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 today’s Big Deal on a break in the award-winning Craigmhor guest house in Pitlochry.
With vouchers valid until the 20th of March 2014, a stay at this gorgeous guesthouse would make a very welcome Christmas present.
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.
Tucked away in enchanting woodland grounds, the Craigmhor did rather well at this year’s Scottish Hotel awards, winning a Gold Medal Good Rooms plus Scotland’s Best Guest House Breakfast 2013 for the second year in a row!
Today’s 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.
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 a late check-out of 1pm, 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 room for just £15 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 private balcony or garden terrace so guests can relax and watch the wildlife in the adjacent pond and hills beyond.
Did we mention that the Craigmhor won an award for its breakfasts? That won’t come as a surprise to anyone who has started the day the Craigmhor way.
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 conservatory.
Typical dishes might be creamy scrambled eggs and Dunkeld smoked salmon on a bagel, porridge with whisky or a peat-smoked Buckie haddock.
