Town events and refundable guaranteed Bookings

3) Terms of Service - Town Event direct bookings only



Certain high demand accommodation events throughout the year such as

Etape cycle event, Blair Castle Horse Trials, Pitlochry & Braemar Highland Games weekends & Hogmanay

have bespoke Terms of Service, these are listed below.


Nobody likes `the small print`


These terms of service only apply to bookings made directly with Beinn Bhracaigh.

If you have booked via any other 3rd party, you need to follow the T`s & C`s of that 3rd party – so your reading is complete!


We don't like writing terms of service, and we know you don't like reading them, but they're here for a reason,

and that's to protect both you and Beinn Bhracaigh.


If you have any further questions on our terms please contact us.


These terms of service are not expansive, but we want everyone to know what we strive to deliver, as well as any limitations we are aware of that may impact on your stay with us, that you need to be aware of.


Also, we want to highlight certain things that we do expect Beinn Bhracaigh guests, to be aware of & take responsibility for.


In simple speak, it is about `doing the right thing`. 


For `Town Events` & `Non-Refundable Guaranteed` bookings only: 


1) We do not accept children under the age of 8 years of age.   


2) We do not allow pets on the premises at any time. 

Assistance dogs, in certain designated areas only (not in bedrooms) are welcome.


3) 100% no-smoking & no-vaping, within the property. 

The designated smoking area is within the Walled Garden area only.

Please do not smoke outside the Reception main front door.

We charge guests, who smoke anywhere inside the property, £200 per instance,

required to cover the cost of specialist deep cleaning of affected areas.


4) Check-in is between 16.00 - 19.00 hours latest. 

To arrange, at an additional charge, an earlier Check-in time, please do this via our booking system `Add Extras`,

or later thereafter by contacting us directly, subject to availability.

If you arrive early, do feel free to park up, take a town map from the Reception door, & explore Pitlochry.


5) Bedroom allocations. 

With a request for a specific room, we will always use our best endeavours to try to honour this.

However; on occasion, for operational reasons, this may not be possible & if this is the case, we will always

offer either an alternate room of the same standard, or a room upgrade, subject to availability.


6) Damage. 

We do understand and accept that from time to time accidents do happen.

All we ask is that you notify us as soon as possible (we are available 24/7) if this has been the case.

Quite often, with a speedy alert, many issues can be dealt with easily.

However; where we are not informed as soon as possible - which may then have a knock-on adverse consequence on

the initial damage e.g. red wine spillage left on a carpet for some time, we will charge the guest for the cost of

replacement of the `damaged` item(s), but may also add charges for consequential losses

(should we not be able to resell the room to the next guest), for our loss of revenue.

Please note that we do not allow the consumption of ANY hot food items eg Pizzas or Currys etc in any guest rooms, or public spaces; for which there are deep cleaning charges, where this has found to have happened. It may be possible to use a table in our breakfast dining room - please ask & give as much notice as possible.


7) Deposits & Pre-payments. 

a) Usually full pre-payment of the entire stay estimated costs is required at the time of the initial booking.

We will usually contact you to ensure you are aware of this.

b) All deposit & pre-payments are strictly only taken on the understanding that they are non-refundable & non-transferable.

c) We still require holding a valid card number to guarantee any future possible incidental costs e.g. Honesty Bar charges.

d) We highly recommend that guests take out adequate & suitable insurance to cover,

for instance against, any unforeseen cancellation, curtailment or damage charges.


8) Check-out is available between 09.15 - 10.30 hours daily. 

If you need to depart earlier, please settle any outstanding charges there may be, the night prior by 21.00 hours,

to aide your speedy onward travel.
