We don’t want to alarm anyone. However, the sound of jingle bells is about to drown out all else.
Make a magnificent start on your Christmas shopping with this Big Deal on a break in the award-winning Craigmhor Lodge & Courtyard in Pitlochry.
Tucked away in enchanting woodland grounds, Craigmhor is an absolutely stunning place to stay and it fully deserved to be named the Guest House of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards this year.
Awarded four star gold guest house status from VisitScotland, Craigmhor Lodge and Courtyard is a beautiful, family owned and run B&B consisting of a Victorian lodge and twelve courtyard bedrooms.
The Big Deal is available Sunday to Thursday and is for two people to indulge in an overnight bed and breakfast stay in a Superior room at the Craigmhor Lodge and Courtyard. Option two is for a two night stay.
Superior rooms are large in size and feature super kingsize double or twin beds; a 32” wall-mounted plasma TV with DVD player; an iPod docking station; WiFi; fridge and hot drinks facilities, including your own espresso coffee making machine.
Luxury walk-in showers and twin hand basins are complemented by underfloor heating in the bathrooms.
Thanks to an early check in of 2pm and late check-out of 12pm, you can take your time and enjoy all of this luxury without rushing on the day of departure.
There is also the option to upgrade to a Deluxe patio room for just £20 a night. Deluxe rooms are larger in size than the superior rooms.
As well as free-standing baths plus showers, they also have their own garden terrace so guests can relax and watch the wildlife in the adjacent pond and hills beyond.
The Craigmhor has won awards for its breakfasts.
Using only the best, fresh and local produce, guests can enjoy a continental buffet followed by a full cooked Scottish breakfast served in the large, comfortable dining room with stunning views of the pretty Victorian town.
Typical dishes might be creamy scrambled eggs and Dunkeld smoked salmon on a bagel, porridge with whisky or a peat-smoked Buckie haddock.
