Tick tock, it’s summer o’clock.
So why not make the most of the better weather by waving goodbye to the urban rush for a night or two?
But if you need a little bit of destination inspiration, then what about a romantic Perthshire escape in a hotel brimming with history and character?
With this Big Deal from The Royal Dunkeld Hotel, you can choose to stay one or two nights. A full Scottish breakfast is included and you will also be treated to a lovely bottle of wine on arrival.
Perthshire getaway for two
Based on the River Tay and nicknamed the ‘Gateway to the Highlands’, Dunkeld is a picturesque Perthshire town with a striking Medieval cathedral.

Option one is for an overnight stay. Option two adds on an extra night. Prices are based on two people sharing a standard twin or double room.
You can bring up to two dogs for a £10 supplement each per stay, payable directly to the hotel.

‘Been visiting this hotel over many years and it has never changed…which is the reason we continue to visit. Rooms clean and tidy, staff service good. Dunkeld itself a good base for staying while visiting this area. Highlight of the week end…a bowl of Cullen Skink soup…lovely, creamy and you can actually see and taste the smoked haddock in the bowl…well done chef!’
