6 Hours in Dunblane

6 Hours in Dunblane

Our team of local staff have compiled the ultimate list of things to do in Dunblane, and they’re all doable within half a day! So whether you're a guest of the hotel, or just passing through, check out our suggestions and seize the day.

12pm-2pm

Prosecco afternoon tea

There’s nothing like starting the afternoon with a little culture. Discover, play and learn with the whole family at the Stirling Smith Gallery, just ten minutes from our hotel. Explore Scotland’s finest ceramic works and paintings – plus the history of Stirling dating from the prehistoric era.

Sightseeing is hungry work, so head back for a spot of lunch. Relax in our Stuart Lounge by the feature fireplace and enjoy views of our rolling lawns. Treat yourself to our Prosecco afternoon tea with sandwiches, cakes and fizz!

2pm-4pm

Andy Murray's Golden Postbox

After lunch, take a walk through the 12th-Century Dunblane Cathedral and marvel at the ancient structure and its peaceful atmosphere. Visit Dunblane Museum – right across the road – celebrating the history of the cathedral and Dunblane.

Check out the town’s recent history too, with a stop by Sir Andy Murray’s golden post box, in honour of his victory over Roger Federer in the London 2012 Olympics final.

4pm-6pm

massage

Refresh from an afternoon of exploration with a visit to our LivingWell Health Club. Want to keep up your fitness regime? Swim some laps in our 17-metre indoor pool, or work out in the fitness centre. If you prefer to relax before dinner, unwind in the sauna or treat yourself to a massage.

Getting a taste for the town doesn’t stop at sightseeing. Complete your Dunblane experience at our signature restaurant, The Kailyard by Nick Nairn, with locally sourced ingredients. Sample our spring menu, featuring smoked ham hock & Mull cheddar croquettes with Nick's tomato and chilli jam – or try the show-stopping slow braised Ayrshire pork belly.

Let the afternoon roll into the evening with a stay at DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane, as you reminisce of the day’s events. Treat yourself, or someone special to one of our special offers and discover all the attractions of Dunblane.
