The opening in Pitlochry of the UK's first 100% vegan hotel is surely evidence that luxury hospitality in the Highlands has broken free from its huntin' fishing' shootin' cachet. Saorsa 1875 is located in a Victorian baronial house and has 11 stylishly designed boutique rooms with the ethical, vegan ethos evident all the way to toiletries and bedding. The dining room and cocktail baroffers carefully crafted five-course menus served around a communal dining table. For now, the restaurant is open only to those staying, although the McLaren-Stewart family behind the venture hope to be able to make it available to non-residents soon.
- Open since: 2019 June
