As the cast of Grease so memorably noted, summer days have a tendency to drift away.
Seize your chance for some summer fun with today’s Big Deal on a relaxing stay at Moness House Hotel and Country Club, Aberfeldy.
Less than two hours from all of Scotland’s major cities, Moness Resort is quick and easy to get to but feels a long way from the grind of urban life.
Now a welcoming and comfortable, four star, country house hotel, Moness House Hotel started life as a baronial shooting lodge way back in 1758.
Lovingly refurbished to retain the integrity of the original while introducing the essentials of modern day comfort, Moness House and Resort are an ideal base for exploring this beautiful and unique part of Scotland.
Today’s offer is for two people to stay in a splendid Deluxe Room. Furnished to the highest standard, these lovely rooms feature flat screen TV with satellite channels; Internet access; DVD; Egyptian cotton bed linen; hairdryer, iron and hot drinks facilities.
A full Scottish breakfast and full use of the excellent resort facilities are also included.
Option one is for a two consecutive night stay while option two is for an overnight stay.
Upgrades will be available at £10 per night for a Superior Room and £20 per night for a Suite.
This offer is valid seven days a week. There is a £15 per night supplement for Friday and Saturday night stays.
Guests at the hotel are welcome to use all of the resort’s extensive leisure facilities. The changing rooms, steam room, sauna, individual treatment rooms and poolside showers have recently been refurbished while the heated swimming pool is as popular as ever.
Badminton, mini-tennis, squash, table tennis and pool are all available on site or you could indulge in some luxurious treatments in the new Spa Therapy Rooms.
Scottish restaurant in Perthshire
If you choose to take meals other than breakfast at the resort, then Flemmyngs Restaurant offers an excellent choice of fresh meat, fish and game sourced in Perthshire.
The menu is changed daily but typical dishes might be the hot-smoked salmon and smoked salmon with pickled cucumber and Hollandaise; the slow cooked shin of Aberdeen beef with celeriac purée, fondant potato and roasted root vegetables or the Drambuie scented crème brulée with caramelised orange segments and shortbread.
The more informal Terrace offers a great spread of light bites, bar suppers and nibbles.
See & do in Perthshire
The well-presented grounds at Moness Resort are great for leisurely strolls – the duck pond and its family of mallards are always a popular destination. Guests can buy duck food for a £1 from reception – a quick way to make mates with a mallard.
Outside the resort, there are lots of opportunities for water sports, climbing and hill walking. Golfers will be happy to learn that there are over 40 courses nearby and the resort can help with tee times on courses such as Gleneagles.
Alternatively, you could brush up your short game on the resort’s own nine hole putting greens.

‘Lovely hotel. We stayed here for 2 nights bed and breakfast. The resort is located just outside Aberfeldy but is easily walkable into town. The setting is lovely. We stayed in Room 7 which was a very nice room. Nice minimal decor, quite spacious, great bathroom and very quiet. OK, the bed was a bit hard for my taste and the hair dryer wasn’t great but I am being really fussy here. There is free WiFi available and also a computer located in the corridor outside our room for guest use. We had breakfast included…it was part buffet, part cooked to order and was very enjoyable. The staff were all friendly, polite and helpful… Overall a very nice place to stay as a base to explore the surrounding area.’
