Think ‘central-casting’ Scottish Baronial Castle and you’ll come up with one of Scotland’s most magnificent and mind-blowing places to stay – Fonab Castle Hotel & Spa. Opened in 2013 at ‘no expense-spared’ by the Clark family, Fonab has established itself as 5-star luxury escape and the premier hotel in the area. Fonab Castle Hotel is unique, luxurious and, above all, an experience. Little wonder that guests have described their stay at the Castle as faultless with one guest describing her stay as a ‘fairy tale’ experience.
The inspiration for the individually designed bedrooms comes from the romance and colour of the surrounding Perthshire Highlands. The rooms are nothing less than indulgent with luxury linen, Nespresso machines, smart TVs, bathrobes and fluffy towels and Theiry Mugler toiletry products in the bathroom.
There are two excellent restaurants: the Fonab Brassiere for lighter meals and the Sandeman Fine Dining restaurant offering the finest in Scottish fare. On warmer days diners may choose to dine al fresco on the terrace overlooking the loch. The cellars (over 200 bins) have a choice of wines to suit all tastes and pockets and what is quite likely to be one of the largest selection of whiskies and gin in Scotland.
The Woodland Spa is an exceptionally relaxing place to relax and rejuvenate. Immerse yourself in the thermal suite with steam room, sauna and aroma relax room with eucalyptus and lavender, or while away the hours in the 15 metre pool or spa pool. Golfers are also well catered for as they can, subject to handicap and tee times, play at the world-famous Gleneagles. If you plan on walks through the countryside, don’t forget the dog – well behaved dogs are more than welcome in the soon to open state-of-the art kennels.
