Absolutely Fonabulous!

Fonab Castle Hotel & Spa (also known as Port-na-Craig House) is a truly special, luxury five-star Scottish experience. Located on the wooded banks of Loch Faskally, Perthshire and just a short walk from the heart of the historic town of Pitlochry.


This four-storey mansion was originally built in 1892 in the Scots Baronial style for the Sandeman family, of Port & Sherry fame, to be their home. During World War I & II, the house was used as a British Red Cross auxiliary hospital (WWI) caring for wounded soldiers and occupied by school children who were sent from Glasgow to get away from the bombing (WWII).

The house was sold to Scottish Hydro in 1946 and then to the present owners, Jed & Joanne Clark in 2002. The first subsequent event to be held at the hotel was the wedding of their daughter Becky, with the hotel officially opening in July 2013.


Since opening in 2013, Fonab has become a popular destination to enjoy friendly, attentive service, breath-taking views, exquisite food and luxurious accommodation. Whether you are visiting for an overnight stay, time in the spa or a delicious meal in Sandemans… Fonab has something for everyone.

Immerse yourself in the Thermal suite with steam room, sauna and aroma relax room with eucalyptus and lavender or while away the hours in the 15 metre pool or spa pool. Treat yourself to a hot stone massage, facial or a luxury manicure or pedicure in the Nail Salon.


Outdoors in the heart of Scotland with real hospitality, clear sparkling air, beautiful scenery, rich clan history, fine food, plenty of space and lots to see and do. Pitlochry is set in spectacular scenery and is ideally located for touring Highland Perthshire. From white water rafting on the River Tay & River Tummel, canyoning in the Falls of Bruar, off-road driving in one of the latest Land Rover models, quad trekking, clay pigeon shooting and more available.


Or create memories to last a lifetime with a tailored private safari. Take the wheel as you travel through forests, mountains and moors on a private hill or use your Safari Ranger’s local knowledge and expertise. Keep your eyes peeled to see the majestic red deer, famous grouse, the elusive mountain hare or the soaring golden eagle as you travel through forests, mountains and moors on private hill tracks.
