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.
"Unbelievable" Booked a two night stay for my fiance and I's birthdays. Was unbelievable! From the views to the warming log burner and the very relaxing hot tub, this is top notch accommodation! The lodge we stayed in (lodge 4) was very well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay and the house keeper who explained how to use the hot tub and log burner was very knowledgeable and helpful regarding the surrounding area. Will definitely be back for another special occasion. Megan from Edinburgh
