a bevvy of unique facilities to enhance your stay.

The town of Pitlochry is a short walk away, ideal for shopping and a stop at the Dewars and Edradour whisky distilleries. Your Ker & Downey luxury travel consultant can arrange private tours and tastings, plus excursions into the Scottish Highlands for hiking Ben Vrackie, fishing, off-roading, clay shooting, and peeking inside the many historic castles of Perthshire.
