Mini-break in Highland hotel
Today’s Big Deal is for two people to indulge in a relaxing one or two night dinner, bed and breakfast stay at the atmospheric Ballachulish Hotel in Argyll. As part of the deal, there will be a bottle of wine waiting in your room on arrival.
Dramatically located at the foot of Glencoe and on the shores of both Loch Linnhe and Loch Leven, the Ballachulish Hotel is the ideal spot for a romantic break; a walking holiday or just a chance to relax and breathe some clean, fresh air.
The hotel is equipped with mod cons such as WiFi but the comfortable bedrooms reflect the building’s Highland heritage in their traditional decor.
Use of leisure centre
Roaring log fires and the baronial architecture of the Ballachulish make it a welcoming spot to linger over a book and a dram. The more energetic might choose to use the pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and exercise room in the nearby Leisure Centre.
Another attraction is the Glencoe Mountain Resort. With seven ski lifts and nineteen pistes to choose from, the resort offers skiers plenty of action.
On a gentler note, guests at the Ballachulish are welcome to one complimentary round of golf at the nine hole Dragon’s Tooth Golf Course next door to the hotel.
The Bulas Bar and Bistro at the Ballachulish Hotel have a stylish contemporary atmosphere and the kitchen prepares daily changing menus which make the most of seasonal, local produce.
As well as a full cooked, Scottish breakfast, today’s Big Deal means that both guests can tuck into a delicious three course dinner from the Bistro’s set menu.
