The heart of Perthshire. Miles away from everyday.

Roll up our drive and into a different world: fresh air, friendly people, epic views.

Bring the dog. Bring the kids. Get everyone outdoors, in the pool, round the table – do stuff together, or do your own thing. And it begins here, with that first flutter of excitement: planning it all.

Play Time

Are you the sort of person who likes to do it all? Good luck. With over 60 activities, that’s a serious challenge. Time to choose.

FREE Go for a whirl at one of our ceilidhs, or play to win at the family quiz. Hunker down for a few hours in our cinema or let battle commence on our giant chessboard. Splash about at the pool, or sweat out at the gym – the treadmill shows no mercy.

You could fill days with this stuff. Then, of course, there’s 900 acres of pristine Perthshire countryside to explore. And what about the kids? Book any room direct with us and you get up to two sessions of free childcare, every day. No. That’s not a typo.

Admit it: you’ve always wanted to say something cool, then roar off on a quad bike, gallop into the sunset, or thunk an arrow into the bullseye. Hasta la Hydro, baby.

That’s what we’re here for. Glide through the woods on a Segway, or zip over the treetops on an Aloft! adventure. Saddle up a horse, or get your eye in at archery, air rifles, and clays. Go for a round of golf – or show off your baseline heroics on the tennis courts. You’ll find it all – and more – here.

Welcome To Our World

So our main entrance isn’t quite a magic portal – but it might as well be. Glide through the door at Crieff Hydro and you’re shrugging off the everyday, into a world where everything is just right. Like Narnia without the white witch.

So come in. Make yourself at home – just don’t eat the Turkish delight. (We’re kidding obviously, it’s delicious.)

Your first choice is simple. Do you want to cosy up in the hotel, where our team will make sure you don’t have to lift a finger? Or will you find your home-from-home in one of our self-catering lodges, complete with a 900 acre back garden? (OK. We lied when we said the choice was simple.)

BIG Country – two sessions of fun-filled childcare, included when you book direct
Swimming pool – with plenty of foam noodles to go round
Soft play – multi-coloured mayhem for kids
Victorian gardens – meet Cocoa & Fudge, our friendly rabbits
Cinema – film nights are on us
Entertainment – in the mood for a live band? That’s lucky.

The best bit? It’s all included. Just remember to book that spot in BIG Country.


So what’s it going to be? The grilled asparagus and the pan-seared seabass, or hot dogs and burgers for the family? Wherever you eat, you’ll find local, seasonal ingredients put to good use in menus that travel from the Highlands to the heel of Italy. Dig in.
