Knock Castle is now a real success story. Scotland can be proud of this fabulous location and the effort that the owners have put into restoring the Castle to it’s former glory.
Set in the hills of the Strathearn valley, Knock Castle and Spa used to be the home of Scottish shipping magnate Lady MacBrayne. It is now owned by the Henderson family, who have successfully turned this hotels fortunes around.
Bold ideas, such as the panoramic rooftop restaurant – The Stag`s View make this more than just a hotel. The opulent bedrooms range from executive through to luxury castle suite as well as a separate self contained lodge within the grounds of the castle.
Recently voted from a number of prestigious hotels throughout Scotland, Knock Castle Hotel and Spa in Perthshire scooped four awards at The Scottish Hotel Awards 2010, which took place at Prestonfield House on the 25th April.
Winning the Turnaround Medal, Hospitality Gold Medal, Real and Local Food Gold Medal and Romantic Package 2010, the Henderson family are said to be thrilled with their success.
Scottish Contemporary would best describe Head Chef and General Manager Jason Hendersons cooking. His insistence on only using the very best, local ingredients shines through. Their team of Chefs take passion in offering a carefully chosen varied menu of culinary delights with something to suit everyone. The exquisite cuisine is complemented by an extensive wine list including a number of rare wines.
Another real strength is the customer service. Staff are always available and deal with customers needs swiftly and comfortably.
The magnificent Knock Castle And Spa has a lot going for it. The proud heritage, the delightful food and the totally relaxing Spa. For me, the real clincher is the Stags View, The exclusive rooftop restaurant with stunning views of Perthshire and beyond – complete with an outside terrace, open plan kitchen and lounge area.
