Sir Walter Scott once called Loch Ard ‘an enchanting sheet of water’.

To this day, the loch still has its own special magic. And with its castle ruins and sculpture trails, there’s plenty of adventures to be had as well.

Experience it all for yourself with today’s Big Deal from Macdonald Forest Hills Resort.
