Champagne is flowing at hotels across Perthshire after a series of big wins at this year’s tourism Oscars.
The Old Mill at Pitlochry was among the big winners at the prestigious Scottish Hotel of the Year awards.
The historic establishment, based at a converted corn mill, was crowned the country’s Inn of the Year for a second time.
Another Pitlochry winner was the Craigatin House and Courtyard which scooped the top prize for bed and breakfast establishment or guest house.
Also in Perthshire, the Ballanthie House Hotel in Stanley was awarded the best Country Sports Hotel while Andy Murray’s Cromlix Hotel at Kinbuck, near Dunblane, picked up the gong for Luxury Hotel of the Year.
The venue’s culinary consultant, celebrity chef Albert Roux, also received this year’s Fellowship for Outstanding Contribution to the Industry title.
And it was a Fife venue, the Balbirnie House Hotel, which fought off strong competition from the central belt to get the Scottish Hotel of the Year title.
It was a double-win for the Old Mill Inn, whose receptionist Gosia Wasik won the rising start award.
Owners Fiona and Angus John MacLelllan said they were thrilled the hard work of their team had been recognised.
“We could not be more delighted,” said Angus John. “To achieve the award for Inn of the Year – not once, but twice – is a great endorsement of what we’re doing here.
“Our aim is to be the best that we can possible and this award is proof positive that people love what we are doing.”
The award will take pride of place at the venue’s award display area.
The pair took over the inn, which dates back to the 19th century, in 2012.
Since then, it has scored a VisitScotland Gold star status and was named Tayside and Fife’s Friendliest pub at the Scottish Thistle Awards.
Almost 40% of the shortlisted candidates were from the Tayside, Fife and Central area.
The 19 award categories attracted a record-breaking 245 entries from enterprises of all sizes.
More than 400 people attended the ceremony in Edinburgh’s Sheraton Grand Hotel.
