Hilton Dunkeld house hotel Nov 13, 2009
What a great place to be! Although not a party town whatsoever, this property is nestled nicely on 100 hectres (something like that) of plush Scottish landscape. 20 yards from a prime salmon fishing river, and various outdoor activities including traps/skeet shooting, archery, and the wonderful Land Rover off road driving experience, this little gem in the woods is quite a nice getaway from the busy city life. The commute through the gates up the main driveway is nothing but spectacular, with the city cathedral on the left and a herd of 150 wild deer in the valley on the left, as you make your way further into the property, all existence of civiliazation is left behind and as you part your way through the low rolling fog, it feels as if you are entering a forbidden valley in jurassic park. The hotel itself is nothing spectacular as it's a 1900's old cottage like building re-painted some 20 years back to a pasty white exterior. The interior is warming and cozy with the smell of chimney fire as you enter the lobby. Some rooms are newly reno'ed so it gives quite the modern touch and comfort you'd expect from a Hilton (although most UK hiltons will be far from this expectation). The food is mediocre, however i found the mint flavored peas to be extremely interesting as the herbs and mint combo made the peas taste exactly like green apples in my mouth. It was the weirdest sensation. Do take a stroll along the river here however, in the early late fall morning, the frost makes the place look like a winter wonderland without the snow. Bring your guns if you like to practice your trapshooting here. If you dont have one, dont worry, the onsite gunsmith is the pinnacle in custom gunsmiths in the country. You'll need a hefty chequebook for this though as their guns are truely amazing with a hefty pricetag as well.
