Hotel a Hidden Gem in Scotland ) Fortingall is a charming four
star country house hotel near Aberfeldy, in Perthshire located at the
entrance to Glen Lyon and close to Loch Tay.
Fortingall offers world class field sports, fishing and shooting as well
as an array of outdoor activities. The hotel is within easy reach of House
of Bruar, Pitlochry, Blair Castle, Dewar’s World of Whisky and the
smallest distillery in Scotland - Edradour.
The 10 en-suite bedrooms are decorated to a high standard; the hotel
lies in a sleepy hamlet beside a 5,000 year old Yew tree. The peace and
tranquility make for a great nights sleep.
As journalist and broadcaster S.P.B. Mais found during his travels in
the 1930s, Fortingall is a delightful discovery. Almost eighty years later,
the hotel still offers all the qualities that so charmed him back then.
Graded four stars by Visit Scotland, guests can recognise the hotel’s
Victorian heritage in its calm, muted colours and by the use of tweeds
in the furnishings. This décor is carefully allied with modern
bathroom fittings and equipment, making a stay at Fortingall Hotel comfortable,
relaxing and hospitable.
