A great 2 night stay on B&B autumn deal B&B terms. Outstanding value - if our room was a standard room the executive rooms must be very special.

This is a nice hotel, in the middle on nowhere. If you want quite (and lots of nothingness), then head here. Nice bar with open fire, lots of board games to chill out with the wife (or family). Great pool. No life guard though - so look after the kiddies!! Rooms are a little "80's" looking but TBH, you go... More

We visit every year and just love it. I agree that the hotel is dated in parts but I feel this adds to the charm. We had a lovely meal at the bar then played board games around the fire. The most beautiful location and lovely to enjoy. Great staff

Visited here in November for 2 nights with a £99 voucher for B&B for 2 which seemed like a bargain and an ideal relaxing weekend. Location of the hotel is more or less the middle of nowhere. Great for the outdoors, peace and quiet and the beauty of Loch Rannoch and the Highlands. You must however eat and drink in... More

We've stayed here several times but on this most recent visit we noticed how tiered and dated the hotel is getting, it needs an up grade. The decor is sad and nothing matches, too many tartans! We had a very bad dinning experience, £68.00 for some soup and pasta and it wasn't even great pasta. Its a shame because we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the heart of the Highlands, the hotel is situated on the north shore above Loch Rannoch and the picturesque village of Kinloch Rannoch with majestic views of the loch and hills that are simply breathtaking. The magnificent setting is the ideal location to enjoy a break away from busy lives or a romantic retreat. Steeped in tradition and rich in heritage, the hotel invites one to step back to a quieter time, while still enjoying the comfort of a superb hotel. Looking for somewhere to enjoy quality Scottish food? There is a fine selection of meals to be enjoyed in The Ptarmigan Restaurant or the Schiehallion Bar. Here at our Loch Rannoch Perthshire hotel we use only the freshest of ingredients to provide fantastic food, expertly prepared, in beautiful surroundings with superb service. And when you need to unwind, our Leisure Club is the ideal way to relax after a long day. Heated swimming pool, steam room, sauna and gym are on offer to relieve stress and leave you feeling refreshed. For the more energetic, Schiehallion - our local Munro - beckons. There are numerous woodland walks nearby too, which are suitable for all the family. ... more   less
