Perth has pretty surroundings. In fact, a member of the Big Deal team ventured out last year to enjoyed a wedding with a difference in a converted barn.
It was outstanding in its field.
There are lots of other reasons to visit Perth over the next few months.
And we haven’t even begun to list the opportunities for outdoor sports, walks, distillery visits, golf and wildlife watching.
Whatever floats your boat, enjoy it from a cosy base at Mercure Perth hotel, thanks to this Big Deal.
Mercure Perth Hotel is on West Mill Street in the centre of Perth. The hotel is a converted, 15th century watermill and the building’s heritage shines through.
Perth Museum and Art Gallery, Perth Playhouse and Perth Concert Hall are all within easy walking distance.

Available seven days a week, this Big Deal has two options.
Option one is for a one night stay for two in a Classic double or twin with breakfast, bottle of house wine on arrival plus a late check-out to 3pm.
