Tips for braving the winter cold in Perthshire

This will probably come as a surprise to no-one but winter in Perthshire can get very chilly. Luckily, for those of you planning on visiting us at Kennacoil for Christmas or early next year, we’ve spent a few winters here and know the best ways for you to keep warm and cosy.

So, without further ado, here are our top tips for braving the winter cold in Perthshire.


This is definitely the best way of keeping warm in winter and instead of wearing one big jumper make sure to wear at least two or three layers. If you’re going to be out and about think about wearing an extra pair of socks and don’t forget to bring your hat and gloves!


There’s no better way to get your body temperature up than keeping active and, thankfully, there’s so many activities for you to do here in Perthshire. We’ve got a number of nearby cycling routes to get your heart racing as well as hiking trails waiting for you to explore.

At Kennacoil we’ve got plenty of wide open spaces for you and the kids to run about in and, if you’ve ever felt like trying activities like rock-climbing or abseiling, you’ll be spoiled for choice with Perthshire being home to many different adventure centres.


A good way to regulate your temperature is to have a warm drink so make sure you pack a flask when you come to Perthshire, so you can have a cup of tea or hot chocolate when you’re on the go.


At Kennacoil we’ve made sure that you’ve got access to the best facilities, so on a cold winter evening you’ve got the option to jump into a hot shower or a nice relaxing bath to warm up.


If you manage a visit to Kennacoil as well as being able to explore the picturesque Perthshire countryside you can curl up afterwards in front of a real wood-burning stove. On those cold winter nights this is the perfect way to cosy up from the cold outside.

If you’d like to rent a cottage at Kennacoil with your very own wood-burning stove or you fancy trying your hand at glamping you can contact us here.
