Sometimes, around this time of year, your favourite friends and places might start to appear a little lacklustre and unexciting. It’s nothing new; it happens to everyone; it’s called the winter blues. The good news is it’s not catching, so if you’re tired of being cooped up indoors, make a break for the big outdoors.
Booking a week in the casual luxury of Dunalastair Hotel Suites will work wonders, re-energising your spirits to where they rightly belong.
The countryside around Dunalastair Hotel Suites can’t help to work its magic. Snowcapped mountains, dark green forests, and the winter shades of heather will leave you feeling centred and calm.
So, if you think you’ve caught the winter blues, we have just the right prescription.
Read on to discover what’s in store when you join us at our Kinloch Rannoch hotel for the Scottish break of a lifetime.
Remarkable Views at Every Turn
On the doorstep of Dunalastair Hotel Suites, the village of Kinloch Rannoch epitomises a charming Scottish country village. Nearby the snowcapped iconic Munro of Schiehallion stands sentinel over Rannoch Moor and the rippling waters of Loch Rannoch.
Radiating out from Kinloch Rannoch, there are numerous villages and small towns to explore. Nearby Pitlochry oozes history and local shopping, while Loch Faskally and the mountain of Ben Vrackie offer plenty of opportunities to walk among some of the most attractive Highland countryside.
The panoramas of Highland Perthshire are ever-changing, constantly influenced by the seasons and climate. They act as the palette to create a backdrop of simple nature at its best.
A Brand New Adventure on Each New Day
Each brand-new day is a brand-new adventure, where boredom never needs to play a part.
If you are bringing the whole family and you need to keep the kids entertained or just escaping with a loved one, you will find activities for all tastes. Indoor or outdoor, physical, or relaxing, the choice is yours, but one thing we are sure of is you’ll be planning to return before you’ve even left. The Scottish experience is addictive!
For families with children, Nae Limits Outdoor Activity Centre in nearby Pitlochry
The company name says it all, Nae Limits Outdoor Activity Centre, offers everything from the exhilarating thrill of quad biking, where you’ll be skidding your way through fields and forest, paintballing, and gorge walking, where you will slide over rocks, plunge into pools, and stand under waterfalls.
A Haven of Peace and Serenity
If all that activity has tired you out or the festive season has left you in a spin, then maybe a chance to reflect and take it easy is the best option.
Fishing in Perthshire is some of the best, both offshore and river fishing for salmon and trout are renowned the world over. Spending a few days relaxing on the banks of Loch Rannoch or Loch Tay will revitalise the most world-weary.
Walkers are spoilt for choice, and the local villages of Aberfeldy, Kenmore and Pitlochry are the starting points for ambles and more strenuous hikes.
The history of these villages and towns goes a long way to explaining the history of Scotland itself, with its trials and tribulations over the generations.
The overriding sense of rural Scotland is of calmness and tranquillity, where the excesses of modern society have been kept at bay. It is a haven you can return to time and time again.
