This large country estate in Perthshire (about an hour's drive from Edinburgh and Glasgow) stands out for its almost overwhelming array of on- and off-site activities, including horse-riding and watersports, earning it consistent placings in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for best family hotels in the UK. Other inducements include an indoor pool, a softplay area, free childcare for ages 2-12 years, a cinema and a spectacular spa, perfect for adult-only time.

Accommodation comprises both hotel rooms and self-catering options, the latter being dog-friendly. The lodges and cabins were all recently upgraded with some accommodation sleeping up to 14 people; this a brilliant option for holidaying with extended families, other families or grandparents.


Crieff Hydro is about an hour's drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh, and about 50km from Dundee Airport.
