Situated amid the rolling green hills of Perthshire, fans of boutique luxury will love this sumptuous, 400-year-old Scottish Manor House. The former home of Lord Lynedoch, the hotel is at the centre of a 365-acre estate and is both easy to reach and hard to leave – just 3 miles outside Perth and an hour from the Central Belt. It's the perfect place for a spot of Scottish highland hospitality, and is home to no less than two golf courses, a good restaurant and all manner of other activities. The current owners have also spent £3m on refurbishment since they acquired the property in late 2016 so there’s really no better time to visit.

The red sandstone castle may date from 1664, but the interiors have a warm, contemporary feel. There are 40 rooms – 26 in the main house and 14 pet-friendly suites in the more modern Balvaird House. All the rooms are individually designed in a contemporary style with high-quality beds and bed linen and refurbished bathrooms with Scottish toiletries.  Whether you choose the Snug rooms, the picture-window-lined Estate rooms or the spacious Deluxe rooms, you'll have a king-size bed, flatscreen TV, tea- and coffee-making facilities, complimentary mineral water – and, the star of the show, Tunnock's Caramel Wafers as an extra treat.

There's fine dining in the hotel's 2 AA-rosette Eòlas restaurant (pronounced Olass), where breakfast is served in the morning before being transformed into a super-chic award-winning modern Scottish dining experience in the evening for both residents and non-residents. Laidback lunchtimes can be enjoyed in the Cairns bar (think burgers, fish and chips, real ales) while Afternoon Tea is served between 12 pm and 4 pm daily in Barossa, the hotel's cosy bar, where the fireplace ensures you're likely to call by for a cocktail at sundown too.

If you're travelling with clubs, the estate has two golf courses to choose between; the Murrayshall championship 18-hole course and the 9-hole Lynedoch course. You can take your pick from a number of activities: hiring bikes, booking a guided walk up nearby Kinnoull Hill, whisky-tasting or simply heading off into the estate for a hike with a pre-prepared picnic – there are two woodland walks on the estate to choose from. Meanwhile, those after some indulgent R&R can book into the treatment room at the newly refurbished gatehouse, where Scottish seaweed-based Ishga products are used for facials and massages. The hotel has submitted plans for a £30 million expansion plan which will include the construction of a new driving range, a £15 million spa and leisure club with two additional restaurants, as well as lodges, glamping pods and an additional 50 hotel bedrooms.
