The BBC series Monarch of the Glen was filmed around Newtonmore. Sexy Lexie, Archie and Hector have all moved on but the real star of the show, the beautiful Scottish scenery, is as eye-catching as ever.
Take up today’s Big Deal and you can become your own monarch of the glen while enjoying a mini-break at the Highlander Hotel in Newtonmore.
2 night stay
This Big Deal is for two people to spend a relaxing two night stay in the Highlander Hotel, Newtonmore, with a full Scottish breakfast each morning.
A three course dinner for two on the first night is included in the deal and guests will also enjoy a bottle of house wine in their room on arrival.
Set in the Spey valley, the Highlander is well known for its traditional Scottish food and its warm welcome.
Centrally located near Aviemore, it is a great base for a wide range of outdoor activities from mountain biking to hill climbing.
There are also a lot of fun events taking place in the area. The Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival raises its glass in May and hard fought shinty matches are a regular occurrence. Alternatively, you could curl up with a book in the lounge and enjoy something from the hotel’s fine selection of malt whiskies.
The Highlander has plenty of fans on TripAdvisor. This is what a recent guest had to say of their experience at the hotel:
‘My wife and I booked another dinner, bed & breakfast weekend at the Highlander Hotel as we’d really enjoyed our previous stay. Very nice to be remembered at check-in and we were again pleased with our room. Enjoyed the food, enjoyed the service and overall it’s great value for money in an ideal location for a range of activities.’
