The Westlands Hotel

Owned and run by the same family for over 30 years, the Westlands Hotel rests in its own grounds of 1.75 acres to the west of Dunblane in rural Perthshire. It was built for the Christie towel family in 1902, the year after Edward VII succeeded Victoria to the throne, and forms a splendid example of Edwardian architecture.


Famed over the years for its warm and friendly atmosphere, comfortable bedrooms and outstanding cuisine, the Westlands has an attractive lounge bar offering daily bar meals and a wide selection of wines, beers and spirits including some excellent malt whiskies.

All comfortable and individually furnished bedrooms are fully equipped with en suite facilities, colour television and tea / coffee hospitality tray. Most rooms enjoy a pleasing outlook over the gardens and surrounding countryside.

The elegant dining room provides the finest Scottish foods together with a select wine list and opens onto the function suite where 150 guests can be easily accommodated for weddings, conferences and parties.

The games room bar provides the warm friendly conviviality of a traditional Highland hostelry and offers guests a chance to 'meet the locals' and play a game of pool. In the summer months, visitors can enjoy dining al fresco in the extensive gardens where there is an attractive play area for children.

The Westlands Hotel can arrange shooting and fishing and corporate country pursuits including clay pigeon shooting and falconry. There is a secure gun room and game larder, together with drying facilities and dog kennels.

Within the hotel is the 'Joie de Vie' Beauty Saloon, offering a wide range of treatments for guests and non residents, including facials and make-up, manicure, waxing, tanning and massage.

What to do...

Situated in the very heart of Scotland within an easy 30 minutes drive of the major cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, Dunblane lies in the historic centre of the country, close to Stirling and its castle, the famous Wallace Monument and the Bannockburn Heritage Centre, all of which serve to recall the heroic exploits of William 'Braveheart' Wallace and King Robert the Bruce in founding the Scottish nation.

The famous scenery of the Trossachs is a short distance away and in addition to walking and sightseeing, the surrounding area provides ample opportunity for shooting and fishing which can be arranged by the hotel.

Golf is a prime attraction, with a fine 18-hole course in Dunblane and many other courses within a short drive, including Gleneagles and St Andrews.

Dunblane has its famous 13th century Cathedral, Doune its splendid 15th century Castle and a few miles away lies Scotland's only Safari Park at Blair Drummond..
