Crieff Hydro

Crieff Hydro has been under the control of the same family for several generations. Operating seven hotels across Peebles, Glencoe and Crieff in Scotland, they offer a range of accommodation and outdoor activities.

Like many businesses The Crieff Hydro Family of hotels had to close due to the lockdown across the UK. Santander supported with a £5 million Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) overdraft.

We have greatly valued having the continuity of relationship with our local team. They take a real interest in our strategy, and roll up their sleeves to deliver rapid solutions. This strong relationship and support allows me to focus on the business.

Chairman / CEO, Crieff Hydro

This allowed them to be well placed to provide a safe environment for when hotels were permitted to open again in July.

Crieff Hydro is a fantastic business that puts its guests at the heart of everything it does. By working with them to provide support through CBILS, we’re delighted they have reopened offering the warm welcome and range of facilities its guests have come to expect.
