It’s one of the most prestigious events in the equestrian calendar, and it’s back for another year. Yes, dear readers, the Blair International Horse Trials and County fair return this August, and here at the Dunalastair Hotel Suites in Perthshire, we could not be more excited.
As we bask in the warm glow of a summer sun here in Kinloch Rannoch, there probably aren’t that many people looking forward to the autumn month of October. For those gearing up for 2017’s Rannoch Marathon however, it can’t come soon enough.
With just three months to go until they take on the challenge of a lifetime, those runners will be heading into their final preparations, all in readiness to tackle the gruelling 26.2 mile course.
A tradition dating back well over a century, the Rannoch Highland Gathering has been one of the most anticipated events of the year among the team here at our Kinloch Rannoch hotel.
So you can probably imagine how excited we are now that there’s only a month to go before the event makes its big return for 2017.
A stone’s throw away from our hotel in Kinloch Rannoch, the picturesque little village of Blair Atholl may not be the biggest place around, yet what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in stature.
An area of great historical significance, the area itself traces its roots back several centuries, to before the time of the Jacobite Rising of the mid-1700s.
Whilst the Scottish Highlands may be renowned throughout the world for their breathtakingly beautiful scenery, it’s the creatures who dwell among such scenery that are the real draw for many of our guests.
Look beyond the window of our boutique hotel in Perthshire, and you’ll see the lush forests, dramatic mountains, and gorgeous, rolling hills that much of Scotland’s native wildlife call home.
As renowned for its five star fishing spots as it is for its unique Highland charm and sense of tradition, Scotland is a true haven for anyone planning to escape to the open waters for a few days, leave their troubles back home, and (hopefully) land a big catch or two.
Here at the Dunalastair Hotel Suites in Kinloch Rannoch, we’re blessed to be based right at the heart of one of the most sought after destinations for top Scottish fishing holidays, with Loch Rannoch and the River Tummel right on our doorstep.

Something spectacular is happening just down the way from our Kinloch Rannoch hotel, as Pitchlochry’s celebrated Highland Nights return for the summer season.
