No island is complete if it doesn’t provoke at least a few rumours about buried treasure.
Unearth a hidden gem with today’s Big Deal on a two night break at the luxurious Chandlers Hotel on the Isle of Bute.
One of the easiest Scottish islands to access, Bute has two ferry links to the mainland and excellent train links.
It is quick to get from the Central Belt but feels gloriously remote from the frantic pace of life in the city.
Today’s offer is for two people to relax with a two consecutive night stay in a classic double or twin room in the welcoming Chandlers Hotel.
With a brilliant location on Ascog Bay, it’s a very popular spot on the Isle of Bute.
A full Scottish breakfast is included in the offer and, should you choose to take dinner in the hotel on both evenings then a complimentary bottle of wine will be offered to guests.
Well known for the warmth of its welcome, Chandlers is a spacious, detached property in a superb position with unsurpassed views over the Clyde to the Ayrshire coast and beyond.
Each of the nine gorgeous bedrooms have well appointed en-suite bathrooms stocked with a selection of quality toiletries, cotton wool, tissues, shaving mirror and good selection of soft towels.
This offer is valid until early October however vouchers must be redeemed by 31.07.13. A £25 per night supplement applies to stays from the 15th of June 2013.
Fresh & local
Guests are welcome to dine in the hotel’s Elegant Restaurant. Fresh local produce is to the fore on the regularly changing menus.
Popular dishes include the traditional Cullen skink; house seafood platter and the Bute lamb cutlets which are grilled and served with a cherry, rosemary and red wine glaze.
The Outdoor Terrace is available for sipping drinks before dinner, chatting over coffee after dinner or simply enjoying the magnificent views and listening to the waves break on the shore below.
See & do on Bute
From visiting the neo-Gothic splendour of Mount Stuart to rounds of golf via gentle cycling trips on almost deserted roads, the Isle of Bute offers plenty of fun activities.
