The recent release of The Great Gatsby has rekindled interest in the glamour of the Jazz Age but Gatsby’s mansion pales in comparison to the castle of a Scottish king.
Today’s Big Deal is with Airth Castle Hotel and Spa near Airth.
It is now part of the award-winning Aurora Hotel Collection but it used to be owned by the family of Robert the Bruce.
Dating back to the 14th century, Airth Castle Hotel and Spa is one of Scotland’s most exclusive retreats and it nestles in beautiful parkland and gardens in the heart of Stirlingshire.
Open seven days a week, the offer is for two people to enjoy a relaxing overnight stay in a classic double or twin room at the hotel.
While the original castle is several hundred years old, the hotel has been sympathetically refurbished and developed to offer all the comfort, luxury and facilities that you would expect in the 21st century.
Sumptuous bathrooms with luxury amenities, WiFi and wide screen televisions with satellite TV are standard.
Guests also have the option to upgrade to a castle double room or hotel junior suite for a supplement of £35 per room per night, payable directly to the hotel.
As well as a full Scottish breakfast, a two course dinner (starter and main) up to the value of £20 per guest is included in this offer. A glass of house wine for each diner is also part of the deal.
Set beneath a dramatic pyramid of glass, the Grill Room restaurant is a dramatic focal point of the hotel.
Using locally sourced ingredients, the kitchen produces dishes inspired by the grand grill rooms of London’s illustrious hotels.
Typical dishes might be the shellfish bisque, warm onion tart or the Porterhouse steak burger served with red onions, gherkins, crisp salad, mature cheddar, bacon rashers and tomato relish.
The welcoming lounge and piano bar are popular for pre and post-dinner drinks.
With today’s offer, guests can make full use of the leisure facilities in the spa. As well as relaxation areas, there is a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, solarium and, for the more energetic, a fully equipped gym.
The spa also has six exquisite treatment rooms where guests can indulge in treatments such as an Elemis facial; deep muscle massage or makeover (not included in offer).

Set in an outstanding location and surrounded by countryside, Airth Castle Hotel and Spa is the perfect venue for a get-together with family, an intimate rendezvous or a party with friends. As the icing on the cake, the hotel is easily accessible from the major Scottish cities.
