From pool party to island, many ideas can be made more attractive by putting the word ‘private’ in front of them.
Treat your friends and family to an exclusive private dining experience with today’s Big Deal at the gorgeous DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro.
The offer is for ten people to enjoy a spectacular four course private dining experience at the Dunblane hotel. As well as dining from a menu inspired by Nick Nairn, guests will each receive a welcome drink. Alternatively, select option 2 and swap a welcome drink for a cocktail masterclass including 2 cocktails!
It’s a great way to celebrate a landmark birthday, anniversary or simply a brilliant excuse to get together with friends and enjoy a beautiful meal in stunning surroundings.
Recently refurbished, the impressive Doubletree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro sits in ten acres of landscaped grounds and enjoys spectacular views of the Trossachs.
While it feels a long way from the bustle of the cities, it is within an easy 45 minute drive from Glasgow or Edinburgh.
Nick Nairn-inspired menu
Celebrated Scottish chef Nick Nairn is the guiding force at the hotel’s Kailyard Restaurant. The private dining menu is inspired by Chef Nairn’s cooking and, in particular, his extensive use of seasonal, locally sourced produce.
Specific dishes may change according to the ingredients in season but the menu for this offer will be very similar to this:
Chef’s freshly prepared soup of the day with a crusty roll
Nick’s chicken liver parfait, Cumberland sauce, toasted brioche
Smoked Loch Duart Scottish salmon ‘Nick Nairn’ watercress and apple salad, brown bread
Slow braised featherblade of Scotch beef Bourguignon, mustard mash, red wine gravy
Pan-fried fillet of Scrabster cod, roasted baby potatoes, seasonal greens, chive fish cream
Slow braised, spiced pork belly, black pudding, mini-fondant potatoes, caramelised apples and café au lait gravy
250g dry aged, Campbells Gold Prime Scotch Beef rib eye steak, roasted tomato, mushroom, onion rings and fries (£5 supplement)

Nick’s berry trifle, blackcurrant jelly, vanilla custard, crème Chantilly and toasted almonds
Three British cheeses in ‘good Nick’ with handmade chutney
Cocktail master class
Option two of today’s Big Deal means you can add on some more fun with a cocktail master class. Your mixologist guide will show you how to make two tremendous cocktails which each guest can then enjoy.
It could be the perfect way to get your party started.
