From Vikings to the Clearances via Jacobite legends, the Isle of Skye has had an incredibly colourful history.
Paint your own picture of this beautiful island with today’s Big Deal on a two night stay at Skeabost Country House Hotel in the north of Skye.
Loch Snizort location
Located in private grounds on the edge of Loch Snizort, Skeabost Country House Hotel is offering a relaxing, two consecutive night stay for two people in a standard or double room. While Skeabost Hotel may have old and deep roots, it also has modern comforts and features such as WiFi and ensuite rooms.
The Big Deal is valid 7 days a week with the offer split into two options. Guests arriving Sun-Thurs should purchase option 1 while, for Fri/Sat arrivals, simply select option 2 at checkout.
A delicious three course dinner for two is included on the first night as is a full Scottish or continental breakfast on both mornings.
As well as a bottle of house wine in your room on arrival, the deal includes unlimited golf on the hotel’s own nine hole, eighteen tee course which weaves its way through the picturesque, landscaped, loch side gardens.
Hunting lodge history
Originally built as a hunting lodge by the MacDonalds, the hotel is steeped in history and has an enchanting period feel which is helped by roaring open fires.
In season, there is fishing available (additional fees payable) on the hotel’s private trout and salmon river. Skye is also famous for its challenging climbing and breath-taking walking opportunities not to mention its historical attractions such as Dunvegan Castle.
Great food created with the finest, locally sourced seasonal ingredients is available in the handsome, wood panelled dining room. Guests can end their evening with a drink in the billiards room or just relax with a malt whisky in the Cocktail Bar.
A relaxing gift
With vouchers valid until the 30th of March 2013, this offer would make a great Christmas present for a loved one but would also be perfect for anyone keen to avoid the worst of the build-up to Christmas.
Skeabost Country House Hotel has hosted guests for a very long time. This is what one of the more recent visitors thought on TripAdvisor:
‘Lovely island escape. Although the hotel could use a splash of paint on the outside, once you’re inside – the beautiful decor, antique woodwork and atmosphere will sway your first impression. It’s a grand hotel with clean, well looked after rooms. The staff are friendly, helpful and always available to answer any questions you may have about the hotel, or the Island. Cat and Jamie were the two that we had most communication with – and they were great!’
