Here at our Kinloch Rannoch Hotel, Dunalastair Hotel Suites have compiled a seven-day itinerary perfect for all of the family. We have aimed to create the right mix of excitement and relaxation. At the same time, we want to offer our guests a chance to learn about the history and the lives of the people who live in this beautiful part of the world. We want our five-star hotel in the Scottish Highlands to be a haven for our guests to return to after enjoying Scotland’s natural wilderness and stunning beauty.
It is only by experiencing it first-hand that the majesty and magic of Scotland can be truly understood. To many visitors, Scotland is a special place they hold dear to their hearts. Imbued with centuries of turbulent history and alive with legend and drama. The landscape has seen it all.
Hills, lochs, and moorland have quietly borne witness to conflict through the generations. If they could talk, they would recount the cries of battle and blood spilt over the heather. Crofts and villages were cruelly destroyed while land and stock changed hands. With such a backdrop, it is no wonder the people of Scotland are fiercely patriotic.
In our hectic modern world, we are always looking forward to switching off and enjoying time away from our everyday routine. You often hear the phrase that nature is nurturing; even if you’re not an outdoor enthusiast, there are many ways to connect with nature to help promote a deep sense of relaxation and restoration. For those wanting to immerse themselves in glorious natural landscapes and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of nature, there is no better destination to connect with your surroundings than the Scottish Highlands.
