Is there anything finer than a splendid lunch in beautiful surroundings?
It’s a tough call but how about a fine lunch in beautiful surroundings plus an overnight stay in one of Scotland’s most picturesque hotels?
Snap up today’s Big Deal with the Lake of Menteith Hotel in Perthshire and you can enjoy a delicious three course lunch and, if you wish, there is also the option to relax with an overnight stay in this welcoming hotel.
Part of the Trossachs National Park and just an hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh, the Lake of Menteith Hotel was originally a 19th century manse.
Since being bought and revamped in the warm and welcoming style of a classic New England waterfront hotel, it has won numerous awards including Romantic Hotel of The Year 2009 and Country Hotel of 2009.
As the name suggests, the hotel sits by the side of the Lake of Menteith. The glorious views out over the water and to the islands and mountains beyond are broken only by diving osprey and migrating wildfowl.
Option one of today’s offer is for two people to enjoy a fantastic three course meal from a special Big Deal lunch menu. To begin, diners can choose between the soup of the day served with crusty bread and salted butter or the Lake of Menteith fishcake with mixed salad leaves and tartare sauce.
For the main course, decide between local steak pie served with new potatoes and seasonal vegetables and the freshly caught Lake of Menteith trout served with creamed potatoes and seasonal vegetables.
Dessert is a choice between bread & butter pudding served with vanilla ice cream or sticky toffee pudding served with vanilla ice cream.
Make a night of it
Option two is for two people to enjoy a three course lunch as above but also indulge in an overnight stay in a classic double or twin room at the Lake of Menteith Hotel.
All the rooms have been refurbished over the last few years and come with Tunnocks treats, mineral water and cafétiere coffee and tea in-room. Free access WiFi is available throughout the ground floor of the hotel and there is a guest access PC on request.
A full Scottish breakfast is included for guests selecting Big Deal option 2.

‘Wonderful surprise. Spent one night on our tour of the Trossachs. The hotel benefits from an amazing view on Lake Menteith. Dining is on the veranda, the service is impeccable, friendly and efficient. The food was absolutely fabulous. Catch of the day for fish, brilliant burger for my fiancé who’s more into beef than fish and Scottish beer… So all in all, recommended!’
‘Relaxing break by the lake. We had a lake-view room, which was spacious, clean and very nicely decorated. The two comfy chairs by the window overlooking the lake were perfect for relaxing with a good book after a delicious dinner in the restaurant. Breakfast too was fantastic. All of the above, plus friendly, helpful staff and a wonderful base for exploring, make this a perfect destination. We hope to pay another visit in the not too distant future.’
