Hilton Dunkeld House Takes Aim at Lovers of Scottish History with New Castles and Arrows Package

DUNKELD, Scotland, 2012-08-12 — /travelprnews.com/ — Hilton Dunkeld House, located in Perthshire, has created a two day ‘Castles and Arrows’ experience to celebrate the launch of Disney Pixar’s Brave.

Destined to pierce the heart of every fan and history lover, the hotel is inviting guests to discover the castles of Glamis, Blair and Scone which are all located within 30 miles of the hotel. Scotland’s turbulent history has left a lasting mark on the landscape in the shape of the many castles, fortresses and tower houses that pepper the countryside. These imposing structures all have the power to fire the imagination and there’s undoubtedly a little bit of each of these in Brave’s Castle DunBroch.

As part of their stay, guests will also be given an archery taster session to test their skills with a bow. Guests can shoot arrows in the hotel’s 280 acre woodland estate which was originally home to the Earls of Atholl; dating back to 1529, it is situated in an area rich in beauty, wildlife and history.

Today the hotel is a leading leisure resort within a short drive of the major cities of Scotland and home to an abundance of outdoor activities within its estate including fishing, shooting and driving.

The ‘Castles and Arrows’ package includes:

  • Two night stay in Hilton guest room for two adults
  • Dinner each evening in the Garden restaurant
  • Full Scottish breakfast each morning
  • Complimentary dram of whisky on arrival at the hotel
  • Complimentary use of the hotel’s extensive leisure facilities
  • Entry for two adults to Glamis, Blair and Scone castles
  • Taster of archery lesson for two adults

This package is priced from £235 per room and is available midweek and weekend from now through to December 2012. Additional nights are also available as well as a family package.
Prices upon request.

The hotel sits within a unique area of Perthshire called ‘Big Tree Country’ and the grounds of the hotel include one of the most significant landscapes and tree collections in Scotland. The hotel estate contains an extraordinary collection of rare and unusual trees including some UK and Irish ‘Champion Trees’ – the largest examples of their species to be found in the whole of the UK and Ireland. The entire hotel estate lies within the River Tay National Scenic Area.
