What Scotland lacks in tanning opportunities, it makes up in beautiful coastlines.
And with its stunning sunsets, romantic history and fantastic wildlife, few are as beautiful as the West Coast.
See it all with today’s Big Deal on an overnight getaway at the Oban Caledonian Hotel.
Just over two hours from Glasgow by car and conveniently situated on the world famous West Highland Line for guests arriving by rail, Oban is an easy destination for a short break.
Completed with the arrival of the West Highland Railway in 1882, the Oban Caledonian Hotel is one of the town’s landmark hotels and it enjoys a great location by the harbour – perfect for watching the boats come and go to the islands.
Option one of today’s great offer is for two people to have an overnight stay in a double or twin room at the Oban Caledonian. Guests can enjoy a full Scottish breakfast in the morning.
Option two is for a two night stay with a full Scottish breakfast the next morning.
Option one is available Sunday to Thursday only.
Option two is available seven days a week. There is a £10 supplement for Friday and Saturday night stays on this option.
While it dates to Victorian times, the hotel features 21st century facilities such as free WiFi in all 59 of the bedrooms.
In keeping with the hotel’s highland location, each of the Caledonian’s well appointed bedrooms has a traditional theme.
Standard rooms mainly have views to McCaig’s Folly and the Soroba Hills and there is the option to upgrade to sea view rooms which look out over Oban Bay to Kerrera.
Both options include a full Scottish breakfast each morning.
If you choose to take other meals in the hotel then there are two great options.
Featuring a relaxed brasserie ambience and wonderful views of Oban Bay, the informal Café Caledonian has an all day bistro menu.
Alternatively, you could make a night of it and dine in the Restaurant Caledonian. Carefully restored with chandeliers and ornate plasterwork, the Restaurant is a Victorian dining room showcasing the best of Scotland’s larder.
The menu changes regularly and makes the most of local produce and seasonal ingredients. Depending on the time of year, you could tuck-in to dishes made from locally landed seafood, Argyllshire meats or game, and fresh seasonal vegetables.
The dining room also doubles up as the breakfast space each morning. Enjoy a traditional full hearty Scottish breakfast, fresh fruit salad, a selection of cheeses and cold meats, muffins and croissants.
