Famous Grouse Award - Backstage at The Green Hotel

We are very proud to have been awarded one of the Famous Grouse Awards for Scotland for Backstage at The Green Hotel, Kinross

Backstage at the Green Hotel, Kinross

Backstage at the Green Hotel is a bar and music venue gaining popularity for attempting the Edinburgh-Glasgow duopoly of Scottish music venues.

You’d have thought that the prospect of staying at a stylish hotel and golf course close to Loch Leven would be reason enough to visit eastern Scotland. But The Green Hotel, a wonderful leisure complex in Kinross, is also home to a fabulous live-music venue.

The likes of Toyah and Glenn Tilbrook are all set to play at Backstage at The Green this year, and performances from a range of innovative acts are held on most nights of the week.

Book a room so that you don’t have to drive afterwards.

Other reviews:

Recently converted from a disused leisure club, Backstage is now a live music venue holding 120 people, complete with its own separate bar.

Raul Malo, Albert Lee, Strawbs, David Knopfler, Ian McLagan, Terry Reid, Rodney Crowell have all played at Backstage.

It brings quality music out of Glasgow and Edinburgh and proves that with vision a new niche market can be created in the autumn, winter and spring periods. Backstage also hosts the three week long festival called Fifestock, creating a boost not only to the hotel but to the local area as well.

There is also a vast amount of music memorabilia displayed in the bar and gig room which has to be one of the best displays in the UK.


A fantastic hotel and leisure complex but the absolute icing on the cake is the music venue which was created out of the old swimming pool area. Some great acts are hosted there. They include Curved Air, Toyah, John Parr, Electric Strawbs, Rodney Crowell and many more. A must for a visit.


It has been transformed into one of the most talked-about venues for amazing music and musicians.

The atmosphere is electric and the drink and food is amazing. The staff are lovely and smiley and David Mundell who hosts the gigs is an expert in his field with a true passion for music.

Picture this: a full tummy of delicious food, a glass of Famous Grouse and a night of pure musical entertainment.


The Green Hotel is home to Mundell Music who are great supporters of live music from acts of all genres no matter how famous they may be. Backstage at the Green is an excellent venue.
