This is what one recent and very enthusiastic guest had to say on TripAdvisor:
‘The most beautiful place on earth. Don’t let its humble name fool you, this place is better than any castle. Stunning. This is the most beautiful place we stayed in Scotland with grounds that are so unbelievably gorgeous they will make you cry. Our room, although not big, was beautiful and comfortable with views of the River Tay… I am so glad we stayed here, everything was perfect. Take some good shoes for taking a walk around the grounds. Fishing is legendary here as is hunting but not necessary to enjoy your visit. Dinner was amazing, as was everything.’
This offer from Ballathie House Hotel would be fantastic for a pre-Christmas getaway. With vouchers valid until 30th March 2016, it would also make an elegant Christmas gift for someone special.
