Explore the best of the Scottish Highlands on your next holiday

Deep among the breathtakingly beautiful surroundings of the Highlands, Dunalastair Hotel Suites is conveniently located close to a number of picturesque Scottish towns and villages, all of which are well worth a visit on your next holiday.

The village of Kinloch Rannoch itself is packed with plenty of things to see, do, and explore; so much so that you could spend your entire weekend break here without ever needing to venture any further.

Yet to do so would be to miss out on the captivating views, action-packed activities and historical landmarks that our neighbours in Pitlochry, Blair Atholl, Aberfeldy, and Kenmore have to offer.

To help ensure you are making the most of your next family, group, or activity holiday in Scotland, we have put together the following guide to those areas further afield that you simply must visit when you stay at Dunalastair Hotel Suites.

Pitlochry with its beautiful scenery and rich clan history is a must-see on your visit to Perthshire.

Renowned throughout the Highlands for its incredible scenery, rich Scottish history, and a host of activities and landmarks, the beautiful town of Pitlochry is one of Perthshire’s most popular destinations.

Situated in the very heart of Perthshire, Pitlochry is no more than 40 minutes away from your boutique holiday accommodation here at the Dunalastair Hotel Suites.

The best in Scottish history, heritage and culture

No Scottish getaway is complete without experiencing some authentic Scottish culture and delving into the fascinating history of the Highland clans. Pitlochry has this in abundance.

Every Monday evening throughout the summer, the local Vale of Atholl Pipe Band lead a throng of performers in the weekly Pitlochry Highland Nights, an exciting celebration of traditional Scottish music, country dancing, and entertainment.

Elsewhere, the Pitlochry Explorers’ Garden offers up six acres of not only beautiful surroundings, but also a chance to delve deep into the history of the Highlands. As you walk around the enchanting gardens, you’ll hear about the lives and adventures of the legendary Scottish Plant Hunters, brave explorers who ventured to the furthest corners of Earth to collect and cultivate some of the world’s rarest flora and fauna.  See our Gardens page for more details.
