Stayed here for a weekend break with my partner and loved the location; right next to Loch Rannoch. We found the hotel to be comfortable with friendly staff but could maybe do with a bit of an update. Overall a good choice for a relaxing break in a beautiful part of the world.

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful setting. The room was lovely and view amazing. The bar meal was great and service very quick. The hotel seemed very quiet and staff were milling around reception which felt a little intimidating though everyone was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was nice although the coffee was much too strong and the items on...

Would not stay again, cant get wifi in the rooms, and hardly any tv channels, the pool and food were great though. The staff were excellent with what they have too work with. Barmaid was excellent. The hotel is too isolated for us but might suit others looking for peace and quiet.. It is in need of a good modern...

We really like this hotel - great location, nice staff, spacious rooms and good food. However our Hogmanay stay was disappointing. The buffet had been prepared and set out too early. The starters were fine as they were mostly cold but the mains (meant to be hot) were dried up and hard. The event had been advertised as not being...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

The magnificent setting is the ideal location to enjoy a break away from busy lives or a romantic retreat. Steeped in tradition and rich in heritage, the hotel invites one to step back to a quieter time, while still enjoying the comfort of a superb hotel. Looking for somewhere to enjoy quality Scottish food? There is a fine selection of meals to be enjoyed in The Ptarmigan Restaurant or the Schiehallion Bar. Here at our Loch Rannoch Perthshire hotel we use only the freshest of ingredients to provide fantastic food, expertly prepared, in beautiful surroundings with superb service. And when you need to unwind, our Leisure Club is the ideal way to relax after a long day. Heated swimming pool, steam room, sauna and gym are on offer to relieve stress and leave you feeling refreshed. For the more energetic, Schiehallion - our local Munro - beckons.
