Spring is in the air which means that we should all be on a refreshing break.
Happily today’s Big Deal on an overnight getaway at the luxurious Macdonald Crutherland House hotel is the perfect pick-me-up after winter’s wind and rain.
Country house charm
Set in 37 acres of peaceful wood and parkland on the outskirts of East Kilbride, Macdonald Crutherland House was built in 1705 as a dower house for Lady Dowager of Torrance Castle.
Now a four star, country house hotel, Macdonald Crutherland House is a comfortable spot for a convenient getaway.
Available seven days a week, this relaxing offer is for two people to enjoy a one night stay in standard twin or double room.
Large beds, a hot drinks tray and luxury en-suites are standard in the rooms and WiFi is available.
As well as a full Scottish breakfast, the offer includes a three course dinner in the hotel’s very well regarded restaurant.
The Big Deal also includes a bottle of house wine in your room on arrival and full use of the hotel’s leisure facilities.
2 AA Rosettes
Dinner in The Restaurant is a gastronomic treat. Hung with a collection of paintings from the old manor, The Restaurant has been awarded two AA Rosettes for its imaginative take on Scottish dishes.
Menus change seasonally but typical choices might include the Seared bavette of 21 day aged Scottish Beef, served with Dauphinoise potatoes, wilted swiss chard, shallot and red wine jus or Belly of outdoor reared pork with black pudding puree and braised red cabbage.
Take it easy after your meal with a dram in the Cocktail Bar and Lounge which also serves fresh food all day, including afternoon tea.
The hotel’s Vital Health and Wellbeing Club is an elegant spot and full use of the leisure facilities is part of the deal. The eighteen metre pool has glass walls which fill the room with light and allow you to gaze out onto the hotel’s carefully tended parkland. Robes and slippers are included in the offer.
Soak up the heat of the sauna; take a tranquil turn around the pool or simply relax poolside and enjoy the views.

‘Great getaway for the girls. I have now had a few nights away at the Macdonald Crutherland House hotel. It has a nice drive to the hotel, lovely hotel on the outside…
I have never been disappointed yet, the treatments have always been good. It’s nice to lie by the pool and go between the sauna and steam room. All staff have always been attentive and food always tasty. The rooms are always clean and tidy and spacious. There is always enough towels, bedding etc… I would (and will) definitely stay here again.’
Whether you fancy a night away with the girls; a romantic evening or simply a break from routine, today’s Big Deal is the perfect introduction to Macdonald Crutherland House.
