While we don’t recommend hibernating for the entire winter, the thought of spending a night snuggled up somewhere secluded sure appeals.
Take up today’s Big Deal on an overnight stay at Macdonald Houstoun House Hotel and treat yourself to a cosy winter getaway.
Set in 22 acres of beautiful woodlands, just west of Edinburgh, Macdonald Houstoun House is an elegant country hotel and retreat.
Once visited by Mary Queen of Scots, the historic building has the classic grace of a 16th century Tower House.
The hotel’s Vaulted Bar is particularly appealing at this time of year. Three connected rooms, all kept toasty with large open fireplaces, the bar is in the old cellars of the tower.
