Scottish Golf Tour 2020 : Good Hotel Guide part 2
Set in beautiful countryside and located just three miles from Dunblane, Cromlix House occupies 34 acres of grounds.
The original Victorian mansion was built on the site in 1874 as a family residence for the son of The Earl of Kinnoul. The House was converted in 1981, operating as a country house hotel until financial problems forced its closure in February 2012.
This sad situation could easily have seen the end of this historic building. However when Scottish tennis legend and “ local lad “ Sir Andy Murray announced that he had acquired Cromlix in 2013, it heralded a fantastic future for the hotel and its staff.
Following an extensive refurbishment programme The Cromlix re-opened in 2014 as a luxury 15 bedroom five star destination. Its recent win as the 2019 luxury country house hotel of the year at the Scottish Hotel Awards has firmly cemented its position as one of the top hotels in the region.
Cromlix House boasts a Chez Roux restaurant , reception hall, two drawing rooms, conservatory, dining room and meeting rooms
The hotel is managed on behalf of Sir Andy by ICMI who already look after eight other renowned properties around Scotland, including Inverlochy Castle ( near Fort William ) and Greywalls Hotel in Gullane which overlooks the Open Championship links at Muirfield.
