Knockendarroch Hotel & Restaurant is a luxury Pitlochry Hotel & Restaurant in Scotland, Perthshire

Roaring log fires help to make our luxury guest lounge a wonderfully relaxing space to enjoy drinks and canapés before taking dinner in our two AA rosette restaurant. At Knockendarroch we pride ourselves on excellent food, comfortable rooms, wonderful views and friendly service...
Reopening currently planned for 1 July 2020
We are sad to report that the hotel and restaurant are now closed following a clear instruction by the government to do so. We currently believe that the enforced closure will last for at least 12 weeks. As such, we will be taking bookings online for arrival dates after 30 June. Whilst this may be an ambitious target we really need to keep accepting bookings so that when restrictions are lifted, we will have enough business to warrant reopening immediately. We will reassess our reopening date regularly and get in touch to postpone affected bookings thereafter. Your support by continuing to make bookings will be truly valuable. Look after yourselves and we will see you on the other side.
Current reservations for stays during our closed dates
Our plan is to contact all guests with bookings in the diary to discuss their options. We will be dealing with bookings in date order and so please be patient with us. We have around a thousand bookings to deal with, so this will take some time. If you have any immediate concerns regarding your reservation with us then please email the hotel.
Our amazing team
Although we currently have no work for them, all of our fantastic and loyal staff remain full employees of the business. I know many of our regular guests will be concerned for our team in these difficult times. We therefore thought you would like to know that we are in the fortunate position to have been able offer all of them accommodation within our staff houses, for as long as they need it, should private arrangements become difficult. We will continue to ensure they are looked after for as long as is required.
Pitlochry hotels have been popular with tourists for over 150 years. The stunning mountain and mixed woodland scenery with its many lochs, rivers and waterfalls is well mapped for walkers and mountain-bikers. Pitlochry Golf Club, home of the Highland Open, is just 5 minutes up the road, also offering great views over the town and down the Vale of Atholl.
A more sedate way to enjoy the great Scottish Highland scenery of Perthshire is from the many well-planned viewpoints and easy access paths throughout the area. With multiple other attractions, including the ever popular Pitlochry Festival Theatre, the dam and salmon ladder, castles and historic attractions, groves of ‘Big Trees’, distilleries, shops and great cafes and delis, Pitlochry has a lot to offer.
However you decide to make use of your visit to Pitlochry, the comfort of our luxury highland hotel with its stunning Highland Perthshire views, excellent food and friendly service make Knockendarroch a perfect place to stay.
Note: Pitlochry train station is a main line station with direct trains to Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. We have private parking for all guests including two spaces with electric vehicle / Tesla chargers. Complimentary WiFi is available throughout our Pitlochry accommodation. For theatre goers we offer pre-theatre dining and a complimentary transport service during the main season.
