Christmas in Perthshire

If you are planning a trip to Perthshire this coming festive period then there is plenty going on to keep you occupied.

Santa at Scone Palace

Take a visit to the historical Scone Palace where Santa will be paying a special on the 12th & 13th December. There are two parties to choose from on each day: 10.00am-12.00 noon or 1.30pm-3.30pm, with a present for every child and fun games, led by his hard-working elves! The Palace Gardens are open free of charge throughout the winter months and well worth a visit!

Christmas Markets

Visit the magnificent Gleneagles on the 12th and 13th December and treat yourself to a great day out and get ahead with your Christmas shopping! Gleneagles ignites the festive spirit with their biggest Christmas Market to date. Browse stalls offering everything from handcrafted arts and crafts, ceramics, bespoke artworks and luxury jewellery, to photography and locally sourced artisan food. Kids will be enchanted by old fashioned balloon-animal making!

Or why not take a trip to the stunning Glamis Castle? Events take place on the 11th, 12th and 13th December from 10am until 4pm. The Castle tours will be given a festive makeover; 1920s style! Join expert guides as they transport you back to the roaring twenties and take you on a memorable Christmas party themed tour.

Step back in time at Blair Castle
If you’re up in Highland Perthshire, why not pop along to Blair Castle on the 13th (and 20th), where the castle is open to give visitors the chance to see the Christmas Castle, decorated as it was in the Victorian era, when the 7th Duke lived here with his wife Louisa and their 6 children: Dorothea, Helen, Evelyn, Bardie (the future Duke), George and James. The rooms are decorated to give an insight into how they might have celebrated Christmas.

We’ve still got a range of beautiful lets available over Christmas week – so why not do something different this Christmas and spend it in the magnificent Perthshire countryside.
