In the gardens The Claymore in Pitlochry's main street, is the Claymore Hotel. An amazing place to enjoy your holiday and learn about nature. Enjoy views of the Cluniemore Hilles and free access to Wi-Fi. Walk for two minutes to reach the city center and bus and train stations. A little further away is Fish Ladder and Blair Castle. In The Claymore they do not serve dinner, but you can take your own food and drink to the breakfast room. And if you prefer, you can go to any restaurant in Pitlochry, since they are very close to the hotel. .
LOCATION: A 90-minute drive from Glasgow and a little over 100 kilometers from the Scottish capital. Idneo is the place to spend the night if you're traveling from Edinburgh to Inverness. It is also good place to stay if you intend to visit Balmoral Castle and continue to Aberdeen. We decided to stay at the Hotel Fisher's 3 * mainly because it is one of the few establishments that have with triple or family options. Besides being in the center of town, it is surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants.
FACILITIES: The hotel is an old Victorian house, which gives a certain aura of charm with its high ceilings and thick walls. It has 130 rooms (double and family). Facilities include a restaurant and bar, as well as a cozy lounge with a fireplace where performances are held live every night: pipers, magicians, comedians, etc. Breakfast is served from 07:30am to 10am (Monday to Friday) and from 8am to 10:30am (Saturdays and Sundays). The variety of Scottish breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausages and haggis) is passable. However the continental breakfast has little choice: bread, butter, a couple flavors of jam and chocolate mini muffins. It is enough to get by, but poor for the category of hotel. The hotel offers free WiFi connection in public areas in (surcharge of the rooms) and limited parking for which a reservation is not needed, although it is advisable to arrive early.
ROOMS: We were assigned a spacious family room on the first floor, overlooking a beautiful and quiet interior garden. The suite had two queen beds, dressers, as well as ample closet space. It also had a fireplace, a desk, a set of coffee and tea, plus a television and ironing board. However, the amenities were lacking considering it was a family room (minimum 3 people).
PRICE / BOOK: We stayed from June 28th to 29th 2014 (1 night) and paid 110 pounds (137 euros) for a triple suite bed and breakfast.
We were fortunate enough to spend a week in this great resort through a timeshare exchange. Five years have passed and it still seems like yesterday. Located just outside Aberfeldy, it is in the middle of a large meadow surrounded by a thick forest and perfectly equipped with all the possible amenities needed for a comfortable stay. I still remember that while we had to use the heating Spain and southern Europe were suffering a major heat wave. Being in its small, but attractive, heated pool while watching the rain outside was one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had.
This charming and typical hotel contains nearly 400 years of history. Since its inception, it has always had an excellent reputation as a clean, quiet place that offers anything but exorbitant prices. It has a beautiful location on the banks of Loch Tay. In fact it is well-known across Scotland and I would say even in England. The bar and restaurant are famous and recognized for their quality and great service. The restaurant has been remodeled and is now has a huge balcony on the river with beautiful views over the Glen Lyon Mountains and the Highlands. If you want to try the authentic Scottish salmon (usually cooked with dill), this place is one of the best restaurants in which to order it. This is one of those places that you can write books about, but the only way to get to know it is to experience it in person.
