“The Claymore proved to be an OUTSTANDING bed and breakfast inn”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

First things first ... visiting Scotland and experiencing it natural and historical treasures while engaging its wonderful people should be on your bucket list. What an amazing two weeks! We arrived with another couple on September 13 and spent our first two nights at the Claymore Hotel in Pitlochry Scotland. Simply said: A beautiful inn with sculptured gardens. Very clean! Pristine condition! Modern conveniences. Very comfortable beds. Amazing breakfast. Everything exceeded our expectations. And best of all, the inn is owned and operated by two extremely charming hosts - Graeme and Diane. They made our visit special ... so much so that we gave them a sincere invitation to visit us in Houston Texas which we do hope they will accept. Pitlochry is a beautiful town and even though the Highland Games held there in September was the attraction that brought us there, it was obvious as we arrived that Pitlochry is a destination town at any time of year. Great restaurants, shops and great, friendl people. We WILL return. Thank you Graeme and Diane from your Texas friends.

Room Tip: It is a bed and breakfast and all rooms are different ... book well in advance to hear Diane describ...

We booked a superior room, all very last minute. When we arrived we were told 'our room' had been getting a makeover and wasn't quite ready. We were taken out to the apartments at the back of the hotel instead. The one bed apart was lovely, it was a nice treat and very relaxing. Lovely and clean and wonderfully furnished. The owners are very nice personable people. Breakfast in the conservatory was very tasty. We can't recommend highly enough and we would definitely return. There is lots of local info available, if you can fit in a theatre trip also, well worth doing.

We would recommend the Claymore to anyone looking for an idyllic place to stay. Perfect location. Best two nights sleep we had in ages. Our room was very spacious, cosy, well equipped clean and homely. Excellent breakfast menu choices, though I wasn't brave enough to try Diane's porridge with whiskey! Maybe next time ;) Graham gave us lots of helpful info on where to go and what to do etc. nothing was too much trouble. The overall balance was just perfect and we would certainly stay here if we were in the area again.

Just spent 1 night here with my elderly Mum. Diane & Greame couldn't have been more pleasant. A lovely couple with a lovely business. Very clean and a beautiful conservatory to eat a wonderful breakfast in. Well done. I wish there were more like you. Will tell anyone going to Pitlochry where to stay. Thank you.

We got the last room as Pitlochry was packed for the Enchanted Forest. Graham & Diane are charming people with a lovely house. We booked for 2 nights, but loved the house & the area so we stayed for 4. Excellent full Scottish or Continental breakfasts, and very high standards throughout. We will recommend to friends & family.

Room Tip: We stayed in the annex, room 11, which is spacious & has the most comfortable queen bed of our j...
