Fonab Castle Hotel

Fonab Castle is located in Pitlochry in Perthshire, Scotland. Built in the Scottish Baronial Style in 1892, the castle is situated on a wooded hillside above Loch Faskally. Fonab Castle was built for Lt. Colonel George Glas Sandeman, grandson of George G. Sandeman Sons and Company Ltd, who were cotton merchants and wine importers. The castle was constructed using Dumfriesshire red sandstone and boasts a corner stair tower and a small tower corbelled, both with conical slate caps. The interior represents the 19thcentury with paneled halls, plasterwork, timber and stone fireplaces, and a billiard room in the attic with a hammerbeam roof. From 1915 and 1918 the castle served as a hospital caring for wounded soldiers during WWI. The castle remained a family residence until 1946 when the property was sold to the Scotland Hydro-Electric Board. By 1971, the castle was left abandoned before it was converted into a hotel. The four-story mansion opened into a luxury hotel in 2013 with 23 rooms and four suites. The Fonab Castle Hotel offers fine dining, a luxury spa, and off road experiences by Land Rover. #Castles #Scotland #FonabCastle #FonabCastleHotel #Pitlochry #Perthshire
