Scotland’s most romantic hotel is warming up Winter with cosy weekend packages – and we’re offering one lucky couple the chance to snuggle up together there for free.

Our competition winner will enjoy a two nights’ luxury stay at Ardanaiseig, situated on the banks of Loch Awe in Argyll amid some of the UK’s most spectacular scenery.

The 16-bedroom Grade II listed mansion was named by the editors of the 2017 edition of the UK Good Hotel Guide as Scotland’s top romantic and country house hotel. This year it was also shortlisted as Scotland’s Best Independent Hotel and voted Best Wedding Hotel in the Argyll and Lomond region.

Its Winter Warmer package is aimed at guests eager to share romance, families looking to relax together, and city and town dwellers wishing to swap hectic lifestyles for a few days of luxurious rural living.

The package includes accommodation in a Master Loch or Master Garden View Suite, breakfast, a hearty three-course dinner and afternoon tea in its sumptuous drawing room.

Ardanaiseig, a 20 minute drive from the main road between Glasgow and Oban (gateway to the Hebridean islands), showcases oil paintings and quirky antique furnishings.

The Winter Warmer package is priced at £295 per room per night, and is available between Thursdays and Mondays until 5 March 2018.

For more information or to make a reservation at Ardanaiseig call 01866 833333, email hello@ardanaiseig.com or see www.ardanaiseig.com.
