Violence, adultery and feathering your own nest may sound like an episode from Game of Thrones.
In fact, it’s all part of the wildlife action at the Osprey Centre by Loch Garten.
Whether you are a twitcher, rambler, golfer or biker, the Highlands will be at their magnificent best over the next few months.
Make the most of it all with today’s Big Deal on a stay in the welcoming Boat Hotel near Aviemore.
A four star, family-run hotel, the Boat Hotel is ideally located for enjoying all that Scotland’s great outdoors have to offer.
Full Scottish breakfast
Available seven days a week, option one of this Big Deal is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a classic double or twin room at The Boat Hotel.
The offer includes a full Scottish breakfast each morning and a £25 per room spend towards dinner in the evening.
Option two, also available seven days a week, is for two people to enjoy a two consecutive night stay at The Boat Hotel with a full Scottish breakfast each morning and a £25 spend towards dinner on both nights of your stay.
Both options include little extras such as late check out to 1pm plus mini bottles of Prosecco and delicious, handmade chocolates in your room on arrival.
There is a £15 per room per night supplement for Friday and Saturday stays.
The Boat blends historic Highland charm with the comfort and mod cons you would expect of a 21st century hotel such as digital TVs, WiFi (chargeable) and room service, including breakfast in bed.
The breakfasts at The Boat Hotel are pretty special. As an alternative to the full Scottish breakfast, you can order anything from delicate smoked Scottish haddock to meltingly beautiful eggs Florentine. Breakfast also offers a range of cold dishes and freshly baked pastries from the larder.
Dinner in The Boat Bistro is always a treat. The kitchen takes great pride in using the best, seasonal Scottish produce.
The menus change regularly but typical starters might be the steamed mussels or chorizo and black pudding salad while popular main courses include the smoked ham hock pie and the house fish ‘n’ chips.
The Osprey Bar has a very tempting collection of malt whisky – perfect for relaxing with in front of the open fire.
The Boat Hotel has earned plenty of positive reviews from happy guests. This is what one had to say recently on TripAdvisor. We’ve cut it for length but not meaning:
‘Highly enjoyable stay in good value hotel. We recently stayed at The Boat Hotel in Boat of Garten. We were there on a voucher deal but did not feel like the owners/staff were snobby about that… The room was small but had everything we needed and was comfortable. The bistro/restaurant was very good and generous portions meant we had no room for dessert! The wine was good, only complaint is that the bar prices are a bit steep. Overall we had a fantastic time, the hotel was great value, in a great location and provided a great base for exploring both the Cairngorms and Speyside regions. Staff fantastic. Breakfast fab.’
The great outdoors is waiting for you. Make like an osprey, take wing and head for the Highlands with today’s Big Deal on a relaxing stay at The Boat Hotel.
