All work and no play leads to cats being kicked; doors being slammed and other manifestations of the grumpy gremlins.
Bid adieu to grumpiness with today’s Big Deal on a two night break for two at one of Perthshire’s best-know hotels.
In business for over a hundred years, The Angus Hotel sits pretty in the centre of Blairgowrie; a picturesque country town nestled at the foot of the Sidlaw hills and the gateway to the glens.
With breathtaking Glenshee to the north and the romance and legend of Braemar and Royal Deeside beyond, Blairgowrie is ideally located for a soul-soothing break.
The hotel’s comfortable and well-appointed en-suite bedrooms all have satellite TV. Each room is individually decorated using the high quality fabrics and furnishings and fluffy towels and extra bedding come as standard.
Complimentary WiFi access is available throughout the hotel.
The Big Deal includes afternoon tea but if you choose to eat in the hotel restaurant then you are in for a treat.
Popular with locals as well as residents, the hotel restaurant features imaginative, creative cooking using a wide range of fresh, local and seasonal produce. Shying away from fussy food, the kitchen prefers to let the flavour of the ingredients shine through.
The hotel has an exclusive leisure club equipped with spa bath, steam room, sauna and heated swimming pool.
Nearby visitor attractions include Blair Castle, Glamis Castle, Scone Palace, Perth Races, Perth and Pitlochry theatres and The Hermitage and Cathedral at Dunkeld.
Perthshire is also the adventure playground of Scotland. Superb walking and cycling are on the doorstep as are more high octane pursuits such as rafting, skiing and adventure sports.
Glorious golfing is within easy reach at the famous Blairgowrie Rosemount Club while Gleneagles, Carnoustie and St Andrews are a short drive away.
In the main, The Angus Hotel has been positively reviewed. This is what a recent visitor, Jennifer 0508, had to say on TripAdvisor:
‘Very enjoyable visit. Thank you for making my birthday extra special. Was made to feel very welcome, and was even told where to find some hairy cows! The staff were very attentive making sure my stay was enjoyable. Will definitely stay there again.’
