From witches to wailing banshees to daring escapes by Mary Queen of Scots, Glencoe and Loch Leven are a treasure trove of stories.
So why not create your own romantic story on a one or two night stay for two at a lochside hotel?
We can’t promise that your adventures together will pass into legend, but we can promise you a very special memory to share.
Plus as this offer is available until March, it would also make a lovely Christmas surprise.
Escape to a legendary location
With today’s Big Deal on a Highland getaway for two, you have a choice of two sister hotels at Loch Leven – the Isles of Glencoe Hotel & Leisure Centre or the Ballachulish Hotel.
You can choose to stay for one or two nights, with a two course meal for two included on each night, as well as breakfast.
Whichever hotel you choose, you will have full use of the leisure facilities at the Isles of Glencoe Hotel.
The offer is available until the end of March 2019, so you can either enjoy Glencoe in all its frosty winter glory or catch the beginnings of spring.
If you would like to bring children or pets along, then you can arrange this directly with either hotel.
A £10 per room, per night supplement applies to stays on Friday and Saturday nights, payable directly to the hotel.
Upgrade to a Feature Room
And if you really want to drink in those loch and mountain views, then you can upgrade to a Feature Room with either patio doors or picture windows for amazing vistas.
This means you can relax in your room with a drink in hand while gazing out at the rippling blue loch.
It is a £10 supplement per night for this upgrade.
Isles of Glencoe Hotel & Leisure Centre
The Isles of Glencoe Hotel is perched on a peninsula at Loch Leven with glorious Glencoe as its backdrop. As far as dazzling locations go, it is hard to beat.
You will have a choice of various dining spaces, including the comfy lounge with fireplace; the light and airy conservatory, or the restaurant with picture frame windows offering dramatic views of Glencoe.
Menus are packed full of Scottish ingredients to sample and savour. The emphasis on quality and the relaxed atmosphere mean that the hotel is a popular dining spot with both visitors and locals.
The Ballachulish Hotel is an impressive Baronial residence on the banks of both Loch Leven and Loch Linnhe.
The hotel has been welcoming visitors with traditional Highland hospitality for over a hundred years and offers roaring log fires, peaceful surroundings and a cosy atmosphere.
The Bùlas Bar & Bistro serves hearty dishes from sea and land that you can enjoy while gazing out onto the loch. Menus feature fresh market produce cooked simply for fantastic flavours.
After dining you can relax by the fireside in either the comfy lochview lounge or library.
Enjoy full leisure club access
Whichever hotel you choose, you can enjoy full access to the leisure facilities at the Isles of Glencoe Hotel, including the swimming pool, sauna and Jacuzzi.
If you are staying at the Ballachulish, then the Isles of Glencoe is only a five-minute drive away.
Seriously, is there anything better than basking around a heated pool together on a winter break?
Start the day with a hearty breakfast
You will also get off to a good start each morning with a hearty breakfast selection at either hotel.
This will include a traditional full Scottish feast, fresh fruit salad; selection of cheeses and cold meats; muffins and croissants.
In other words, the perfect start to a day of exploring the loch and Glencoe.
Both hotels have been collecting positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Here is what a recent guest had to say about the Isles of Glencoe:
‘A wonderful stay in a perfect location. The hotel was comfortable with excellent staff and facilities. The location is superb, both from the point of view of the outlook of the hotel itself but also for exploring the highlands around it. I would strongly recommend a stay here to anybody. Thanks to all at the hotel for a wonderful break.’
And here is a recent review on the Ballachulish Hotel:
‘This beautiful hotel takes you back in time. The creaking of the steps as you walk up to your room just adds to the charm of staying here. The room was fully equipped and had a super view of the loch and countryside. The staff were welcoming and friendly, the food very nice and authentic. The lounge with the two burning fireplaces made the stay very personal and pleasant.’
Give the gift of a Glencoe getaway
Fascinating history, stunning scenery and waterside walks galore – Loch Leven and Glencoe has the lot.
So why not embrace some Highland magic on a one or two night stay at either the Isles of Glencoe or Ballachulish Hotel? Whichever you choose, you can expect true Highland hospitality, quality Scottish dining and unforgettable views.
