It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  Okay, maybe just a little like Christmas for those of you not ready to embrace the season yet.

One guaranteed way to get in the spirit of things though – a Christmas market!  The smell of delicious food.  The joy of discovering unique, hand-crafted gifts.  The jingles of carols.  Enough mulled wine to power Santa’s sleigh.  An hour at a Christmas market and you are guaranteed to be ho-ho-hoing with the best of them.

Thankfully Highland Perthshire is full of jolly holiday celebrations to help you get in the mood.  To spread the cheer, we have picked some of the best festive fun that Big Tree Country has to offer.

Aberfeldy Christmas Market
30th November 2019

Santa Claus is coming to town! and he is bringing his reindeers. Lots of fun to be had in Aberfeldy including a parade, Santa’s Grotto and Christmas light switch-on.  There is also a Christmas market at the town square and the Birks Cinema.  A great opportunity to pick up a gift for that hard to buy for person in your life.

Pitlochry Christmas Festival
7th December 2019

Pitlochry is set to be a little extra magical on the 7th December as it transforms into a Christmas wonderland.  A Christmas market, festive menus, a winter barbecue and lots of activities for the elves in the family.  The fun concludes with the switch-on of the Christmas tree lights.
