The town of Pitlochry grew in the Victorian era when the great north railway line was built running from Edinburgh and Glasgow to Inverness in the north. The Victorians came to the town to take in the clean air and waters of the region and it became a popular spa destination for wealthy city dwellers. Train travel made the journey much easier than previously and so hotels were constructed to meet the demand. The Pitlochry Hydro Hotel was one of the first establishments to offer room and board and of course the wonderful water from Ben-y-Vrackie. It was a dry hotel, in terms of alcohol, and originally named The Pitlochry Hydropathic.
Times have changed and Pitlochry now offers new age spas and boundless fitness activity options. What hasn't changed is the wonderul environment in which you will find such a facility - clean air, beautiful scenery and an opportunity to relax.
Lodges are beautifully set out and to sit in the hot tub in the peace and quiet overlooking rolling fields and mountains is idyllic. Tripadvisor 2
A little slice of heaven in a beautiful location with luxury. The facilities are well thought out and beautifully presented. This has been our second visit and we can't wait to come back. The standard of accommodation is fantastic, spotlessly clean and with lots of little touches to make you feel really special. Love it love it love it!! S Mobberley, Whitley Bay
