Dining at Fonab Castle Pitlochry
Fonab Castle a Scottish baronial castle, once the home of the Sandeman port and sherry dynasty. Today a brand new 5 star hotel overlooking Loch Faskally offering both formal and informal dining. Opened in 2013 at ‘no expense-spared’ by the Clark family, who are dedicated to make it one of Scotland's top hotels.
Corona UPDATE 14th July 2020 - "I just wanted to advise you our re-opening date is Friday, 28th August 2020.
I’m not sure if you are aware, however we are actually currently taking advantage of the enforced government closure due to Covid19, and the owners are spending £1.7m on some hotel improvements. This includes extending out & completely redesigning our Brasserie restaurant and upstairs lounge which in turn will create more space for social distancing. A new, bigger kitchen is going in which will make it easier to meet demands, and the reception area is also being extended out a little & reconfigured. Our indoor pool has already been completely stripped out and re-tiled and we’re just waiting on delivery of a couple of outdoor hot tubs and hydro pool which will have a decking area & fire pit as well. Once all this is done (completion date end August) there are plans to put in a gym but that may not be until October time. I’m sure all these improvements will be welcomed by our guests and our hope is to elevate what is already a beautiful property to something even more fabulous!

The Fonab Castle's aim is to become famous for their superb range of wines and champagnes, so they have taken great care in choosing a wine merchant who would look after the whole process from source to their cellar.
Corney and Barrow has a pedigree of one of the longest established wine Merchants in the UK. (Founded by a group of prominent Ayrshire merchants and landowners in 1766, Whighams of Ayr. In 1994 Whighams merged with Corney and Barrows Scottish operation. The 1766 built cellars are still in use today).
