Hoping for that autumn break? Bank manager says no?

Never mind – today’s Big Deal offers a taste of the luxury life afloat, in the midst of glorious Scottish scenery.

The deal whisks you to Tarbert in Argyll for a unique stay in a luxury barge. Don’t worry about finding your sea legs – you will stay safely moored, with glorious views across the harbour.

Onboard luxury

Belonging to the Anchor Hotel in Tarbert, the barge is the most luxurious accommodation in this part of Argyll.

The cabin décor features chic furnishings, maritime wood tones and all the modern amenities. These include wet rooms with power showers, Arran Aromatics toiletries, wireless broadband and i-home Bluetooth connective radio/docking station.

Available seven days, the Big Deal is for two people to have an overnight stay in a kingsize double cabin with full Scottish breakfast, and a bottle of wine and petit fours on arrival.

Options two and three extend the stay for two or three days for those who want to linger a little longer (£184 for two nights, £259 for a three nights).

Out and about

If life aboard inspires the urge to head out to sea, the islands of Islay, Arran or Gigha are a ferry ride away.

This is an historic region with Bruce’s castle in Tarbert, and the beautiful, well-preserved Skipness Castle a few miles to the South. There are even older relics at Kilmartin Glen, with its ancient standing stones.

Whisky aficionados will enjoy tracing the distillery trail around the islands and the Cowal Peninsula.
