Tayside Taster 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.
TOUR OPERATES MONDAY TO FRIDAY
Full Day Excursion to Crieff & Perth
The traditional market town of Crieff is set in stunning scenery and offers a wealth of interesting attractions from museums and distilleries to quirky shops and caf�s. Perth is a dramatic and historic city on the River Tay, with a variety of museums and galleries including a major collection of the works of John Duncan Fergusson.
Full Day Excursion to St Andrews & Dundee Botanic Gardens
The ancient city of St Andrews formed around the now-ruined cathedral, whose remains can be visited (charges apply) and whose stone was re-used in many other buildings in the town, lending them a unique character. In Dundee we visit the University Botanic Gardens, whose sheltered setting allows a great variety of plants to thrive, making it one of the top garden attractions in Eastern Scotland.
