The Birnam Hotel in Dunkeld has not had a dull life. From the Great Fire of 1912 to visits by both the King of Spain and a French Empress, it has had its fair share of red letter days.
You don’t need blue blood to stay at the Birnam Hotel these days but it still provides the comfort, warm welcome and tranquillity which attracted the European nobility all those years ago.
Soak up the atmosphere at this Perthshire gem with today’s Big Deal on an overnight bed and breakfast stay at the Birnam Hotel.
Scottish Baronial style
Built in the Scottish Baronial style, Dunkeld’s Birnam Hotel stands on the south bank of the River Tay, Scotland’s premier salmon fishing
Literature lovers may be tickled to learn that the hotel is close to the Birnam Oak, the last remnant of Birnam Wood made famous in Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
The offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay, Sun-Thurs, in a double or twin room at the Birnam Hotel.
The rooms all have en suite facilities, satellite television, direct dial telephone and tea & coffee making facilities. A full Scottish breakfast is included in the deal – the perfect set-up for a day exploring the Perthshire countryside.
As part of the offer, guests can also enjoy an elegant afternoon cream tea on the day of arrival or day of departure.
Guests who choose to take other meals at the hotel will be spoiled for choice. The hotel’s Oak Restaurant offers sophisticated dining which makes the most of local produce while the Scots Bar serves more informal bar meals.
Alternatively, take a stroll across the courtyard to the Birnam Inn which serves freshly baked pizza, pasta, salads and grills.
Regrettably, neither the King of Spain nor the Empress of France had the opportunity to leave their thoughts of Birnam Hotel on TripAdvisor so here’s one from a more recent guest:
‘Excellent stay, great, friendly staff. Just had 3 nights at the Birnam Hotel…Grand looking hotel in a quiet village location, staff very friendly, especially Margaret in the Scots bar. We ate once in the Scots bar and twice in the Birnam Inn (across the road). Food in both was very good choice and quality. Rooms were sizable and comfortable with all frills including TV, tea and coffee, iron, good shower and clean bathroom. Breakfast was very good and hearty. Staff was very friendly and chatty with us both during our stay which made us feel very welcome without being intrusive.
All in all a brilliant stay and excellent value for money. Will most definitely use again.’
