It was pitch dark when we visited for a meal but we could hear the roar of the water next to the inn. Thoroughly enjoyed our food and excellent service too. Nice place - glad we went and would recommend it if you're in the area.

We ended up in this area by mistake trying to book a stay in Pitlochry online. However, our experience at The Inn on the Tay was part of a happy mistake. We had dinner seated next to the window where we could watch the river and the kayakers going through the course. The food, drink, and service were all excellent.... More

This was recommended to us by a family member and we thought we'd give it a try on our way to Aviemore. Lovely place with amazing views of the Tay. The meal was excellent, the staff were very friendly and attentive, making sure we enjoyed our meal. We will definitely be back.

Stayed here for two nights as a base to explore the area. Was right next to the river Tay. Rooms were fine and the food excellent! Had the pulled pork salad which was fabulous! Staff very friendly. Visited Pitlochry from here.

The Inn is right beside the rapids on the Tay, where they hold kayak competitions. Even with the double glazing, you can still hear the river. The hotel is just over the road from the Highland Chocolatier and close to Strathtay Golf Club. The bedrooms are enormous, suitable for groups, or families in particular, and there is a child play...
