What’s on in Perthshire
What’s on in Perthshire – in an area of great vibrancy, special interest, culture and diversity?
Major traditional events held annually near the hotel include the Highland Games and Gatherings in Perthshire, notably at Pitlochry and Blair Castle, with the famous Braemar Highland Gathering a surprisingly easy drive away.(under 1 hour from the hotel)
The internationally renowned Blair Castle International Horse Trials and Country Fair is held annually in August, in the beautiful parkland surrounding Blair Castle, about 25 miles from the hotel. The first Three Day Event at Blair was held in 1989, and since then the event has gone from strength to strength, hosting the Junior European Championships in 1996, and attracting in excess of 50,000 spectators annually.
Other notable events in and near Perth include the wonderful Perth Races, and numerous flower, garden and food festivals. And many small highland Perthshire towns and villages hold superb local cultural events and craft fairs.
Theatregoers – the wonderful Pitlochry and Perth Theatres (and Perth Concert Hall), all now with programmes running throughout the year.
