The Story So Far...
The Tormaukin is a historic 18th century country inn brimming with olde world charm, and nestled in 'Scotland's secret glen' of Glendevon, just a stone's throw away from Gleneagles luxury golf resort. Originally a Drover's inn where shepherds and cattle herders would stop for respite, the inn is named after the hill it nestles beneath, and in Gaelic translates to 'Tor' for hill and 'Maukin' for hare.
Freshly-refurbished, with roaring fires and beamed ceilings throughout, the inn boasts a cosy fireside snug, a plentiful bar with draught ales, whisky, & gin, a traditional olde world dining room for hearty dinners of seasonal produce, a new resident’s lounge and games room, and our bright and airy garden room and patio.
Family-run and owned by Chloe, Mark & Lydia, (and our four happy spaniels!) you can always be sure to expect a warm and friendly welcome at the Tormaukin! Brimming with history and character, with famous guests among the likes of Neil Armstrong, Charlie Chaplin, and Laurel and Hardy, the inn has retained its guestbooks all the way back to the 1930s, and is regarded as one of the most well-known and cherished country inns in Scotland.
Surrounded by natural beauty, rolling hills, reservoirs and overlooking the river Devon, The Tormaukin promises a peaceful retreat, yet also enjoys a central location in the heartland of Scotland. The cultural hotspots of Edinburgh and Glasgow are less than an hour away from the inn, Stirling and Perth are both within 14 miles, while Gleneagles train station is just a 10 minute drive away and sits on the daily direct route from London–Inverness.
