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.
