Reputed to be one of the oldest hotels in Scotland, the Salutation Hotel has been welcoming guests since 1699.
The Salutation Hotel, affectionately named the ‘Sally’, in Perth, has been providing accommodation to guests since 1699. In September 1745, Bonnie Prince Charlie marched from the Island of Eriskay and continued right across the mainland of Scotland.
He made use of the Salutation Hotel in Perth as his main headquarters, and today we have a main bedroom – which is accessible – where he would have slept.
Does his spirit still walk this location, still plotting for his desire to sit on the royal throne of Scotland?
