Click here for Road Map

Dunalastair Hotel in the snowWonderfully situated east of the settlement of Kinloch Rannoch and between beautiful Loch Tummel and much wilder Loch Rannoch, Dunalastair is set amidst one of the most scenic areas of Scotland.

Dunalastair  was the name of the original estate, formerly the seat of the Struan Robertsons, Chiefs of Clan Donnachaidh, or Duncan, descended from the Celtic Mormaers of Atholl. Much excitement has occurred here. Of all the clans, The Robertsons of Struan were amongst the most loyal to the Stewarts.

The area is known and loved by naturalists, and there are opportunities for hill climbing, walking, fishing , biking, white water rafting and sailing, or just strolling down by the shores of the loch and taking in the peaceful atmosphere and beautiful scenery..

Dunalastair is wonderfully located for visits to Aberfeldy, Pitlochry, Killiecrankie, Glen Lyon, Blair Castle, the Falls of Bruar, The Queen's View and so much more - even the evening theatre productions in Pitlochry. It also makes a wonderful relaxing base from which to visit Dunkeld, Perth, St Andrews or even Balmoral and Royal Deeside.

The Dunalastair Hotel has a long tradition of real 'Highland hospitality', having been built as an inn soon after the Battle of Culloden by the returning soldiers. It remained as such for well over 100 years until its development into a hotel at the end of the nineteenth century under the guiding eye of Major General Alastair Macdonald, Commander of the forces.
