Holiday at Home in Scotland

Holiday at Home in Scotland
Why should we holiday at home?

Scots have been urged not to go on holiday abroad this year to help prop up the economy in Scotland.
Many families face financial hardship and therefore the holiday overseas is out of the question.
The collapse of stirling makes it difficult to afford to take a family abroad. The pound now buys fewer euros and dollars thus making eating out and paying for hotels more expensive.
Taking a break in scotland is the perfect solution to a frail pound.
How about choosing a self catering break there are many reasons for selecting a cheap holiday in Perth as a central location.
