The late autumn and winter months can be an ideal time to immerse yourself in Scotland’s wild landscapes. Forest walks in the early morning mist and the sharp light glinting off a morning frost can be breathtaking.
A log cabin in the Argyll countryside offers the perfect escape for a couple or a small group of friends. The region is stunningly scenic, and easily accessible.
Today’s Big Deal offers a tempting escape from the city for a two-night break in this idyllic setting, with a stay in a comfortable log cabin provided by Chase The Wild Goose Lodges. It’s the ideal way to unwind under a star-studded sky.
Beauty and seclusion
Chase The Wild Goose Lodges are situated close to the market town of Dunoon. It’s a spot blessed with all the elements of Scotland’s natural beauty, where coast, mountain and loch combine to create a perfect setting.
The rural location is just 80-90 minutes drive from Glasgow making that escape from the city all that easier.
The Big Deal offers alternatives to suit the size of your group.
Option 1 is for a two-night break in a one bedroom riverside or forest lodge sleeping two adults. Extra nights can be added at £40 per lodge per night.
Option 2 is for a two-night break in a two bedroom forest lodge sleeping up to four adults. Extra nights can be added at £45 per lodge per night.
The lodges are available seven days a week, although Friday and Saturday night stays require a £10 per night supplement. The offer includes a bottle of fizz on arrival.
Riverside Lodges feature a double bedroom with luxury Egyptian cotton bedding, shower-room, open-plan living area with leather sofa, table and chairs, four ring hob, microwave, fridge, toaster, tableware and cutlery, 40” flat screen TV and DVD player and French doors to the deck and river views.

Out and about
Strolling in the superb scenery is an obvious way to spend your break, but there are plenty of additional options, ranging from golf to ornate gardens, mountain biking to wildlife spotting. The cabins are so comfortable, it might be tempting to chill with a book, movie and glass of wine.
