With the Lake of Menteith as her backdrop, Mother Nature lays on a spectacular wildlife show twelve months of the year.
From herons patrolling the shores to ospreys diving for dinner via otters splashing in the shallows, there is always something to see at Scotland’s only lake.
Enjoy the view with today’s Big Deal on an overnight break at the gorgeous Lake of Menteith Hotel.
If you want to whisk away a loved one for a romantic adventure then this Big Deal at this lovely Port of Menteith hotel will fit the bill very snugly.
Part of the Trossachs National Park but just an hour from Glasgow or Edinburgh, the Lake of Menteith Hotel was originally a 19th century manse.
As the name suggests, the hotel sits by the side of the Lake of Menteith.
Since being bought and revamped in the warm and welcoming style of a classic New England waterfront hotel, it has won numerous awards including Romantic Hotel of The Year and Small Country Hotel of the Year.
Valid seven days a week, this great offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight break in a classic double or twin at the Lake of Menteith Hotel. The offer is valid from 18th December until the end of March, making it an ideal Christmas gift, or a late winter getaway.
A full Scottish breakfast each morning is included in the offer as are tea and coffee, with scones – served from 3.30pm to 5pm.
All the rooms have been refurbished in recent years and come with Tunnock’s treats, mineral water plus Keurig coffee and tea in-room.
Free access WiFi is available throughout the ground floor of the hotel.
There is a £20 per room per night supplement for Friday and Saturday night stays.
Finest Scottish produce
A full Scottish breakfast is included in the Big Deal. If you also opt to take lunch or dine in the hotel then you are in for a treat.
The Port Bar offers casual dining and a divine malt selection along with an open fire and large windows looking out onto the Lake.
In the Waterfront Restaurant, you’ll find the finest Scottish produce simply prepared to compliment the breathtaking views out the windows.
Popular dishes include main courses such as the roasted breast of Gressingham duck with beets, wild mushrooms, potato dauphinoise and red wine jus.
There are always daily specials like the pan-seared Lake of Menteith trout with mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables and beurre noisette.

‘Lovely quaint hotel. Staff really friendly. Beautiful views over the lake in the restaurant… ate in the restaurant every evening, meals were excellent. The room was good, would have been nice to overlook the lake but it was a comfortable room. Coffee tea hot choc machine, biscuits available. Fresh towels toiletries. Bed comfy. Really nice touch every day afternoon tea/coffee with scones foc. It was a nice quiet break for us to recharge, would recommend it.’
‘A wonderful getaway. We booked this lovely family run hotel because it had been recommended and because the location sounded like an ideal place for well needed relaxation and chill out. The lack of Wi-Fi access was very appealing… We enjoyed a lovely relaxing weekend with friendly service, good food and beautiful surroundings.’
A romantic getaway at the Lake of Menteith Hotel would brighten up anyone’s dull 2019 start.
Bag today’s Big Deal from the Lake of Menteith Hotel. It’s always show time for the local wildlife and all they need is an appreciative audience.
