Tennis superstar Andy Murray has seen his share of swish hotels during his career – and in 2014 decided to open his own. Just outside his home town of Dunblane in the Highlands.

Cromlix is a handsome, turreted Victorian mansion surrounded by 34 acres of carefully tended grounds – and a tennis court, of course. Purple and green (Wimbledon’s colours), it’s the only reference to its famous owner.

Inside it’s sumptuous Highland house-living, with a grand games room and whisky snug, stags heads on the walls, wood-paneling, fine antiques and opulent fabrics. There are 15 old-school-traditional bedrooms and suites (named after famous Scots such as Robert the Bruce) and a strikingly contemporary Chez Roux restaurant.

This is one for those wanting a taste of a high-end Highland house-party.

Surrounding area

The hotel is rural and secluded, just three miles from the pretty town of Dunblane with its medieval cathedral – and gold post box dedicated to Andy.

Cradled by the central Highland’s rolling hills, it’s just a caber’s throw from historic attractions such as Stirling Castle, the Wallace monument and Bannockburn, where Robert the Bruce defeated the English King Edward II in battle.
