• History of Bridge of Locahy Hotel

Our History

The Bridge of Lochay hotel building dates back to 1765 where it started life as a coaching inn located beside the Toll at the Lochay Bridge.

For our 250th birthday in 2015 we spent time researching locally and at the National Library of Scotland for any more information on previous owners, stories and pictures. We unearthed a number of interesting pieces which are on display in the hotel in our Birthday Album.

There are many original features still available to see in the hotel although of course we have modernised to ensure all comforts are available for today's guests. For example the original stone marking the origin of the building in 1765 is just outside the front door and there is also the original old fashioned 'bell system' for each room (there were a great many more bedrooms and no en suite bathrooms in those days!) just inside the entrance hall.

For movie buffs - The first of the 39 Steps films (based on the 1915 John Buchan novel from starring Robert Donat) - made in 1935 features the hotel and part of the movie was actually filmed here.

The hotel has a traditional feel in keeping with it's history but is a warm, cosy, friendly and comfortable place to enjoy the stunning surrounding countryside.
