‘Today’s rain is tomorrow’s whisky’ so goes the old Scottish saying.
Now that’s what we call putting a jaunty spin on our weather.
Another way to put a positive spin on the current damp climate is to get yourself off on a country house hotel break to the Highlands (whisky optional).
Which is exactly what you can do with today’s Big Deal for an one or two night stay for two at Drumdevan Country House Hotel, just outside of Inverness.
Historic country house hotel
The Big Deal is for a one or two night stay for two at the Drumdevan Country House Hotel in queen superior or executive room. A continental breakfast is included.
Dating all the way back to 1800, Drumdevan House is a Grade B listed building and once the home of a wealthy Scottish lord. Now you can enjoy the laird and lady experience yourself in this woodland hotel just two miles outside of Inverness city centre.
The hotel has a river running through the grounds that flows directly into Loch Ness, which itself is only a ten minute journey away. Drumdevan is also handy for a variety of excellent restaurants, plus world class golf courses and natural attractions. Nearby is Inverness Botanic Gardens, Inverness Cathedral and Eden Court Theatre.
Facilities include free WiFi, extensive free self-parking and luggage storage.
There is the option to upgrade to a large suite for a small supplement of up to £35, payable direct to the hotel.
Comfy rooms with Netflix
All rooms at the Drumdevan are decorated in neutral shades combined with cheerful splashes of colour. Each has a king-sized bed, sitting area, desk, ensuite bathroom, TV with Netflix, free WiFi, desk, hairdryer, and hot drink making facilities. There is a wheelchair-friendly room available and you can also upgrade to a four-poster room.
Your complimentary continental breakfast will be brought straight to you, meaning you can enjoy a relaxing morning with the perk of a late checkout.
Breakfast for two will include fruit, bread rolls, croissants, yoghurt, cereal, meat, cheese, fruit juice, tea, coffee and a variety of condiments.
