If the most fun you have each day comes from guessing what type of sandwiches are in your colleagues lunch boxes, you need to get out more.

Grab today’s Big Deal on a two night stay in the welcoming Boat Hotel near Aviemore and take advantage of the extensive range of activities on the doorstep.

From snow sports at the Cairngorm Mountain resort to wildlife watching via golf, fishing and hiking, the countryside surrounding the four star Boat Hotel is packed with opportunities for outdoor excitement.

Two nights in classic room

Available seven days a week, option one of this Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a two consecutive night stay in a classic double or twin room at The Boat Hotel with a full Scottish breakfast each morning.

Option two, also available seven days a week, is for two people to enjoy a two consecutive night B&B stay at The Boat Hotel with a three course dinner in the Boat Bistro each evening.

Family-run hotel

The breakfasts at The Boat Hotel are pretty special. As an alternative to the full Scottish breakfast, you can order anything from delicate smoked Scottish haddock to meltingly beautiful eggs Florentine. Breakfast also offers a range of cold dishes and freshly baked pastries from the larder.

If you choose option two and take dinner in The Boat Bistro then you are in for a treat. The kitchen is renowned for their imaginative take on the best Scottish produce.

The menus change regularly but typical starters might be the seared breast of wood pigeon served with confit leg, sweet potato purée and redcurrant jus while popular main courses include choices like the Highland venison casserole.

Open fire

The Osprey Bar has a very tempting collection of malt whisky – perfect for relaxing with in front of the open fire.

Happy guests

The Boat Hotel has earned plenty of positive reviews from happy guests. This is what one had to say recently on TripAdvisor. We’ve cut it for length but not meaning:

‘We loved it. Staff were warm and welcoming and provided great service. The Estate room was nice and comfortable and the bathroom with its roll top bath was gorgeous. We loved the dining rooms, beautiful and tasteful, and, with the log fire on, was just perfect. The food was fantastic and my husband said the Boat Lager was nice too. The location is handy for lots of attractions. We visited the Highland Wildlife Park and got last minute tickets for the Santa Express. We even got a bit of sledging in at Aviemore. We will definitely be visiting the hotel again!!’

The great outdoors is waiting. All you have to do is grab it with today’s Big Deal on a two night stay at The Boat Hotel.
