Our walking boots are getting impatient.
They have not been out since Christmas and they are itching to see some action.
Happily, help is at hand with today’s Big Deal from the Arrochar Hotel.
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 glass of fizz on arrival; a full Scottish breakfast and a three course table d’hôte dinner for each guest.
Option two is for two people to enjoy two consecutive nights in a double or twin room at the Arrochar hotel. The offer includes a glass of fizz on arrival; a full Scottish breakfast and a three course table d’hôte dinner on the first night of stay.
Both options include a late check out to noon – no need to rush your breakfast.
A rolling refurbishment programme of the hotel is taking place over 2018.
Both options are available Sunday to Thursday.
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 the 29th of March, this Big Deal would be perfect for a winter break exploring Argyll.
From the mist that hangs over the lochs in the morning to the snow-capped mountain peaks, the region looks beautiful in the winter.
