SCENIC PERTHSHIRE & EDINBURGH

New Tour

Scotland needs little introduction as an unforgettable holiday destination it’s the capital city Edinburgh is a city that begs to be discovered. We enjoy a stay in the centre of Perth and visit a range of attractions and places that offer an insight into the many facets of this often wild, beautifully scenic and always welcoming country.

The three star Salutation Hotel is thought to be one of the oldest hotels in Scotland. Situated in the heart of the historic city of Perth this welcoming hotel offers traditional hospitality with modern comforts. Rooms are individually designed with good facilities and some have lift access.
