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.
We booked the premier love cabin for 3 nights for our mini moon - simply To relax and chill out undisturbed after the stress of the wedding and then immediately followed by Xmas! And relax we did - the hot tub was lovely! Always warm and a good size - and surprisingly private! I had thought the lodges looked a little close together when we arrived but they are set out so you feel like nobody else is there with amazing views of the mountains! There was plenty of wood for the log burner to cosy by on an evening and close enough to walk into Pitlochry to take in the views and some fresh air! The cottage had everything we needed and was personalised with 'Just Married' signs which was a lovely touch - we wish we had stayed longer! We also used the on site spa uniq which was also a highly recommended experience! Will definitely return and will recommend to others xxx The Graydons, Sunderland
myself and my husband are just back today from Kinnaird , we were looking for a relaxing weekend and some peace and quiet and that's what we got ,as soon as you walk into your lodge you know you made the right choice, 10/10 for cleanliness,10/10 for comfort,10/10 for the hosts Andy and Jane and all the personal touches about the place and the log fire is easy to use and clean we would be back for a return visit, and I would highly recommend these lodges for a getaway as for the hot tub well ,that's the icing on the cake for me:) Elizabeth on Trip Advisor
