"At Knockendarroch we believe that the best hotel experiences result from a
careful blending of quality, comfort, style and service. Whilst the objective standard
of these discrete features is important, we think what really matters, is how they are
balanced and blended to create the optimum overall experience."
This is what drives us at Knockendarroch and our constantly evolving guest experience is
built on this belief. The elusive 'perfect blend' may always be just around the
corner, but we like to think we are doing a pretty good job of chasing it down.
If this approach to hospitality strikes a chord with you, then we think you might really
enjoy a stay with us at our hotel in Pitlochry.

Hopeful for a re-opening 1st March 2021
The winter refurbishment program is well under way and on schedule to complete at the
end of January. Seven of our bedrooms and bathrooms are getting a refresh for 2021 and
we are very much looking forward to showing them off.
Larch House - our most exciting project to date
Work has also started on the conversion of a house in the Knockendarroch garden into
four additional guest bedrooms. The house was built four years ago and is a wonderful,
modern and ecologically impressive structure. Highly insulated and with underfloor
heating fueled by an air source heat pump, the new bedrooms will offer something a
little different to the rooms in the main building. There will be a huge 80m2 suite on
the first floor with spectacular views of Cluny woods and the Vale of Atholl. The ground
floor will house three Garden Rooms, with direct access to small south facing private
gardens. Something for everyone! Check out our
Rooms Page for more information.

look forward to receiving your bookings for 2021.
