Royal Balmoral & Glamis 5 Days - Angus Hotel
Lying at the foot of the Grampians, Blairgowrie ('Plain of Gowrie' in Scottish Gaelic) has been occupied continuously since the Neolithic period: numerous flint and bronze artefacts have been found in the immediate area. The town's centrepiece is the Wellmeadow, a grassy triangle on which regular markets and shows are held. Blairgowrie Golf Club, founded in 1889, has two 18 hole courses and a 9 hole course. Highland Games are held annually on Bogles Field and are noted for the mass tug o'war between the entire populations of Blairgowrie and Rattray.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
