Letter to owners from the Dunkeld House Hotel
Here is an update from the Dunkeld House Hotel management to lodge owners, January 2017. The hotel refurbishment is now complete.
Hotel Discount Scheme
As you may be aware, the hotel has been in private ownership as the Dunkeld House Hotel since May 2016. The Hotel food and beverage discount scheme is no longer available.
Please be aware of and make use of the recycling facilities which are available beyond Lodge 12. Please don’t dispose of such waste in the Hotel’s bins.
A note for Dog Owners
We have had complaints about dog fouling within the Hotel grounds. Please remember that dogs must be kept on a leash while within the grounds, and owners should look after them responsibly, respecting the other people who use the area.
Magic Moments – the Dunkeld Experience
Arriving at the Dunkeld lodges is an experience to remember. Whatever the month, whatever the season, as an owner or visitor, you will want to savour this welcome over and over again.
Leaving the A9 behind, you will cross the famous Telford bridge and pass through the quaint village of Dunkeld, nestling peacefully among the hills of beautiful Perthshire. The sprawling estate bids you welcome, as you enter through the rustic archway. You wind your way slowly along the long sweeping driveway, as the sheep and deer graze quietly in the adjacent fields.
Soon the glistening River Tay will peep through the majestic trees. You have arrived – time to relax and enjoy the Dunkeld Experience!
The Lodges (RCI Gold Crown Award 1992-2017)
The lodges at Dunkeld offer a place where you can go when you want to enjoy time by yourself or with friends and family. Designed to the highest standards, they are the ideal holiday retreat where you set the pace, indulge yourself and discover what relaxation and revitalisation really mean.
There are three styles within the estate: the original Atholl 1 and Atholl 2 lodges, and the Atholl 3 and Osprey lodges set on the hillside.
The Surrounding Area
Dunkeld lies at the gateway to ‘Highland Perthshire’. The home of the Earls of Atholl since 1529, it is situated in an area rich in beauty, wildlife and history. Osprey majestically fish the River Tay for Salmon and Trout while Capercaillie, Black Cock and Wildcat lurk in the surrounding forests and hills.
Take a step back into the last century, and rejoice in the beauties of nature, the sight of mountains and the pure air by taking a walk through the grounds.
Venture out into the neighbouring countryside to enjoy the delights around Dunkeld, Blair Atholl and Pitlochry. The Hermitage, Loch of the Lowes, the Queen’s View, the Falls of Bruar and Killiecrankie. Shop at the House of Bruar or visit distilleries at Blair Atholl or Edradour, their very names drenched in the history of Scotland. This is Big Tree Country!
