With this being the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year we are going to hear a lot about the monarchy over the coming months.
Take up today’s Big Deal with the Huntly Arms Hotel in Deeside and you’ll be able to say that you have stayed in the same place as the Queen.
The Queen in question is Victoria who sometimes stayed here en route to Balmoral.
Not that Queen Vic is the only notable person to have crashed at the Huntly; many a Jacobite leader also laid their heads at the hotel.
2 night mini-break
This relaxing Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a two night bed and full Scottish breakfast stay at the recently refurbished Huntly Arms Hotel in Aboyne, Deeside.
A three course table d’hote dinner for two on the first night is included and guests will also be welcomed by a bottle of house wine in their room on arrival.
With great opportunities for walking, mountain biking and wildlife watching, you won’t be short of things to do in Royal Deeside but, just to get you started, this deal also includes a pair of tickets for entry to Balmoral Castle.
Probably the oldest coaching house in Scotland, The Huntly Arms Hotel is set in the picturesque village of Aboyne, surrounded by the beautiful Cairngorms Park.
Just a stone’s throw from the River Dee, the Huntly Arms Hotel dates back to 1432 but the 52 ensuite bedrooms have all the amenities that the 21st century traveller expects.
After dining in the Grill Room Restaurant, guests can enjoy a dram in the Dinnie Lounge Bar.
The Huntly Arms Hotel is deep in the Cairngorms, one of Europe’s last wilderness areas but guests won’t feel cut off from civilisation: WiFi is available in all the hotel’s public areas.
