The location of this hotel is magnificent and we were lucky to have a room with a stunning view over the Loch and the snow covered mountains. We found the staff to be very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. We found the quality of food to be very mixed. Our starters at dinner were excellent (Cullen skink in particiukar)...

The staff were fantastic, very friendly and helpful. The downside was the prices for some of the food and drink. You are really...

Bed and breakfast. Good all round stay for two nights. Very spacious room with view over loch. Highlight was the female staff member at bar, who took great pride in her work. Nothing was to much trouble. Food was decent also. Very quiet area at this time of year though.

As a caterer for over 40 years these staff were exceptional in their professional work. Also the food was beautifully presented and each mouthful was delicious. The same experience was enjoyed at breakfast. We will return.

Enjoyed a very relaxing stay at the hotel, rooms were lovely, beds were super comfy, shower was disappointing, breakfast was excellent, menus sounded lovely but didn't actually enjoy the food for the price, leisure facilities were great.

Idyllic location for a quiet weekend break. Room was great - spacious and well maintained and the facilities at the hotel were great too (although when we stayed, the sauna/steam room was only open at specific times). From check in to check out the staff delivered first class service and I would certainly return here in the future for another...

Stayed here for a weekend break with my partner and loved the location; right next to Loch Rannoch. We found the hotel to be comfortable with friendly staff but could maybe do with a bit of an update. Overall a good choice for a relaxing break in a beautiful part of the world.

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
