Fifteen million people visited Scotland as tourists last year. They can’t all be wrong.
It’s not at all hard to see why so many people visit us. Spectacular local produce, stunning scenery and a fascinating history are all big attractions.
And we have it on our doorsteps.
Enjoy all that this beautiful country has to offer with today’s Big Deal on a relaxing stay at the beautifully refurbished Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa.
Easy to reach location
Nestled within the breath-taking scenery of The Trossachs, Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa is in Aberfoyle – just 20 minutes from Stirling, 40 minutes from Glasgow and less than an hour from Edinburgh. Free onsite parking makes it even more convenient.
Offering the perfect retreat from city life, the four star hotel recently had a £1 million refurbishment and it looks stunning.

Available seven days a week, the Big Deal is for two people to spend two nights in a Classic double or twin room with a full Scottish breakfast and a three course dinner on the first night.
Also included is a glass of Prosecco plus a selection of delicious canapés served on the Terrace on arrival, a late check out to noon and full use of the leisure facilities.
The 55 individually styled bedrooms are comfortable, traditionally furnished and come with many period features as well as stunning views.
Proud holders of an AA Rosette, the hotel’s Garden Restaurant sources the finest Scottish beef, lamb, pork and wild white fish for their modern Scottish menus.
Rafters bar and bistro offer more casual dining and a calm space to sip and nibble on afternoon tea.
Pool with a view
The hotel’s Vital Health Club has state of the art Technogym facilities, a sauna and steam room.
What makes it extra special are the full-length windows which give guests an unrivalled view of the magnificent Trossachs as they swim the 18-metre, heated pool.
Guests are also welcome to book treatments (not included) in the hotel’s Elemis spa where the staff of trained experts are standing by to help you relax and unwind.

Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa has plenty of fans on TripAdvisor. These were taken from recent reviews:
‘What a view. One of my top hotel stays ever. Never stayed somewhere with such magnificent views. Staff were lovely. Dinner and breakfast was top class. It’s a bit out of the way which is perfect if you want some peace and quiet.’
‘Loved the property! It’s a very well maintained big property with manicured landscaping. Very close to Aberfoyle where you can find some nice shops… The hotel rooms are spacious with all amenities and good bathrooms. We had a very comfortable stay here. The staff here was very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this hotel.’
