In the dim and distant past, Loch Rannoch was sometimes used as a hidey hole for outlaws on the run.
Fugitives from the law are less prevalent in Perthshire these days but Loch Rannoch is still a gorgeous spot where people go to escape the hurly-burly of modern life.
Take up today’s Big Deal on a one or two night break at the Macdonald Loch Rannoch Hotel and relax in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland.
Nestled in the heart of the Highlands, the hotel is situated on the north shore above Loch Rannoch and offers majestic views of the water and the statuesque, surrounding hills.
Although only two and a half hours from Glasgow or Edinburgh, the hotel feels gloriously distant from the frantic rush of the city centre and is ideally placed for hill walking, distillery visits and touring the region’s castles.
Option one of this offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a classic twin or double ensuite room.
The offer includes a full Scottish breakfast, a glass of chilled Prosecco on arrival and a cream tea for two.
Option two is for two people to have a two consecutive night stay with a full Scottish breakfast each morning, with a glass of Prosecco and a cream tea on arrival.
There is a £30 supplement for Friday and Saturday nights.
The offer includes late check-out of 1pm.
Depending on availability there may be the option to upgrade to a loch view room.
