While we don’t recommend that you quit your job, bin your work outfit and burn down the office, life is too short and precious to spend it all at a desk.
Seize the day with this Big Deal on a romantic stay at the beautiful Taychreggan Hotel on the banks of Loch Awe by Oban.
Taychreggan started life in the 17th century as a cattle drovers’ inn. Now a beautiful, white-washed, country house hotel, the Taychreggan has one of the finest loch-side locations in Scotland.
Majestic mountains; deep forests and stunning lochs make the area a perfect spot for walkers, fishermen, mountain bikers and, of course, romantics. Spend a little time here and it will come as no surprise that the AA awarded the Taychreggan the title of ‘One of Britain’s Most Romantic Hotels’.
However you choose to spend your time, roaring fires, over-stuffed chairs, a snooker room and the welcoming Drovers’ Bar mean that the Taychreggan offers plenty of Highland comforts to return to at the end of the day.
4 star country house
Available seven days a week, today’s Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a relaxing overnight bed and breakfast stay in one of the luxurious loch view junior suites at the four star Taychreggan Hotel.
Option two allows you to enjoy a two consecutive night stay in this tranquil spot – the perfect way to fully recharge your batteries.
The junior suites are all ensuite and feature beautiful fabrics, fluffy dressing gowns, flat screen TVs (limited channels), bottled water, a tea and coffee making tray, hairdryer, Molton Brown toiletries – the list goes on.
A decanter of complimentary sherry will help you settle into your room.
There is a supplement of £25 for all Saturday night stays.
A fantastic, full Scottish breakfast is included in the offer. You can also choose to take dinner, at an additional cost, in the hotel restaurant where the arched windows provide views down Loch Awe.
The proud holder of two AA Rosettes, the kitchen makes the most of local produce on the regularly changing, five course, table d’hote, evening menu.
The current menu includes starters such as sugar cured salmon with pickled vegetables, sweet potato salad and textures of beetroot.
The main course might be a dish such as the five hour, slow cooked pork, sticky ribs, swede purée, garlic cherry tomatoes, buttered Savoy cabbage and pickled chanterelles.
Leave room for dessert. A warm carrot cake with orange and carrot jelly is wowing guests at the moment.

‘Amazing. What a fantastic stay. From the moment we arrived until we left we had a ball. We were met by Fiona who made us feel so welcome. All staff were brilliant, couldn’t do enough for us. Food was brilliant. This is said to be a romantic hotel and would have to agree candles and fairy light were beautiful. Can’t wait to go back. Thank you so much for looking after us xx.’
