Robert Burns wrote that ‘My heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not here/My heart’s in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer’.
A couple of centuries on and the Highlands are as attractive as ever; even if the whole a-chasing the deer thing tends to be discouraged these days.
Write your own Highland poetry with today’s Big Deal on an overnight stay at the Ballachulish Hotel in beautiful Glencoe.
With a stunning location on the shores of both Loch Linnhe and Loch Leven, the Ballachulish Hotel is the ideal spot for a romantic break; a walking holiday or just a chance to relax, take a few deep breaths and chill.
Available seven days a week, today’s Big Deal is for two people to indulge in a relaxing overnight bed and breakfast stay at the atmospheric Ballachulish Hotel in Argyll.
The offer includes a £20 food voucher to be used in the hotel’s popular Bulas Bar and Bistro with guests receiving a pre-dinner drink.
The deal also includes a late check out until 1pm so there will be no need to hurry your full Scottish breakfast in the morning.
There is a £20 supplement, payable direct to the hotel, for Saturday night stays.
The hotel is equipped with mod cons such as WiFi while the comfortable bedrooms reflect the building’s Highland heritage in their traditional decor.
Use of leisure centre
Great views and the baronial architecture of the Ballachulish make it a welcoming spot to linger over a book and a dram. The more energetic might choose to use the pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and exercise room in the nearby Leisure Centre at sister hotel The Isles of Glencoe.
As well as enjoyable views, the Bulas Bar and Bistro at the Ballachulish Hotel have a stylish contemporary atmosphere and the kitchen prepares daily changing menus which make the most of seasonal, local produce.
Popular main courses include the haddock in beer batter and chips; the New Yorker burger and the spinach and ricotta cannelloni.
The Ballachulish Hotel has always been a popular choice for previous Big Deals. This recent review on TripAdvisor helps explain why:
‘Great few days. We had a wonderful couple of days at this very hospitable hotel and are already planning our next trip. Our room had a wonderful view over Loch Linnhe and had all the amenities we were looking for or expected. The staff were very friendly and attentive and all our needs were met – a special mention to Richard who went the extra mile when we had a minor problem with our room. The food was most enjoyable at both dinner and breakfast and we both felt we had excellent value for money. We will most definitely recommend this hotel to our friends and family.’
