Back in December we saw a Groupon voucher for the Dunalastair Hotel up in Kinloch Rannoch. We’d always been a little dubious about the deals as they almost always seem to good to be tru but as I’d previously stayed at the Dunalastair we thought we’d give it a shot.
The voucher was for around £80 for two nights bed and breakfast with a bottle of wine and chocolates on arrival which seemed a bargain so we snapped it up.
We left booking for a few months so by the time we did there were only weekday nights but they did their best to accommodate us and we ended up getting a Thurs and Fri night.
The hotel is lovely and the drive up to it is a pleasure. We had a slight detour this time and the road took us in over the back of the hotel and gave us a fantastic view over Kinloch Rannoch.
Our plan for the weekend was to do nothing, absolutely nothing and that’s exactly what we ended up doing. The first ngiht we went down to the bar and chatted for hours infront of their open fire before heading for dinner. The next day we drove round the loch and had a walk then it was back to ‘our place’ infront of the fire with a glass of wine.
As fasr as a relaxing break goes the Dunalastair Hotel is fantastic, the only stress is getting over the feeling of guilt as sitting doing nothing for two days but somehow…just somehow, we managed.
