The changing colours of the leaves, crisp mornings and long walks followed by mugs of hot chocolate – an autumn break on the West Coast has plenty to recommend it.
Make the most of Scotland’s autumn wonderland with this Big Deal on a three night stay at the Scandinavian style Birchbrae Lodges.
Outdoor capital of Scotland
Comfortable, cosy and beautifully equipped, the four star, self catering lodges are located eight miles south of Fort William, a.k.a. the Outdoor Capital of Scotland.
The surrounding Lochaber area is made up of soaring mountains; sparkling burns; deep, mysterious lochs and a wild rugged coastline.
Whether you prefer mountain biking or Munro-bagging; distillery visits, island hopping or whale-watching, it is all on the doorstep at Birchbrae Lodges.
With vouchers valid until 24th March next year, you could also use this offer for a winter sports break.
Both Glencoe and the Nevis range are within comfortable striking distance.
Three night stay
This offer comes in two forms. Both are for a three night stay in a three bedroom lodge sleeping up to six adults.
Option one is for a midweek break on three consecutive nights between Monday and Thursday inclusive.
Option two is for a three night weekend break on three consecutive nights arriving on a Friday and departing on Monday.
The lodges are the perfect place to come home to after a full day’s activity. Ideal for family holidays or breaks with friends, they all have three bedrooms with two bathrooms – one with bath and shower and one with shower only.
All lodges have a large lounge with 2 × 3 seater sofas, footstools and a surround sound home cinema TV system. A DVD and CD library is provided as is WiFi.
There is a dining area in each lodge with seating for six and an oak topped table plus a fully fitted, well equipped, modern kitchen.
Each lodge has toasty electric heating throughout and each radiator can be independently controlled. All electricity, heating, broadband access, linen and towel sets are also included.
One lodge is fully equipped with ramp access and a walk-in shower for guests with mobility difficulties.
Some of Scotland’s finest scenery surrounds the Birchbrae Lodges but, for those rare rainy days, this offer includes unlimited free access to the swimming pool, sauna and spa at the Ben Nevis Leisure Club in Fort William.
At the time of writing, TripAdvisor has more than a hundred reviews from previous guests and all but five of them rate Birchbrae Lodges as either ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’. These are highlights from recent visitors:
‘Another fantastic stay at Birchbrae… We will be back again as these lodges are wonderful. Very spacious accommodation with everything supplied and ample room for six adults. What more could you ask for!! I would not hesitate to recommend to workmates, family and friends.’
‘Had a great time… the lodge itself was spotless. It had everything we needed utensil wise… and we loved the added extra of the DVD/games hut as well as the option to use the facilities at a nearby hotel. I was especially impressed with the customer service… We will definitely be back soon and will bring our dog next time as she would love all the walks…’
With vouchers valid until the 24th of March 2016, this Big Deal would make a great family Christmas present.
Or you could use it to take a pre-Christmas break with chums.
