Is there someone in your life whose soul is invigorated by the Scottish landscape?
Who feels most at home surrounded by lochs and mountains and miles and miles of majestic countryside?
If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for them, you may as well stop now. We have it right here:
A one or two night stay with a full Scottish breakfast and dinner spend at Arrochar Hotel on the edge of Loch Long.
Available to use until the end of March, this is the perfect chance to whisk that outdoors enthusiast away for a break they will love.
A former coaching inn situated at the foot of the ‘Arrochar Alps’ on the shore of Loch Long, the hotel is in the middle of some of Europe’s most stunning scenery.
Within easy striking distance of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park as well as the Argyll Forest Park, the Arrochar Hotel is ideal for ramblers and hill walkers – there are a number of Munros in the area.
Convenient escape from the city
Around a 36 mile drive from Glasgow, the hotel has free on-site parking. Arrochar and Tarbet train station is a little over 2km from the hotel if you aren’t driving.
Option one is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a double or twin room at the Arrochar hotel. The offer includes a full Scottish breakfast and a £40 food and drink spend per couple.
Option two is for two people to enjoy two consecutive nights in a double or twin room, a full Scottish breakfast each morning and a £40 food and drink spend on the first night of stay.
A rolling refurbishment programme of the hotel is taking place over 2018.
Both options are available seven days a week. There is a £20 supplement for Saturday night stays.
See and do near Arrochar
As we mentioned, there are a number of Munros begging to be bagged as well as more gentle loch side strolls to be had from the hotel.
If you fancy climbing a Corbett rather than a Munro, walking routes to the twin-peaked Cobbler start just outside the hotel.
For hardcore thrill-seekers, Loch Long is renowned for wreck diving.
The nearby Blairvadach Outdoor Education Centre also offers a range of land and water-based activities, from rock climbing to kayaking.
Alternatively, guests can simply relax with a book in the lounge bar or just admire the magnificent loch views.
Many guests have enjoyed their stay at Arrochar Hotel and posted reviews of their experiences. The following excerpts are from recent TripAdvisor reviews:
‘Enjoyable stay… Easy, quick and very friendly check-in, dinner booked and up to our room. Clean, very spacious with bath and shower, flat screen Freeview TV, free WiFi and a loch view! Dinner was great. Hot, well cooked and very tasty; compliments to the chef… Overall – much improved on our last visit and although the hotel does look a bit tired here and there, the staff are very friendly, the room was clean… Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.’
‘What a fantastic hotel. We paid a little extra for a loch view and we were not disappointed. It was stunning! The room was clean and perfect… The food was very tasty and plentiful and the breakfast great. Highly recommend this place.’
Valid until 31st March, this Big Deal would be perfect for a break exploring Argyll.
With the snow atop the surrounding mountains and the first signs of spring beginning to burst through the ground, it is a spectacular time of year to visit the region.
Whether your gift recipient wants to clamber atop the surrounding munros or simply relax in the cosy hotel, they will love this chance the chance to get away from it all in the glorious Scottish countryside.
