The Experience

Stop to watch the canoeists weave down the river Tay as you cross the bridge to the hotel. Woodsmoke rises from the chiminea on the terrace to greet you; linger here on balmy days, something cold in hand, listening to the river. Encircled by woodland, fields and heather-clad hills you’ll soon be striding off; borrow a mini map with an inspiring itinerary, perhaps ‘whisky, walks, water’ or ‘sculpture, scenery, sauna.’

The Rowley’s run a cookery school at their farm a few miles down the road and most of their chefs trained at the Leith school so you’ll find an inventive menu showcasing the best local producers and suppliers. Menus change daily, seasonality is key and the wine list is carefully curated. For breakfast don’t miss porridge with hedgerow brambles, eggs all ways, black pudding hash, classic full Scottish.

Each of the eight bedrooms are divine: roll tops, drenching showers, one has its own terrace, all have proper coffee.

Reviews

I confidently predict that once you have sampled the delights of all that The Grandtully Hotel has to offer you will return time after time for more! It is a very special place not only for its outstanding and reasonably priced cuisine and friendly relaxed atmosphere but also for its setting at the heart of beautiful highland Perthshire.

Location

The neighbourhood

Plenty to do on foot: chocolatier Iain Burnett's shop is next door; cross the bridge and wander up to Strathtay's nine hole golf course; follow the old railway path into Aberfeldy (five miles) where you'll find an art-deco cinema and the superb Watermill bookshop, cafe and gallery. Walk from the door into the hills and woods; get on the river - hire canoes or brave white water rafting.

Local points of interest from Rachel Rowley

  • Strathtay, just across the bridge, a charming wee village with a sweet local shop and Post Office, two churches, lovely walks and a small, quirky golf course.
  • Next door The Highland Chocolatier, a must stop for the world's best truffles and hot chocolate. Try a chocolate tasting if you're feeling particularly indulgent or buy a box of sweet treats for someone back home.
  • Cluny House Gardens just a short drive away - a steep climb but worth it for incredible views and inspirational planting.
  • The Watermill, a wonderful independent bookshop, gallery and cafe in nearby Aberfeldy.
  • Contact Beyond Adventure to plan a trip on the river or exploring the hills. Guided walks and all kinds of water based activities are available for all abilities.
  • Dewars Distillery, Aberfeldy, other than in our bar, The Tully, this is our nearest whisky. An award winning visitor centre, cafe and dram after dram of wonderful whisky.

Introducing

Rachel Rowley

Rachel has a background in marketing, an eye for design and a flair for welcoming guests; Chris is a banker who retrained as a chef at the Leith cookery school and his brother, Andrew, is an expert sommelier. The couple also run a cookery school and B&B at their nearby farm, Ballintaggart, and have three children so expect games and a child-friendly small persons menu. Their team are great too.
