For A picnic experience with a difference all roads lead to the Straloch Estate in Perthshire.

Nestled among the hills within the 3,000-acre estate lies the Lunch Hut. Boasting magnificent panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, this hidden gem with its new wild picnics service promises an unforgettable al-fresco dining experiences in a memorable location.

Whether it’s romantic treat for two or a holiday highlight for bigger groups, the remote Lunch Hut serves up charm complete with a wood-burning stove, cosy throws, and furry rugs to combat any windy weather.

Twinkling fairy lights, candles and a table groaning with delicious treats provide a taste of Highland hygge.

Straloch Estate has two stylish self-catering cottages but the wild picnics service is now available to non-residents who are keen to experience the hidden beauty of the area.

Picnics can be accompanied by a private wildlife walk through the estate, taking in an abundance of wildflowers and butterflies, as well as red deer herds and diverse birdlife across three sites of special scientific interest (SSSI). Brown trout fishing on the River Fernate is also available.

Just 20 minutes from Pitlochry, Straloch provides a plentiful larder of venison and game, and the estate’s walled garden is full of seasonal vegetables and herbs providing beautifully fresh produce for the varied menus.
