£2m refurb for iconic Pitlochry hotel

One of Scotland’s most iconic tourist hotels has announced it is undergoing a £2million renovation, transforming Pitlochry’s best known hotel into a luxurious Highland haven.

The historic Fisher’s Hotel - which dates back to 1830 and has welcomed many famous faces including Prime Minister William Gladstone in 1892 and world-renowned philanthropist Andrew Carnegie – was damaged by fire on Hogmanay 2016 however, thanks to investment from owners The Castle Collection, the hotel is set to come back bigger and better than ever before.

The extensive project will see the refurbishment and creation of 30 new rooms within the hotel giving a new room count of 140. This includes the creation of impressive new special occasion rooms – all of which will feature spacious new arrangements for guests to enjoy.

A welcoming new layout will lead guests to the contemporary new look rooms which have been undergoing renovation since January 2017 with many of the original features including period fireplaces being re-instated.

Along with changes to the hotel interior, a new 150 cover restaurant will be unveiled, creating a new landmark eating venue for the town.

The new Castle Restaurant will include an indoor Zen garden with glass roof spanning all floors of the hotel for diners to admire whilst they enjoy a host of delicious dishes which have helped to cement the hotel’s popularity with tourists from around the world.

Brian Wishart, general manager of Fisher’s Hotel, said; “Fisher’s Hotel has a strong reputation for being one of Pitlochry’s best hotels among tourists to Perthshire and this investment will allow us to enhance the fantastic experience we already offer to visitors.

“The fire was a real catalyst in bringing the refurb project into fruition and our guests have been incredibly supportive of our efforts in ensuring the future of this iconic building.

“A lot of planning has gone into the improvements being carried out by tradesman who are all local to the hotel and the area of Pitlochry and due to its age, everything has had to be replaced to an exacting standard to preserve the history of the building. Our hotel offers a warm welcome to guests from all over the world and we are incredibly excited to futureproof Fisher’s Hotel so it can continue its heritage for another 200 years.

“We are looking forward to welcoming new and returning guests to enjoy our new upgraded venue.”
