Splash out on a lux­ury New year break fit for roy­alty ...

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - NEWS -

NO mat­ter the time of year, Pit­lochry in the heart of Perthshire, one of Scot­land’s most beau­ti­ful towns, al­ways of­fers spec­tac­u­lar scenery and a unique am­bi­ence all of its own.

Eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble from al­most all ar­eas of the coun­try, it is easy to see why this pic­turesque area has been a tourist des­ti­na­tion for over 150 years, count­ing Queen Vic­to­ria amongst its early ad­mir­ers as a hol­i­day spot.

It is a per­fect base to ex­plore High­land Perthshire, or while away the hours with a spot of fish­ing or a game of golf at the many qual­ity cour­ses in the sur­round­ing area.

Snow per­mit­ting, of course.

Pit­lochry is also home to some of the finest ho­tels in the coun­try, and none more so than the Atholl Palace Ho­tel & Spa, the per­fect place to get away from it all and chase away those win­ter blues.

They are cur­rently run­ning a spe­cial win­ter of­fer where 2 nights din­ner, bed & break­fast will set you back just £139 per per­son Sun­day to Thurs­day.

With beau­ti­ful gar­dens for an en­er­gis­ing stroll, as well as lux­u­ri­ous spa and leisure fa­cil­i­ties for re­lax­ing dur­ing the day, be­fore a sump­tu­ous three-course can­dlelit din­ner and maybe a cou­ple of drinks in the bar at night, it is the per­fect place to warm the cock­les.

Just down the road, the stun­ning Green Park Ho­tel, which was named Scot­tish Ho­tel of the Year in 2015 by The Good Ho­tel Guide, is also of­fer­ing spe­cial win­ter rates all the way up un­til Jan­uary 25th, where Din­ner, Bed & Break­fast is avail­able from just £90 per per­son per night for a week’s stay.

Their restau­rant has been con­sis­tently awarded a cov­eted Red Rosette since 1997 for its blend of tra­di­tional Scot­tish and French cui­sine, us­ing the best lo­cal pro­duce avail­able at the time of year.

REST AND RE­LAX­ATION: Re­cu­per­ate from the fes­tive mad­ness at Atholl Palace Ho­tel in Pit­lochry.
