What’s on your list of essentials for a perfect Highland hotel stay? Excellent Scottish cuisine? Open fire? Gorgeous loch views?
Loch Leven Hotel is an award-winning, quirky little haven in the heart of the Highlands that has its very own gin distillery (as well as the other listed items). Today’s Big Deal for a stay for two will let you toast the blissful loch scenery with a craft G&T in hand.
Plus, to make you feel extra pampered, you’ll also get Prosecco and chocolates on arrival.
Unique and scenic hotel
Nestled at the foot of mighty Glencoe, this historic ferry inn in Onich dates back to the time of Bonnie Prince Charlie and looks out over the point where Loch Leven meets Loch Linnhe.
It’s a family-run hotel with plenty to offer, including dramatic views over the gardens, lochs and mountains; a loch view restaurant, renowned bar, sun deck and even a literature lounge.
As mentioned, Loch Leven Hotel has now opened a craft gin distillery in the grounds, creating its own brand of Highland spiced gin, Devil’s Staircase.
One or two night stay
If all this sounds tempting, then today’s Big Deal offers a one or two night stay for two in a classic twin or double room with breakfast included.
This will include a glass of Prosecco each and chocolates on arrival, plus a late check-out of 1pm.
There will be a supplement of £20 per room, per night for Friday and Saturday stays. Children and dogs can also stay for a supplement.
Individually decorated rooms
Each of the hotel’s twelve en-suite guest rooms is decorated in a contemporary Scottish style with splashes of tartan and thistle motifs.
Features include a flat screen TV, free WiFi, complimentary toiletries, fluffy towels, tea & coffee making facilities, phone and hairdryer. As an added perk, every room includes a book by Scottish author Alexander McCall Smith.
You can upgrade to a loch view room for £15 per room, per night.

‘Wonderful weekend away. Stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is lovely with an excellent location for exploring the surrounding area (Glencoe, Fort William, Ben Nevis etc). We stayed in Room 1 which was clean and very spacious. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The food was great. The views over the loch at breakfast were stunning. The staff are all lovely and very helpful… we would definitely return to this hotel.’
