Even the most patriotic Scot might struggle to enjoy the Highlands when the weather is wet and windy.
On the other hand, given the weather we are having, we say ‘Pah!’ to Paris and ‘Tish!’ to Tobago because there is nowhere better than Scotland to enjoy a stunning summer.
If you want to soak up some first hand experience of Highland summer beauty then hit the buy button on today’s Big Deal with the Arrochar Hotel.
A former coaching inn situated at the foot of the ‘Arrochar Alps’ on the shore of Loch Long, the hotel is in the middle of some of Europe’s most stunning scenery.
Within easy striking distance of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park as well as the Argyll Forest Park, the Arrochar Hotel is ideal for ramblers and hill walkers – there are a number of Munros in the area.
Option one is for one person to enjoy an overnight break at the Arrochar Hotel. A full Scottish breakfast and three course table d’hote dinner are included in the offer.
Option two would be perfect for a romantic getaway. The offer is for one person to have two consecutive nights in a double or twin room with a loch view.
The offer also includes a three course table d’hote dinner each night with a guaranteed loch view table in the dining room.
Option two also includes a ¼ bottle of champagne per person plus chocolates in your room on arrival.
Both options must be booked for a minimum of two people.

Many guests have enjoyed their stay at Arrochar Hotel and posted reviews of their experiences. The following is from TripAdvisor:
‘We have just spent 3 nights at the Arrochar Hotel and we certainly were not disappointed. The food was very good and well presented with plenty of choice for breakfast and dinner. Our room was clean with towels changed every day. Yes, it is a bit old fashioned and in need of refurbishment but very comfortable none the less. We had a window looking on to Loch Long with a beautiful view. This is a lovely hotel to stay, there are so many places to visit in the area and Loch Lomond is a short drive away. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. I will certainly visit the Arrochar again. Thank you to all the hotel staff for a pleasant stay.’
