When you want to get away from it all, nothing beats an island.
And when it comes to islands, Skye is one of the best.
Dramatic, moody and mysterious, it is the perfect location for a romantic getaway.
Reach for the Skye with this Big Deal on a relaxing stay at Skeabost Country House Hotel, near Portree on Skye.
Originally built as a hunting lodge in the 19th century, Skeabost is located in beautiful private grounds on the edge of Loch Snizort.
Available seven days a week, option one of this offer is for two people to enjoy a two consecutive night stay in a cosy double or twin room at Skeabost.
Option two, also available seven nights a week, is for two people to have a three consecutive night stay.
Both options include a welcome dram on arrival and a full Scottish or continental breakfast each morning.
Depending on availability, guests may be able to upgrade to a Superior Room for a supplement.
Round of golf?
The offer includes unlimited golf on the hotel’s own golf course. The nine hole, eighteen tee course weaves its way through the picturesque, landscaped, loch side gardens.
When you come to leave, there is no need to rush – a late check out to noon is part of the offer.
While Skeabost Hotel has handsome 19th century good looks, it also has modern comforts and features such as WiFi, ensuite rooms, hospitality trays and flat screen TVs.
Great food, created with the finest, locally sourced seasonal ingredients is available in the handsome, wood panelled dining room. The kitchen team’s skills have been recognised with an AA Rosette.
Guests can end their evening with a drink in the billiards room, formerly the chapel of the original country house, or just relax with a malt whisky in the Cocktail Bar.

Travellers have relaxed at Skeabost Country House Hotel since the 19th century. This is what a more recent guest told TripAdvisor. We’ve cut for length but not meaning:
‘Reliably lovely. Another super stay… at Skeabost. Happy to return here. Lovely authentic hunting lodge with a beautiful wooden hall and stairs… atmospheric surroundings a little away from it all. We had room 11 with a lovely view to the loch and a marvellous bathroom with the room.
‘All the facilities you could expect… very nice bathroom with a super large bath and enormous comfy bed.
‘The staff are tremendous – friendly, efficient, helpful – and really DO want you to have a memorable time…
‘We found the bar meals very good value and well presented, but the dining room menu is also good.
‘A great place to stay – only six miles from Portree. Walks around the grounds, mountains nearby, golf and fishing if you want them. A great base for your trip to Skye!’
This reviewer was obviously enchanted by Skye. Take up this Big Deal and experience the island’s magic for yourself.
This Big Deal is valid for stays until the end of March 2015 so you could even buy one now and use it as a surprise Christmas gift.
