Staying at The Fisher’s Hotel
5 DAYS | 10th October 2017
Our Autumn tints tour takes us across the border to Scotland when at this time of year the glens and mountains explode into colour, with deep red, gold, purple, copper and russets. To highlight the colours even more we visit ‘The Enchanted Forest’, Scotland’s sound and light show set amidst the stunning Autumn woodland of Faskally Wood in the Highlands.
The Fisher’s Hotel is a traditional Scottish hotel, located in the centre of the beautiful holiday resort of Pitlochry, with its clear sparkling air, beautiful scenery and rich clan history. The hotel has recently undergone a refurbishment programme and now offers the Courtyard Restaurant and three bars including the popular Kingfisher Pub. All bedrooms are en-suite with bath or shower rooms, TV and tea and coffee making facilities.
