About the Hotel

Lovingly restored, Fonab Castle draws inspiration from its historic past and breathtaking surroundings, overlooking Loch Faskally. Enjoy a drink on the terrace before a 3 AA Rosette awarded meal or simply sit back and enjoy the tranquility of the stunning landscape.


Each of the 42 rooms and suites, including the indulgent Penthouse, have been designed to be individual in nature, so that there is a seamless quality to the blend of modern furnishings and original castle features. Guests adore taking in the breathtaking views from their rooms, some of which include Loch Faskally and the impressive Ben Vrackie.


The Brasserie serves an updated, classically British menu of seasonal dishes for a casual lunch or dinner. There is also the sumptuously designed, 3 AA Rosette awarded Sandeman's Restaurant where guests can savour the innovative dishes in their seven-course tasting menu.

A new addition to Fonab is luxury Pod Dining. Each Pod offers adjustable heating, mood lighting, personal music system, service button and your very own host to look after you and your guests.


Located in its own exclusive building just steps from the main house, the Spa has a 15-metre swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and four treatment rooms.
