Sleepy Sporran Tour Catering
To enhance the totally Scottish experience on our tours we aim to serve the majority of our catering in the great outdoors. The Scottish weather is renown for showing all four seasons in a day but our picnic lunches tend to be memorable despite the weather. The cost of this catering is included in the stated tour prices.
Our normal tour catering is;
- Mid morning break with coffee and shortbread / flapjack
- Champagne picnic lunch - a selection of savoury pies and pastries, cold meats and smoked salmon (platter or sandwiches), salads, cheeses and a 'sweet treat'. A 175ml glass of champagne or non-alcoholic Elderflower wine. Tea, coffee and water also available.
- Mid afternoon break with tea/coffee and cake (maybe indoors)
We aim to take each of these breaks at a location with toilet facilities and whilst all breaks can be adjusted to suit your day we suggest the lunch halt is kept to about the one hour allowance planned for each tour.
Should your tour be on a day when the weather is particularly poor we offer the alternative facility of stopping at designated bistro’s and hotels for the catering stops.
Special food requests (eg. for dietary requirements) are possible and we would try to accommodate all reasonable request provided they are notified to us at the time of booking.
For Exclusive Tours catering may be varied and should be discussed with us when making your booking enquiry.
On Winter Tours (November through March) our catering changes to include more hot food and drinks. Details will be available at the time of booking.
Wherever possible all of our food and drink is sourced /produced locally in Perthshire. The artisan sandwiches, salads and pastries selection are all prepared daily by the team at the Cateran Cafe, Blairgowrie. Our pork pies are from local butchers, Irvines and smoked salmon is supplied by the Dunkeld Smokehouse.
Visitor Attraction Entry Fees and Information
The ‘Main tour landmarks’ descriptions for each tour are intended to give an outline of each tour route and flag up the more prominent places / attractions along the route.
To make the most of the day and create a balance between journey times and visit stops, each section of the tour has a rough time allocation so that each tour is made up of places to view in passing / photoshops and places / attractions where we make a visit stop and are granted general entry to the grounds or general access to the attraction.
The relevant entry fees to these grounds / attractions are included in the tour prices. Additional 'guided tours’ (and their cost) are also included where specifically stated in the tour descriptions but please note all other optional tours or access arrangements are excluded.
On all tours we issue a pack with information about the places the tour visits. This is a combination of leaflets, guide books and a map and varies in content depending on the tour.
