Bottom Line

The 14-room Craigatin House and Courtyard is an upscale boutique bed and breakfast surrounded by woodlands and scenic countryside in Pitlochry. The 200-year-old house mixes tradition with stylish, contemporary design. Spacious, modern rooms have coordinated color schemes, and come with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi -- free bottled water and cookies are thoughtful touches. A tasty and extensive breakfast, included in the room rate, is served in a bright, airy dining room with a log stove and huge windows overlooking the grassy lawn. The atmosphere is hushed and tranquil -- be aware that the property does not allow children under 13 years old. Families traveling with young children might want to consider the nearby Pine Trees Pitlochry Hotel.

Scene

Charming countryside house mixes tradition with chic, contemporary interiors

Surrounded by scenic countryside and wooded grounds, the Craigatin House and Courtyard, ensconced in a 200-year-old stone country house, tastefully blends tradition and modernity. A modern A-frame wooden extension abutting the main building houses the light and airy dining room. Natural light pours in through the large windows, and its blond-wood floors and furnishings lend a Scandinavian look. A lovely sunlit lounge with comfortable armchairs and a log-burning stove occupies the front of the structure, and opens onto an immaculate green lawn. The hotel has a quiet and tranquil atmosphere, likely due in part to its policy of not allowing children younger than 13 years old.

Location

Located on the western end of Pitlochry’s main street; surrounded by woodlands and countryside

Map of Craigatin House & Courtyard

The hotel is located in the small Victorian town of Pitlochry, a quaint area surrounded by scenic countryside, hills, and mountains. Situated on the western end of Atholl Road, Pitlochry’s main street, the property is a short walk to the many restaurants, bars, and shops that line the road, though it's removed enough to offer quiet and partial seclusion. The bus and train stations are an eight-minute walk from the property. The area attracts travelers seeking a dose of nature and countryside, and there are various outdoor activities in the area, such as walking and hiking on the many trails, and golfing at the Pitlochry Golf Course, which is a two-minute drive or a 15-minute walk from the Craigatin. Nearby sights worth visiting include the beautiful Blair Castle (a 10-minute drive) and the Blair Atholl Distillery, about a three-minute drive. Edinburgh is an hour and a half away.

Rooms

Spacious, stylish rooms with modern decor and bathrooms

Decor varies from room to room, but all are fresh and contemporary, with stylish modern furnishings, large windows, and lots of natural light. The spacious rooms have tasteful color schemes -- crimson, white, and brown or rich purple and plums pair with slate gray. Some rooms have lovely accent walls of patterned wallpaper, and modern blond-wood furniture. All rooms have flat-screen TVs, DVD players, free Wi-Fi, tea- and coffee-making facilities, plus free bottled water and cookies but no minibars or mini-fridges. Modern bathrooms have walk-in showers, heated towel racks, and high-end toiletries. A Suite with a separate living room includes such additional amenities as an iPod dock, espresso machine, and two flat-screen TVs.

Features

Free extensive breakfast buffet served in lovely dining room, plus free Wi-Fi and parking

A tasty and extensive breakfast buffet is included in the room rate, served in the airy and sunlit dining room. It includes freshly baked croissants, fruit, cereals, yogurt, and porridge, plus the choice of a hot main course that includes an omelette, apple pancakes, French toast, or a traditional Scottish breakfast. The hotel does not, however, have a full restaurant or a fitness center. Wi-Fi is free throughout, and free parking is available.
