Home to some of the most remarkable trees, woodlands and country gardens in Europe, Highland Perthshire often goes by the name of Big Tree Country.
As autumn turns the leaves every shade of red and gold, this is a good time to visit.
Give yourself a break and enjoy one of nature’s most breathtaking displays with today’s Big Deal from the award-winning Craigmhor Lodge & Courtyard in Pitlochry.
Tucked away in enchanting woodland grounds, Craigmhor is an absolutely stunning place to stay and it fully deserves every one of its four gold stars from VisitScotland.
A family-owned and run guest house, Craigmhor Lodge and Courtyard features a charming Victorian lodge and twelve courtyard bedrooms.
Along with the high-quality finish of the bedrooms, reviews often mention the warm welcome at Craigmhor.
With purchases valid until 23rd December, this is a versatile offer which could be used for a pre-Christmas, stress-busting break.
This Big Deal is available seven days a week, and is for two people to indulge in an overnight bed and breakfast stay in a Superior room at the Craigmhor Lodge and Courtyard.
There is a minimum stay of two nights for Friday and Saturday, with a £20 supplement per room per night payable on those days.
Superior rooms are large in size and feature super king-size double or twin beds; a 32” wall-mounted plasma TV with DVD player; Bluetooth music system; WiFi; 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 an early check-in of 2pm, you can enjoy a little bit extra time in the comfort.
Option to upgrade
There is also the option to upgrade to a Deluxe patio room or balcony room from £20 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 garden terrace or balcony so guests can relax and watch the wildlife in the adjacent pond and hills beyond.
Craigmhor Lodge has won many awards for its spectacular breakfast buffet and cooked options.
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 dining room with stunning views of the pretty Victorian town.

‘We spent two nights at the Craigmhor lodge and the room was spacious, clean and tidy. The breakfast was amazing. Plenty of choices and it was no problem for the staff to cook anything you wanted. The location was in a beautiful setting and was only a short walk into Pitlochry itself. Would highly recommend this for a visit.’
‘From the first moment of driving through the entrance, we knew this would be a lovely property. And we weren’t wrong! Our upgraded room was clean and quiet with excellent amenities including an Espresso machine and luxurious bathrobes. The bathroom was superb…bright and first-rate. But the “piece de resistance” was the breakfast” – one of the best we had. It was aesthetically presented with both cold and hot choices. The blueberry pancake is a MUST!!. Jane was a wonderful host, as was her husband, who was so patient when I had forgotten some important personal papers. Highly recommend and I must say, we will be back!’
