Hotel on top US list
A top Strathearn resort has made it on to an American list of the best hotels in Scotland.
US News and World Report’s travel section drew up the list of the 15 best hotels in Scotland for Stateside travellers, with Gleneagles Hotel coming second on the list.
The five-star local resort was beaten by Prestonfield House in Edinburgh to the top spot, and was recommended for its commitment to protecting its natural surroundings and habitats, as well as for its three championship golf courses, equestrian school, spa and two-Michelin star restaurant headed up by Andrew Fairlie.
The hotel was also recommended for its memb e r s h i p o f the prestigious Leaders’ Club, allowing leisure travellers to stay in luxury hotels and resorts all over the world.
Fonab Cas t l e n e a r Pitlochry was the only other resort in Perth and Kinross to make the list.
