Winter may yet slam the door a couple of times as it stalks out of 2016.
However, spring is definitely here and the countryside is bursting into life.
Scotland’s wild, romantic landscapes can be at their most alluring at this time of year.
Today’s Big Deal offers the tempting prospect of a getaway to the glorious country around Pitlochry and a two or three night stay in self-catering accommodation provided by Logierait Lodges.
Comfort and style
Logierait Lodges are situated five miles south of Pitlochry, amidst spectacular scenery on the banks of the Tay.
It’s a popular location for a host of outdoor activities, from leisurely fishing to the more strenuous delights of white-water rafting, canyoning and mountain biking.
Though the lodges are such a comfortable base, that you might be tempted to take it easy with a good book and a very good malt.
Get away from it all
Available Sunday to Thursday, the Big Deal has several options.
Option one is for two nights in a one bedroom terraced lodge that sleeps two adults and one child.
Option two is for three nights in a one bedroom terraced lodge.
Option three is for two nights in a two bedroom terraced lodge that sleeps four adults and one child.
Option four is for three nights in a two bedroom terraced lodge.
Extra nights can be added for £55 a night for one bedroom terraced lodges and £65 per night for two bedroom lodges.
The accommodation has been stylishly furnished to a high standard, with contemporary touches and the accent on comfort.
Each lodge offers an open plan kitchen, dining and living space and a private covered terrace or balcony. Amenities include leather sofas, 32in DVD TVs, iPod docking stations and unlimited WiFi. Electricity is included.
Self-catering can be a convenient option, but for those occasions when nobody fancies peeling the potatoes, the nearby Red Brolly Inn is a great alternative.
This family-friendly, all-day eatery is just a ten-minute stroll from the lodges. Logierait guests can claim a 15% discount on their food bills – information can be found in the starter pack on arrival or by making a query via their “website”: http://www.theredbrolly.co.uk prior to arrival. Here, guests can check out the menu, book a table and request a lift there and back in the Brolly car.
Bookings are available from 5-9pm, subject to availability.
Despite a tranquil Perthshire location that can seem worlds away from the bustle of the city, Logierait lodges are just 90 minutes by road from Edinburgh or Glasgow, easily accessible from the A9.
Visitors reach for the superlatives when they review the facilities and setting of the Logierait lodges on TripAdvisor, as this excerpt from a recent review shows:
‘Fabulous break away from it all… the location is perfect, real country feel on the banks of the river; just a minute or two off the A9 and easily found… managers, John and Esther… really went out of their way to make us feel valued and welcome… lodge terrace which had a small verandah – perfect for admiring the scenery. Spacious living and kitchen area with everything you could require for a self catering stay… The double bedroom was a great size with full wardrobes and plenty of drawer space. Bathroom again a good size with over bath shower. Thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area, House of Bruar just a short drive away.’

This Big Deal offers an attractive opportunity to get close up and personal with some of the finest scenery in Scotland.
Whether you are an adventurous outdoor activities enthusiast or simply looking for a spot of tranquillity, today’s Big Deal with Logierait Lodges is a fantastic way to enjoy Scotland in the spring.
