If superstars like Robert Burns and Sir Walter Scott have sung your praises, then you must be pretty darn special. It turns out that both national heroes were inspired by the beauty of Strathspey and seriously, who can blame them?
With the Cairngorms as its backdrop, Strathspey is an ideal spot for walking, whisky tasting, golfing or just drifting around in gorgeous scenery.
Today’s Big Deal gives you the chance to experience it all during a stay in a historic hotel…
Charming hotel near Aviemore
The Craiglynne is a dramatic 19th century residence in Grantown-on-Spey. When you arrive, you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped into a Victorian novel, with you as the hero or heroine.

Available seven days until 15th May, option one of this Big Deal is for two people to stay in a classic double or twin room.
It includes a full Scottish breakfast breakfast, bottle of wine on arrival, three course table d’hôte meal for two and a relaxing late check-out.

You and your partner can enjoy a satisfying three course meal, then afterwards, retire to the bar area to sip drams in front of the log fire. Bliss.
