The Royal Hotel in Forfar will ensure the warmest of welcomes to guests visiting the historic and beautiful town of Forfar. For the more spirited, guests can enjoy the complimentary use of the leisure facilities which include a swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and fully equipped gymnasium. (GW 09/2008) This is a lovely former Coaching Inn built in the the 1700's and is thus a traditional building. The Royal Burgh of Forfar stands on what was once the centre of the Kingdom of the Picts - the region's first settlers. Puzzling reminders of the area's earliest inhabitants spring up around the fertile Strathmore valley in which Forfar proudly sits, with mysterious shapes carved deep into solitary stones scattered throughout the land. The hotel is just 20 minutes from Dundee.
