What is the view from your window? Any sign of golden eagles? A glimpse of colourful fishing boats? Majestic mountains?
If the answer is no then feast your eyes on today’s Big Deal on a two night stay at the Caledonian Hotel in Ullapool.
The hotel looks out over the village’s picturesque harbour to Loch Broom and is just a short drive from Inverpolly National Nature Reserve, home to golden eagles, pine martens and even wild cats.
Leckmelm Shrubbery and Arboretum, Lael Forest Garden and the famous Inverewe Garden, not to mention the Corrieshalloch Gorge and the Falls of Measach are all nearby.
What are you waiting for?
2 night stay
This dazzling Big Deal is for two people to enjoy two nights in The Caledonian Hotel in Ullapool.
As well as a bottle of house wine in your room on arrival, you will enjoy a full cooked breakfast each morning and, on your first night, a three course dinner.
The menu in the Mackenzie Restaurant changes on a seasonal basis but a typical dish in the autumn months might be the venison steak with a plum and watercress compote and a juniper berry jus.
The Caley Inn Bistro offers more casual meals in a lively setting.
With its real fire and views of the harbour, the Caledonian Lounge is a popular spot, particularly in the evenings, when traditional Scottish entertainment is provided three nights a week.
See and do
As we noted above, the area around The Caledonian Hotel has no shortage of beautiful scenery but Ullapool itself also has lots to offer.
As well as Ullapool Guitar Festival and the Loopallu rock festival, over the next few months, the town will host numerous theatre pieces, several ceilidhs, folk gigs and a performance of La Traviata by Scottish Opera.
If you are looking for tranquillity then Ullapool can provide but it’s also a lively spot when it decides to party.
