History 
 
Built for the Sandeman family of Port & Sherry fame to be their home in 1892. During WWI the house was used as a Red Cross hospital, a plaque by the fireplace in the quiet room reflects this. In WWII, the house was occupied by school children who were sent from Glasgow to get away from the bombing. The house was sold to Scottish Hydro in 1946 when Scottish Hydro planned the Pitlochry Dam & Fish ladder.
 
The present owners, Jed & Joanne Clark purchased the castle in 2002. The Fonab Castle Hotel was eventually opened on the 10th July 2013. All are beautifully decorated and are fitted with the latest in comfort and technology.
