A hotel in Scotland is to undergo a £2m renovation, following a fire in 2016 during Scotland’s most lucrative trading period, Hogmanay.
Fishers, which dates back to 1830, was damaged last year and as a result owners The Castle Collection will invest £2m into refurbishing the property, which will see the creation of 30 new rooms.
The new additions will take the total room count at the property to 140.
A renovation throughout the current bedrooms has been ongoing since January 2017, with many of the original features including period fireplaces being re-instated.
Along with changes to the hotel interior, a new 150-cover restaurant will be unveiled, which will include an indoor Zen garden with glass roof spanning all floors of the hotel.
Due to be complete by the end of the year, the revamped hotel will continue to offer all day dining and drinking in a relaxed atmosphere.
Brian Wishart, general manager of Fisher’s Hotel, said; “Fisher’s Hotel has a strong reputation for being one of Pitlochry’s best hotels among tourists to Perthshire and this investment will allow us to enhance the fantastic experience we already offer to visitors.
“The fire was a real catalyst in bringing the refurb project into fruition and our guests have been incredibly supportive of our efforts in ensuring the future of this iconic building.
“We are looking forward to welcoming new and returning guests to enjoy our new upgraded venue.”
