The owners of the five-star hotel in Perthshire have been working on the redevelopment of their stable block and railway cottage throughout lockdown.

Now the luxury hotel has two new special options for guests looking to experience staycations in Scotland. Last October the hotel launched their new Steading Apartment focused on large groups and families. The stable block, the railway cottage and the Steading Apartment have all been designed by owner Anne MacDonald.




Owner Anne Macdonald said:

"The redevelopment of our stable block and railway cottage is finally complete. I am delighted we are now welcoming guests into the additional seven rooms we have created on the estate at The Old Manse of Blair, Hotel & Restaurant. The Railway Cottage, themed around the Black Island Platform. Black Island featured as a private platform for forestry workers and the Canadian Forestry Corporation were based here during WWII.




"I uncovered the story whilst researching the development and decided, given its proximity, it would be a lovely story to share with guests. The bespoke furnishings show the axels of the steam trains and the lanterns used to light up their camp.




"We have named our fully accessible Stables Suite, Schehallion after a local Munro. After all, at times it certainly felt like we had a mountain to climb!"




There are two ensuite individual entry bedrooms with wet rooms, aptly named The Signal Box and The Ticket Office.




Rates start from £335 per night including breakfast, and you can enjoy 10% off when you book direct and quote summer offer.




We congratulate Anne for the stunning result and wish the entire team at The Old Manse of Blair the very best.
