The hotel brasserie and lounge provide outstanding vistas of the loch itself and Sandemans our fine dining restaurant is a tranquil setting for experiencing exquisite cuisine and fine wines.

Johanne Falconer, General Manager of Fonab Castle Hotel is delighted with this latest award.

We have an outstanding product and achieving Visit Scotland's five star status is recognition of the hard work and dedication of all of the team here at Fonab Castle Hotel.

Autumn this year will see further developments at Fonab Castle Hotel with our new Destination Spa opening along with purpose built banqueting suites.  This again will provide visitors to Pitlochry with a new world class facility that will certainly enhance all that Perthshire has to offer.

Jim Clarkson, Visit Scotland Regional Director, said:
"Congratulations to Fonab Castle Hotel on achieving a 5 Star and Taste Our Best award on their first grading visit.  They have worked extremely hard to achieve this highest star grading and are one of only five 5 Star Hotels in Perthshire.  Businesses like Fonab Castle really are one of the leading lights in the region when it comes to providing an exceptional visitor experience.

"The benefits of this 5 Star award will be reaped not only by Fonab Castle Hotel, but also by their customers and by extension Scottish tourism as a whole, as we work together to encourage visitors to Scotland to stay longer and spend more."
