Ramada Hotel


(Upper City Mills)

A 76-bedroom hotel in West Mill Street, Perth, the Ramada Hotel occupies the historic former Upper City Mills, a rubble-built collection of buildings dating from the 18th century. The first grain mill is said to have been constructed here in the 15th century, but the oldest range of the current U-shaped structure dates from c.1750, with a granary built to the north in 1771. The south and east ranges were added to the mill in 1788. The mill was converted into a hotel in 1971 by Glasgow-based architects T.M. Miller and Partners and the granary connected as part of the complex ten years later. The mill race still flows below the buildings and can be observed through a glass panel in the hotel's reception area, along with a waterwheel. The race flows on to the Lower Mills, which lie a short distance to the east.
