Blair Castle in AutumnChloe Thornton, from Blair Atholl Estate commented:  “It is the simplicity of a holiday with family, surrounded by nature, that is driving enquiries for winter holidays. The confidence that travel arrangements won’t be disrupted and that high standards of cleanliness will be enforced is the perfect solution for families looking for ways to grab some time away together prior to Christmas.    

“The holiday season has already spilled over into autumn, the perfect time to travel safely to Highland Perthshire for a well-earned break. The colours across the estate at this time of year are spectacular.  That, combined with the reassurance we can offer, means we are potentially now seeing a new season of winter family holidays. The charms of a crisp winter landscapes and brisk morning walks are there to be discovered.”
