The Strathardle Inn - Discover Scotland

Enjoy a relaxing break with us overlooking the River Ardle at our family run 18th century drover’s inn in the rural, picturesque Perthshire Highlands: coal fires, cosy bar, Michelin guide recommended restaurant.

We are ideally located to explore the beautiful Strathardle Glen and the 64 mile Cateran Trail, whist also being central for exploring the Highlands and all it has to offer.

We are near to Pitlochry, a delightful Victorian town and popular tourist destination at the heart of the Highlands. On our doorstep we have the finest country sports estates, fishing, golfing, cycling, hill walking and outdoor activities that Scotland has to offer. In the winter months we are just 25 minutes drive from the Glenshee ski centre that offers the UK's most extensive skiing and snowboarding facilities.

Pitlochry's Festival Theatre offers performances throughout the year and the multi-award winning Enchanted Forest sound and light show returns for another exciting year. Scone Palace holds events all year round, including the Rewind Festival, Scottish Game Fair and The Great Scottish Brave Harvest Chilli Festival 2013 to name but a few.


Only 25 minutes drive from Glenshee, which takes its name from the Gaelic 'Glen of the Fairies', certainly offers one of the most magical skiing experiences in Scotland. The largest resort in the UK, it covers an area of more than 2,000 acres extending across four mountains and three valleys and boasting 21 lifts and tows. Glenshee offers a choice of 36 runs comprising 40 kms of pisted snow. The longest single run, Glas Maol, extends to a fantastic 2 kms of skiing, while the extensive snow-making facilities means the centre is
often open for longer.

Glenshee's impressive 22 lifts and 36 runs offer an amazing diversity of natural terrain for all standards of skiers and snowboarders. There are lots of options to choose from - you can join a class, go private, hire an instructor for your group, get into race training or simply take advantage of one of our great value package deals.

Open daily from 8.30am - 5.00pm.
