Rates start from £200 per night for a small double room out of season, to up to £595 per night for a suite in season. However, Cromlix is already fully booked for the Ryder Cup which this year is being held at Gleneagles, less than 20 miles away. The hotel is also being included in a James Bond-themed guided tour of the country being offered by VisitScotland to Russian holiday operators, as it features rooms named after 007 actor Sean Connery and series creator Ian Fleming.
