private estate wonderfully situated east of the settlement of
Kinloch Rannoch and between beautiful Loch Tummel and much wilder
Loch Rannoch, Dunalastair is set amidst one of the most scenic
areas of Scotland.
Dunalastair was the name of the original estate, formerly
the seat of the Struan Robertsons, Chiefs of Clan Donnachaidh,
or Duncan, descended from the Celtic Mormaers of Atholl. Much
excitement has occurred here. Of all the clans, The Robertsons
of Struan were amongst the most loyal to the Stewarts.
The area is known and loved by naturalists, and there are opportunities
for hill climbing, walking, fishing , biking, white water rafting
and sailing, or just strolling down by the shores of the loch
and taking in the peaceful atmosphere and beautiful scenery..
Dunalastair is wonderfully located for visits to Aberfeldy,
Pitlochry, Killiecrankie, Glen Lyon, Blair Castle, the Falls
of Bruar, The Queen's View and so much more - even the evening
theatre productions in Pitlochry. It also makes a wonderful
relaxing base from which to visit Dunkeld, Perth, St Andrews
or even Balmoral and Royal Deeside.
The Dunalastair Hotel has a long tradition of real 'Highland
hospitality', having been built as an inn soon after the
Battle of Culloden by the returning soldiers. It remained as
such for well over 100 years until its development into a hotel
at the end of the nineteenth century under the guiding eye of
Major General Alastair Macdonald, Commander of the forces.
