December doesn’t have to be dark and cold, and in Scotland it’s not! Think of a glittering array of twinkling lights in trees, outdoor ice rinks with beautifully illuminated buildings as the backdrop, packed with markets and the aroma of Mulled wine, Gingerbread & Gin – It’s easy to fall under Scotland’s winter spell. Staying at the Salutation Perth, location is everything with all the amenities of the town centre only a short walk away, along with in-house entertainment, making it perfect for a festive getaway. Furthermore, due to Perth’s central location, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Pitlochry; the entrance to the Cairngorms, are only a short drive away. As well as this, there is plenty more in the area including Hawick, Blairgowie and the newly opened V&A Museum in Dundee.
