The town of Pitlochry grew in the Victorian era when the great north railway line was built running from Edinburgh and Glasgow to Inverness in the north. The Victorians came to the town to take in the clean air and waters of the region and it became a popular spa destination for wealthy city dwellers. Train travel made the journey much easier than previously and so hotels were constructed to meet the demand. The Pitlochry Hydro Hotel was one of the first establishments to offer room and board and of course the wonderful water from Ben-y-Vrackie. It was a dry hotel, in terms of alcohol, and originally named The Pitlochry Hydropathic.
Times have changed and Pitlochry now offers new age spas and boundless fitness activity options. What hasn't changed is the wonderul environment in which you will find such a facility - clean air, beautiful scenery and an opportunity to relax.
We stayed in the house. Plenty of space for all of us. All the rooms are large especially the living room and dining room. C Barrie
We had a few days in a one-bed lodge, idea was to 'get away from it all'. Enough privacy to do just that, and the hot tub certainly did it's job to sit back, relax, enjoy the sun and the stunning views around Pitlochry. Andy was very helpful, as was Jane. Everything you are likely to need was there for you, clean and tidy too. Have told a few friends of our experience...all very positive. Many thanks - hope to return. Tripadvisor 3
