ABOUT US

W E L C O M E

Nested on the banks of Loch Earn, in Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, only an hour’s drive from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth. Achray House is a Restaurant with Rooms, and home to Lochview Restaurant. With nine accompanying bedrooms and one self-catering lodge, our main focus is all about producing genuine Scottish hospitality. We are the perfect base to explore the Southern Highlands, Scotland’s West Coast, and historic towns like St Andrews, Dunkeld, and Oban.

P A S T

The exact origin of the name, Achray House, is unknown. Built as a stately country home in the late 1800s, it was ‘Victoria Cottage’ for a while, in honor of Queen Victoria, who commented on it when passing St Fillans en route to the Highlands. But not long after, it became ‘Achray House’. This picture dates to 1895, when the main section was rebuilt. In the 1900s Achray House became a guest house, and later a hotel. One recent guest remembered older relations visiting the Achray House for a holiday decades ago, all the way from Crieff with their beloved cow in tow!

P R E S E N T

The original building was extended in the 1990s, adding a wing, the conservatory and the lodge. Over the past two years we modernised the rooms, public areas, and the lodge, but the original features and the country-manor feel remains, while emphasising modern comforts. Loch Earn continues to be one of the magic ingredients in Achray House’s charm.
