As the autumn nights draw in there are few more romantic settings than a lochside hotel with a backdrop of picturesque Highland scenery, far from the maddening crowds.
Today’s Big Deal offers the opportunity to escape to Macdonalds Loch Rannoch Hotel, set in glorious Perthshire surroundings.
A two-night break gives you the chance to relax in style, soak in the splendour of the scenery and enjoy the resort’s extensive facilities.
The Loch Rannoch Hotel and Resort enjoys an idyllic setting on the north shore of the loch, surrounded by hills, with views to Schiehallion. It’s the perfect base for exploring nearby castles, distilleries and walking trails.
Available seven days a week during September and October, or from Tuesday to Saturday in November and December, this offer is for two people to enjoy a two night stay in a classic twin or double ensuite room.
The offer includes a full Scottish breakfast, a welcoming glass of Prosecco on arrival and full use of the hotel’s leisure facilities, including a sauna.
There is a £30 per room per night supplement for Friday and Saturday night stays, payable directly to the hotel.
For guests wanting to make the most of the views, there is also the option to upgrade to a loch view executive room for an additional £20 per night.
The deal includes breakfast. Guests might also be tempted by the fine contemporary and classic Scottish cuisine served in the Ptarmigan restaurant, with its eye-catching views.
The emphasis is on local produce in a menu that typically includes dishes such as West Coast scallops, seared Shetland salmon and wild mushroom risotto.
The lochside terrace of the welcoming Malt Bar is the perfect location to enjoy a nightcap dram.
The deal includes access to the resort’s Craig Varr Leisure Complex with a heated pool, heated swimming pool, gym, steam room and sauna, perfect for soothing the calf muscles after an energetic day on the trails.
Bring the kids and treat them to a taste of the great outdoors. A maximum of two children is permitted, requiring an upgrade to a family room at a charge of £20 per night.
Children under 4 years old can stay free of charge when using existing beds, while cots can also be arranged. For children aged 4-14 years there is a supplement of £20 per child, per night in addition to the family room upgrade.
