We may be Scotland’s oldest trading company, but there’s nothing Victorian about our approach to business. As well as exploring new opportunities within Crieff Hydro, we always have an eye out for new commercial ventures.

But whatever avenue we explore, we never forget that much of our success is owed to our talented and enthusiastic team. Over 500 people work at Crieff Hydro, and it’s their knowledge and experience that impresses our guests and brings them back to the hotel time and again.

Hydro History

It sounds a bit strange now, but to the Victorians, swimming in freezing spring water was just what the doctor ordered. So it goes that in 1868, under the management of physician Thomas H. Meikle, we opened our doors as The Strathearn Hydropathic Establishment Company.

Of course, a lot’s changed since then (we’ve got a catchier name for a start). And the £40 million we’ve invested in recent years really shows. But what hasn’t changed is the lineage behind the hotel.

After 140 years in business, Crieff Hydro is now managed by fifth generation descendants of Dr Meikle. We like to think he’d approve of the changes we’ve made.
