Wintry lochs and indeed lakes are best appreciated when you have hot tea and warm scones to hand.
Enjoy the lakeside views with today’s Big Deal on an overnight break at the gorgeous Lake of Menteith Hotel.
If you want to whisk away a loved one for a romantic, winter adventure then this Big Deal at this lovely Port of Menteith hotel will fit the bill very snugly.
Part of the Trossachs National Park but just an hour from Glasgow or 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 and Country Hotel of the Year.
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.
Valid seven days a week, this great offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight break in a classic double or twin at the Lake of Menteith Hotel.
A full Scottish breakfast each morning is included in the offer as are tea and scones on arrival.
All the rooms have been recently refurbished and come with Tunnocks treats, mineral water plus cafetiere coffee and tea in-room. Free access WiFi is available throughout the ground floor of the hotel.
There is a £20 per night supplement on Friday and Saturday night stays.
Finest Scottish produce
A full Scottish breakfast is included in the Big Deal. If you also opt to take lunch or dine in the hotel then you are in for a treat.
The Port Bar offers casual dining and a divine malt selection along with an open fire and large windows looking out onto the Lake.
In the Waterfront Restaurant, you’ll find the finest Scottish produce simply prepared to compliment the breathtaking views out the windows.
Popular dishes include main courses such as the glazed beef short rib with potato dauphinoise, mixed vegetables and a star anise jus.
Alternatively, tackle the moules frites – a kilo of steamed West Coast mussels with garlic, shallots, white wine, cream and chunky chips.
