You have to hand it to the Letterfinlay Lodge Hotel.
When it comes to being located next to the most Scottish scenery ever, the Spean Bridge hotel wins hands down.
Not only is it sited on the shores of Loch Lochy – Scotland’s most lochy loch – but it also enjoys views of the Great Glen.
Not any old glen. The Great Glen.
It also happens to be surrounded by some of the Highlands’ most spectacular scenery.
Reach for the diary and pencil in a break by the Lochy banks.
Today’s Big Deal offers a one or two night scenic stay at the Letterfinlay Lodge Hotel.
Christmas gift idea
Available with or without dinner, it is perfect for exploring the gorgeous, autumnal countryside of Lochaber – the UK’s outdoor capital.
The area offers numerous outdoor activities on your doorstep, from hiking to biking and, if the weather is right, winter sports.
Valid until the end of March 2018, this offer would be perfect for a pre-Christmas getaway or indeed a refreshing break after a hectic festive period.
It would also make a lovely Christmas present for the outdoors enthusiast.
Country house hotel
A 14-bedroom former shooting lodge, with plenty of rustic character, the Letterfinlay Lodge enjoys a superb setting overlooking the loch.
Its location in Spean Bridge between Fort William and Inverness is on the Road to the Isles, making it an ideal base for exploring the West Coast or Cairngorms. Or a perfect stopover en route to the Western Isles.
Seven days a week
The Big Deal option one is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a standard double or twin room, many of which have loch views.
Option two is for a two night bed and breakfast stay.
Options three and four are for a one or two night stay with a two course dinner on the first night of your stay.
Hot and cold buffet breakfast is included for all options.
This Big Deal is available seven days a week. There is a minimum stay of two nights at the weekend.
The hotel facilities include the spectacular Osprey Lounge and wine bar with its views over the loch.
This is where guests can enjoy a two course dinner – starter and main course – from the evening menu.
The menus change regularly but the following sample dishes will give you a flavour of what is on offer.
Popular starters include the chicken liver and gin pâté; the smoked salmon and crayfish cocktail plus the haggis and black pudding tower with a whisky cream sauce.
Main courses might be the seared medallions of pork served with apple fritters, spring onion mash cakes and creamy cider jus or the salmon and crayfish ravioli.
Supplements will apply to some dishes.
Letterfinlay Lodge Hotel has picked up plenty of positive feedback on TripAdvisor, including these recent examples:
‘A peaceful stay in a stunning location. Outstanding location with spectacular, unimpeded views from the dining room and deck across Loch Lochy to the steep hills beyond. Despite being just off the A82, it is a peaceful spot, and we had a quiet night in our warm, comfortable room. Good dinner and breakfast, in the aforementioned dining room. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful throughout.’
‘Stunning. Wonderful hotel. The staff were friendly and professional. The food was out of this world and the room was clean, comfortable and furnished to a high standard. All of this coupled with stunning views over Loch Lochy. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend.’
Get away from it all with today’s Big Deal break at the Letterfinlay Lodge Hotel, and relax in its tranquil and scenic setting beside the loch.
As we mentioned, this would be ideal for an autumnal getaway or a winter sports break.
It would also make a fantastic Christmas gift for anyone who loves the great Scottish outdoors.
