If you have ever heard the term ‘winter wonderland’ but wondered where to find such a place (certainly not on the slushy high street) then we can finally reveal its top secret location…
It is Loch Lomond & The Trossachs, of course. The whole area becomes covered in frosty magic in the colder months (think red squirrels peeking through snow-tipped conifers and you get the picture).
So why not treat someone to a cosy winter escape as a Christmas gift with today’s Big Deal? Ideally, in a country house spa hotel like Buchanan Arms Hotel & Leisure, with dinner and Prosecco thrown in as well.
Whether your loved one would enjoy a rosy-cheeked lochside walk, cosy dram in front of an open fire or sinking into a heated swimming pool, this would make an escape to remember.
Country house hotel stay
Available seven nights a week, this Big Deal is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a classic double or twin room with a bottle of Prosecco on arrival, a cooked Scottish breakfast, full use of the leisure facilities and a two course dinner for each guest.
All the rooms are ensuite and individually decorated. Classic rooms are equipped with a hairdryer, hospitality tray and satellite TV. There is free WiFi throughout the hotel.
This country house escape is on the famous West Highland Way walkers’ route in Drymen. Other facilities include the Relax leisure club with swimming pool, Salmon Leap restaurant, lounge bar and even a conservatory with an open fire.
Conveniently close to Glasgow but far enough away to offer peace and tranquillity, this is the ideal spot for an autumn treat, winter chill out session or post-Christmas getaway.
This deal is available until 31st March 2019.
Fresh and local
A full cooked Scottish breakfast and a two course dinner from the seasonal table d’hôte menu in the Salmon Leap Restaurant are included in the deal.
Local produce, freshly prepared to order is the central theme of the menu. The chefs produce dishes which are simple but stylish and feature many tried and tested, traditional Scottish favourites.
With a wide selection of single malts, the welcoming snug bar, lounge and conservatory – did we mention the open fire? – are all ideal for a drink before or after dinner.
Spa and leisure club
Guests also have full access to the Relax Health and Fitness Club at the Buchanan Arms.
This state of the art club features a 14m indoor heated pool, spa bath, sauna, steam room, squash court and aerobics studio. There is also a fully equipped gymnasium.
Here is a recent glowing guest review of Buchanan Arms Hotel & Leisure on TripAdvisor:
‘We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Scottish country house hotel. Room was spacious and clean. Breakfast catered to all and included a wide range of cereals, fruit selection and hot food. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. This hotel is a great base to discover Loch Lomond. A car is necessary. Lots of walking trails close by. Drymen itself is a quaint Scottish village with a good choice of restaurants. The hotel restaurant is great too.’
Perfect post-festive getaway
The best thing about a Highland spa break is that, no matter what the weather is like, you can bliss out in the pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. That’s why it would make a lovely Christmas surprise.
With today’s Big Deal, you and your special person can enjoy a relaxing overnight stay at the Buchanan Arms Hotel & Leisure. With a lovely chilled bottle of Prosecco on arrival, two course meal and cosy bar to snuggle up in, this has everything needed for a romantic getaway.
