Crieff Hydro celebrated its reopening today with the sound of bagpipes.

Hotel CEO Stephen Leckie and his sons, Richard and Charlie, played the pipes alongside daughter Louisa on the snare drum at the front of the iconic hotel to welcome guests as doors reopened following the easing of lockdown measures.

The Leckie family were joined by 15 year old Crieff local and award-winning highland dancer Ellie Closs, who performed to their rendition of Scotland the Brave.

The Crieff Hydro family of hotels includes six other venues, Peebles Hydro, Murraypark Hotel, The Park, The Isles of Glencoe, Ballachulish Hotel and Kingshouse Hotel.

A special welcome back holiday bundle is available for guests, but a number of changes have been made to the hydropathic services due to the pandemic.

Enhanced cleaning has been put in place, as well as social distancing, staff training and personal protective equipment.

A message on the hotel’s website said: “Some of the guidance means that we can’t offer everything we used to – at least for now – and some things like dining will be a bit different. This is constantly changing and we promise to keep you updated on what’s open, closed or different.”
