For some family fun the 9-hole highland course at Dalmunzie Hotel, Spittal of Glenshee should not be missed. -For shoppers why not visit House of Bruar ('Harrods in the Hills') or if you fancy a wee dram then stop off at Edradour distillery by Pitlochry followed by an evening at the renowned festival theatre nearby. - Opportunity to add on a guided roe deer stalking or guided photo-stalking day to get close to our fantastic wildlife.

Had a fantastic stay over New Year. The house was perfect and certainly enjoyed the log fire whilst it was snowing outside. Will definitely be back.
