Scotland’s wild, romantic landscapes can be at their most alluring at this time of year. Autumn strolls through forest trails strewn with bright leaves or invigorating hikes up majestic hills are a great way to get rid of the stress of the city and work.
It’s not surprising that mini-breaks to the rural splendour of Scotland are a popular option in that long stretch between the end of the summer holidays and the festive season.
Today’s Big Deal offers the tempting prospect of a getaway to the glorious country around Pitlochry and a 3 night stay in self-catering accommodation provided by Logierait Lodges.
Comfort and style
Logierait Lodges are situated five miles south of Pitlochry, in the Tay valley, on the banks of the river, amidst spectacular scenery.
It’s a popular location for a host of outdoor activities, from leisurely fishing on the Tay to the more strenuous delights of white-water rafting, canyoning and mountain biking.
The lodges are such a comfortable base though, that you might be tempted to take it easy with a good book and a very good malt.
Get away from it all
The Big Deal has options to suit the size of your group.
Option one is for three nights in a one bedroom terraced lodge that sleeps two adults and one child. Extra nights can be added for £25 a night.
Option two is for three nights in a two bedroom lodge sleeping four adults and one child. Extra nights are available for a £35 a night supplement.
The lodges are available seven days a week, although Friday and Saturday night stays require a £10 per night supplement.
Visitors reach for the superlatives when they review the facilities and setting of the Logierait 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 by showing their lodge keys on arrival.
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.
Previous visitors have given the Logierait Lodges an abundance of very positive feedback on TripAdvisor, including these recent reviews:

An escape to suit all tastes
This Big Deal offers an attractive opportunity to get close up and personal with some of the finest scenery in Scotland. It’s a versatile offer that can suit various group sizes and cater for the most adventurous outdoor activities enthusiast or those just looking for a spot of tranquillity.
