We stayed two nights at Dunkeld House on a recent trip to Scotland. The location on the river is stunning and so peaceful. The rhododendrons were in bloom, which added beauty to the grounds. The rooms are decorated with a hunt theme and are well...More

Hello, thank you for leaving us such a lovely review! We hope we can welcome you again soon.
Even with bad weather, or just Scottish weather ;P this place is magical. Dunkeld area is incredibly coloured with the autumn tones. Lots of things to do!
The hotel estate is fantastic, lots of rooms and the spa, gym, bar are just great; however, it...More

It'll take you just over an hour to get to St Andrews. It might be a bit quicker on the backroads, but personally I'd ignore them and go via Perth then dual carriageway to Dundee, along the waterfront, over the Tay Bridge, and into St Andrews. If you go at rush hour in the morning (or evening) allow an extra 20-30 minutes.
There's a large free car park on the right hand side as you enter St Andrews on the A91 - just turn right at the first roundabout you hit in St Andrews itself and it's beside the University science campus, an easy 5-10 minute walk to town centre. It does get busy in the middle of the day though.
Don't know about car rentals, but you could maybe try contacting Enterprise Car Rentals in Perth and see if they could do flexible pick up and drop off? The main hotel itself, as opposed to lodges, isn't a Hilton anymore but I presume you know that.
If you have a rental car then Dundee itself is worth a visit for a day to the RRS Discovery (Scott of the Antarctic etc) and the new V&A museum opens in Autumn 2018.
If you like walking then The Hermitage is 5 mins drive from hotel and not too strenuous. Also several other pretty walks nearby.
Heading south from Dunkeld, Perth is about 20 minutes drive away and has some nice restaurants, principally Dean's at Let's Eat which has been highly reputed for many years.
Heading north from Dunkeld, Pitlochry is 20 minutes drive and a bit touristy (lots of coach parties!) but actually ok for a half day visit with nice cafes, and I can't think of a better place to buy a mug, tartan rug, CD of fiddle music or woolly jumper!
If you have deep pockets then House of Bruar is a bit further north and very nice...not cheap though! Blair Atholl is about 30 minutes north of Dunkeld with nice gardens and a historic house that's open to public and definitely worth a visit on a sunny day.
All in all it's a very pretty part of the world and it would make a good base for St Andrews as long as you aren't going to commute there each day and don't mind the drive on the days you do go over. If you want to see more than just Dunkeld though, then a car is essential for the duration of your visit.

I think it was November that we visited for Afternoon Tea, and used the swimming pool, my husband used the sauna and steam room. The changing facilities were lovely, ample storage, good hair dryers, very clean. Pool area clean and warm. And afternoon tea was excellent. Didn't have any treatments but it certainly looked pleasant.

No, Hilton Dunkeld was bought out and it’s now privately owned. The owners have spent millions on it bringing it up to date. It’s retained its old world look but is so much better. It’s in the most beautiful location. I can highly recommend it.
