Perthshire 'Turkey & Tinsel'

Perthshire 'Turkey & Tinsel'





5 DAYS FROM £269


Often referred to as ‘Big Tree Country’ Perthshire offers a breathtaking variety of scenery from its serene glens and endless expanses of lush forest, to its bleakly beautiful moors, rushing rivers and tumbling waterfalls. Perfectly situated along the banks of the River Tay, Perth is a sheer joy to explore on foot. Sandwiched between two sweeping public parks, the compact centre boasts many fine restaurants and cafés and great shopping.


Our festively themed ‘Turkey & Tinsel’ break includes a welcome glass of bubbly on arrival at the hotel, 3 complimentary drinks vouchers per person per day, a quiz and four evenings of entertainment.


Our base in Perth is the very comfortable SALUTATION HOTEL which is ideally situated in the heart of the city just a short walk from the shops and theatres. Dating back to 1699, the Salutation is reputedly Scotland’s oldest hotel and can count Bonnie Prince Charlie as a guest! Features of the hotel include a relaxing bar/lounge and fine restaurant with barrel vaulted ceiling and magnificent neoclassical 24 pane Adam window. All of the en suite bedrooms feature tv, hairdryer, telephone and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.


Monday 12th November (Christmas Eve)
Departing Newark early morning, we travel north via the Cheviot Hills and Edinburgh before crossing the Forth Road Bridge to our base at Perth and a welcome glass of bubbly before our evening meal.

Tuesday 13th (Christmas Day) – Thursday 15th November (Hogmanay)
Scheduled excursions during our stay will include the following:
• Full day visit to Dundee - the fourth largest city in Scotland. Situated on the north bank of the River Tay, the city’s compact size makes it ideal for walking around; its cobbled lanes and hidden courtyards are home to quirky independent shops and cafés along with the usual high street stores. The waterfront has an excellent maritime museum complete with preserved vessels and science centre along with numerous cafés and restaurants.
• Full day tour via Dunkeld to the magnificent Blair Castle which nestles in the landscape of Highland Perthshire. Ancient seat of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl, the Castle is home to Europe’s last remaining private army, the Atholl Highlanders. We return via the lovely hillside town of Pitlochry nestled beneath its own mountain Ben Vrackie, and a once favoured holiday destination of Queen Victoria.
• Free morning at leisure in Perth followed by an afternoon tour around Loch Leven calling at the Loch Leven Larder (an award winning family run farm and restaurant) for a cup of tea/coffee and festive mince pie.

Friday 16th November
Departing Perth after breakfast, we retrace our steps, so home to Newark for approximately teatime.
