Accommodation Description:
Tucked away in secluded wooded grounds in the highland town of Pitlochry, this beautiful early Victorian House is a boutique-style Bed and Breakfast, providing a unique blend of the traditional with the luxury of contemporary design, City chic in a rural setting. The individually designed deluxe rooms offer six foot beds and fabulous fabrics and furnishings. Minutes away from quality Restaurants, Pitlochry Theatre and The Dam and Salmon Ladder, and a short drive to nearby Distilleries, Blair Castle and the memorable shopping experience of The House of Bruar.

Ideally situated for fishing, golf, walking and cycling. Craigatin House is a totally Non Smoking Perthshire Bed and Breakfast. Built by Pitlochry's most famous doctor, Dr William Stuart Irvine, Craigatin House and Courtyard was the doctor's family home and surgery.

Bord 23rd may 1812, Dr Irvine was the youngest of eight children and began his medical career as the first full-time doctor in Pitlochry in 1833 at the young age of 21. He would have found the Pitlochry area isolated, Gaelic speaking and very widespread. His district spread as far as Rannoch, Glenshee and Strathardle.

He'd have travelled from Craigatin over wild moorland without roads to reach patients in remote farmhouses with unknowln illnesses. There were no hospitals then so Craigatin House would have served as a place to perform such things as midwifery, smallpox vaccinations and amputations on a regular basis. The doctor raised five children in Craigatin which also housed the apothecary, dispensing medicines through a window which now forms part of the kitchen.

The doctor died at Craigatin in October 1893, aged 81 years.
