Short break
We had the most amazing 2 night stay at Fonab Castle. Accommodation was stunning with everything you needed. Food was absolutely amazing. All facilities perfect. I had the best body scrub/massage ever. Cant wait to go back. Pitlochry was a short walk where there were plenty places to visit. The whole experience was just perfect, just what we needed

Beautiful place to relax
Beautiful place with stunning scenery. Stayed in lodge which was lovely and had a great balcony although we didn’t have a view it faced the carpark. Spa was nice, pool, steam room, sauna and jacuzzi. Dinner was delicious and breakfast the best we’ve had. The staff are what makes the place so friendly and helpful.

Lovely room and hotel. Room doesn’t have a fridge that’s a bit of a let down. Food at Fonab fantastic And only walk to town across the hydro dam. Massage at the spa a must.
