We’ve done it. Our Big Deal boffins have finally cracked the formula for a perfect getaway break.
First, take one small, perfectly formed and loving restored 17th century drovers inn in Argyll on the West Coast of Scotland.
Stir in friendly and welcoming staff; log fires in the bars; some fifty or so connoisseur whiskies, a tempting wine list and a cracking selection of real ales.
Set it all in a stunning loch side location close to Oban and Lochgilphead and what do you get?
Today’s Big Deal on a winter break at the gorgeous Galley of Lorne in Ardfern.
Full Scottish breakfast
Available seven days a week, this Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a one or two night stay in a standard twin or double room at The Galley of Lorne Inn.
Their infamous Highlander Full Scottish breakfast will be served in the morning to set you up for a day of adventure.
If a belly buster isn’t your thing then guests can choose from a wide selection of lighter breakfast dishes.
Bedrooms are well set up for a comfortable stay with LCD TV, satellite Freeview channels, iPod docking facility, free wireless internet access, hospitality tray and a comprehensive guest information book.

The restaurant at The Galley is renowned for its quality and many diners travel miles to eat here.
Guests can enjoy the best ingredients that the local land and waters can provide. Menus change seasonally but typical ingredients include Orkney scallops, West Coast mussels, Argyll lamb, and local pigeon, all creatively prepared to create mouth-watering dishes.

‘We have just returned from a weekend at Galley of Lorne Inn. It was fantastic. We had a wonderful weekend. The Inn itself is in a beautiful location and has a large garden with lots of outdoor seating. Although a very old building, the Inn is very attractive inside and beautifully warm with easy to control heating in the rooms.’
