Winter in the city means brown slush, grey days and blue hands.
Winter in the Cairngorms means snow-topped mountains, frost-jewelled branches and pure, clean air.
Make the most of Scotland’s winter wonderland with today’s Big Deal from The Boat Hotel near Aviemore.
Located in Boat of Garten, in the Cairngorms National Park, The Boat Hotel is a friendly, family-run hotel and it offers the perfect location for exploring the great outdoors.
This offer is available until 31st May 2016 and would be ideal for a winter sports break or a romantic getaway.
Available Sunday to Thursday, both options of this offer are for two people to have a two night stay in a classic double or twin room with a full Scottish breakfast each morning and a three course dinner from the market menu on both evenings.
Available to the first hundred customers, option one also includes a chilled bottle of Prosecco and box of chocolates in your room on arrival – the perfect way to start your Highlands break.
The Boat Hotel blends historic Highland charm with the comfort and mod cons you would expect of a 21st century hotel such as digital TVs, WiFi and room service, including breakfast in bed.
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.
Guests will also feel spoiled at dinner. The kitchen uses locally sourced, seasonal products to produce contemporary interpretations of classic British dishes along with a selection of more exotic choices.
The market menu changes regularly but a typical three course meal might include a starter of haggis, neeps and potatoes followed by roast, free range chicken with a dessert of baked chocolate pudding to finish.
The Osprey Bar has a very tempting collection of malt whisky – perfect for relaxing with in front of the open fire.
The Boat Hotel has earned plenty of positive reviews from happy guests. These recent headlines are from TripAdvisor:
