Handpicked for you – curated deals for 5pm customers
We’re not knocking Norway’s fjords or bashing the beaches of Bora Bora, but when it comes to coastlines, we’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for Scotland’s West Coast.
Enjoy it all with today’s Handpicked Deal on a two night stay in a four star, self catering cottage at Portavadie on Loch Fyne.
Only two hours from Glasgow, Portavadie offers a haven of tranquillity among some of the most striking scenery that the West Coast has to offer.
Each morning, you will be able to wake up to beautiful views of the marina and Loch Fyne while enjoying a coffee on your terrace.
With options for dog-friendly cottages, there’s comfort for the whole family.
Available Sunday to Thursday, this offer is for a two night stay in a two bedroom cottage.
Option 1 includes a welcome bottle of Prosecco for the group or if you choose option 2, this includes a welcome pack for your pooch instead.
Options one and two are available from 1st to 29th March. Options three and four are available from 1st April until 28th June.
Overlooking the marina, the two-bedroom four-star holiday cottages are bright, warm and spacious with wooden floors, colourful rugs, leather sofas and all the modern comforts you might expect.
With one double bedroom with en-suite shower room and one twin bedroom, there is plenty of space to sleep up to four. There is also an additional bathroom.
The open-plan living area has comfy sofas, a flat screen TV, cushions and rug while the kitchen is kitted out with modern appliances to provide you with a true home from home.
Each cottage has its own outdoor seating area along with parking space on your own private driveway.
Pooch packs include towels, treats and a water bowl, meaning you won’t have to worry about packing a separate overnight bag.
Portavadie offers great choices for those nights when you just don’t want to cook.
In the fabulous Marina Restaurant and Bar, guests can enjoy waterfront dining while the Lodge Kitchen and Bar serves hearty portions of home-style food.
Both restaurants use local, seasonal produce including seafood from Loch Fyne and venison from the hills. Please note seasonal changes to restaurant availability and opening times may occur.
See & do
Portavadie, Loch Fyne is the perfect place for an active break. Known as Argyll’s Secret Coast, this area is great for outdoor activities. Go wild on the West Coast with a host of adventures from cycling forest tracks to walking the beautiful coastal paths.
While you are out and about you might see deer, buzzards, otters, golden eagles, red squirrels and even, if you are very lucky, basking sharks.
The wildlife might still in hibernation, if so there is always a trip to Tighnabruaich or Tarbert on the Calmac ferry to explore.
The dog-friendly option is perfect for guests who want to let their canine companions out into the great outdoors and enjoy the wildlife walks as much as they will.
World class spa & leisure
Relax in Portavadie’s superb new spa and leisure with complimentary access to the Leisure Experience included in today’s Handpicked Deal.
A wonderful, light filled, modern space, they have Scotland’s largest heated outdoor infinity pool, as well as spa pools, indoor pool, sauna, gym and fitness suite – all with stunning views of Loch Fyne.
Lots of guests have left glowing reviews on TripAdvisor after a stay at Portavadie. This recent review sums up all that’s wonderful about the place:
‘Portavadie has something for everyone. Had an amazing stay in early October. Rented a lovely cottage within the grounds of the marina with stunning views across grassland, rocky beach and the marina. Took my two Labradors who loved the great outdoors.’
‘The restaurants were both great as were the bars. The prices were all very reasonable and the shop stocked most essentials and had a good range of gifts and clothing. Best thing of all were the staff, well done to them all.’
One of Scotland’s most memorable stretches of coastline is just two hours from Glasgow.
Bring in the summer with today’s Handpicked Deal on a two or three night stay in Portavadie on the shores of Loch Fyne.
