Is the thought of Christmas to-do lists already causing you to break out in a cold sweat?
Treat yourself to some breathing space with today’s Big Deal on a chilled out overnight stay at the luxurious Macdonald Crutherland House hotel.
Including a bottle of wine in your room, a three course dinner and use of the hotel’s leisure facilities, it is the perfect antidote to the pre-Christmas rush.
Country house charm
Set in 37 acres of peaceful wood and parkland on the outskirts of East Kilbride, Macdonald Crutherland House was built in 1705 as a dower house for Lady Dowager of Torrance Castle.
Now a four star, country house hotel, Macdonald Crutherland House is a comfortable spot for a convenient getaway.
Available seven days a week, this relaxing offer is for two people to enjoy a one night stay in standard twin or double room.
Large beds, a hot drinks tray and luxury en-suites are standard in the rooms and WiFi is available.
As well as a full Scottish breakfast, the offer includes a three course dinner in the hotel’s very well regarded restaurant.
The Big Deal also includes a bottle of house wine in your room on arrival and full use of the hotel’s leisure facilities.
Saturday night stays will be charged a £20 supplement.
2 AA Rosettes
Dinner in The Restaurant is a gastronomic treat. Hung with a collection of paintings from the old manor, The Restaurant has been awarded two AA Rosettes for its imaginative take on Scottish dishes.
Menus change seasonally but typical choices might include the haunch of Athol Estate venison pudding with spiced red cabbage and broccoli florets or the roast North Sea cod wrapped in pancetta and served with wilted greens and sautéed Jerusalem artichokes.
Take it easy after your meal with a dram in the Cocktail Bar and Lounge which also serves fresh food all day, including afternoon tea.
The hotel’s Vital Health and Wellbeing Club is an elegant spot and full use of the leisure facilities is part of the deal. The eighteen metre pool has glass walls which fill the room with light and allow you to gaze out onto the hotel’s carefully tended parkland. Robes and slippers are included in the offer.
Soak up the heat of the sauna; take a tranquil turn around the pool or simply relax poolside and enjoy the views.

‘What a great find this was… what a lovely hotel. The staff were polite and despite there being weddings on both nights, the hotel coped very well with the weddings and their other guests. The bedroom was very comfortable, the food was exceptional and the spa was outstanding. Cannot really say any more than that.’
