This impressive Victorian mansion was built in the 1830s and commissioned by Sir William Ogilvy - a hero of the Battle of Waterloo. The house was modified in 1945 and converted into the hotel that it is today. When the house was remodelled the interior hall was modified to replicate one of the grand saloons on the famous Cunard cruise ship, The Mauretania. The chandelier and wall light fittings are in fact originals from the ship herself, bought at auction when she was decommissioned in 1938. The family-friendly hotel comprises a total of 17 guest rooms and welcomes its guests into a lobby. There is a restaurant on site and conference facilities are provided. Internet access and room service are available and guests arriving by car can leave their vehicles in the nearby car park.
Overlooking the small and friendly town of Alyth, this charming historical hotel commands superb views over both its own beautiful terraced garden, and the lush fields and golf courses that surround the attractive hotel. Guests staying at the establishment can watch go horse riding at Glenmarkie Stables (15 minutes away), can visit the Angus Folk Museum and the Balmoral Castle at Blairgowre (both 15 minutes away), or can watch racing at Perth (25 km away).
