We don’t know about you, but sometimes we wish we could be dinky little snow globe characters in a winter wonderland. How better to spend eternity than in a bobble hat, laughing and throwing tiny snowballs?
Thankfully, you don’t have to shrink to thumb size to have that experience. Because Highland Perthshire is also pretty darn magical in winter, making it ideal for a new year escape.
That’s why today’s Big Deal for a cottage stay for two to eight people at the 4* Moness Resort would make a fabulous gift for a couple or family.
Valid until the end of March, it could also be a fun getaway for you and your friends. Hot cocoa and rum at the ready, then.
Getaway with friends or family
Many of the cottages at Moness Resort have views overlooking the magnificent Aberfeldy Hills and the surrounding countryside.

Scottish restaurant in Perthshire
A popular feature of the resort, the Flemmyng Restaurant offers an excellent choice of fresh meat, fish and game sourced in Perthshire.
All guests will be offered a complimentary bottle of house wine per couple if ordering a three course a la carte meal in the Flemmyng restaurant.
The Terrace Bar offers a less formal setting with bistro style furniture and is an ideal choice for a lighter or more informal meal.
It’s very family-friendly and has the additional bonus of an outdoor terrace.
When the sun is shining, it is the ideal spot for enjoying a drink or al fresco meal.
