The leaves are on the turn and Scotland’s countryside is about to burst into a Technicolor blaze.
Admire autumn’s painting skills with today’s Big Deal at Strathblane Country House.
Within easy reach of the Central Belt, this charming hotel offers a warm welcome; beautiful scenery and a sense of tranquillity – perfect for a refreshing getaway.
Built in 1874 as a family home, Strathblane Country House retains its traditional character while offering comfortable, elegant surroundings and warm hospitality.
Available seven days a week, the Big Deal is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a King room. Your stay will start with a glass of fizz on arrival.
Each of the individually styled, ensuite bedrooms has its own unique character and includes features such as a king size bed, free WiFi, Freeview channels and hot drinks facilities.
Depending on availability, guests may have the option to upgrade to a Superior room for an additional £30.
As well as a full cooked breakfast, the offer includes a two course dinner for each guest.
The hotel’s talented team of chefs take pride in producing great food from fresh local produce. The emphasis is on seasonality and quality of ingredients.
The menus change regularly but a typical starter might be the breast of pigeon on a port reduction with micro salad and edible flowers followed by a main course of seared fillet of sea bream on a bed of dauphinoise potato with asparagus and chilli dip.
Although only half an hour from Glasgow and Stirling, Strathblane Country House is surrounded by some of Scotland’s most beautiful scenery. The Campsie Fells, Dumgoyne and Ben Lomond are all within easy striking distance.
While not part of the Big Deal, guests can book a falconry session at the bird of prey centre in the hotel grounds.
Whether you want a hands-on session or simply to watch these magnificent birds swooping from the sky, Strathblane Country House can hook you up with a feathered friend.
Alternatively, simply relax with a book and perhaps a dram in the hotel’s Fireside Lounge.
Under new management since last year, Strathblane Country House has plenty of new friends on TripAdvisor where it is rated a healthy 4/5:
‘Lovely. Great staff, excellent food, beautiful surroundings, warm, friendly with many luxurious extras. The service was exemplary. Delightful wines on offer matched with the very tasty food. The WiFi is fast and quick… it was a wonderful way to relax. I wish we could have stayed longer and explored the area and tried the other dishes on the menu.’
Easy to reach but with a tranquil atmosphere that feels a long way from the city, Strathblane Country House is perfect for an autumn break.
Snap up this Big Deal and book in for a deep breath of fresh country air.
