Housed in a Victorian mansion, The Ben Wyvis Hotel invites travellers to indulge in a relaxing stay in the spa town of Strathpeffer near Inverness. The property lies within easy reach of the wonders of the Scottish Highlands, castles, gardens and whisky distilleries, while active types can try out local golfing, fishing and trekking opportunities.
Reflecting the character of the mansion, the rooms feature classic decor and warm colour schemes. The rooms also come complete with TVs and en suite bathrooms with toiletries and hairdryers.
Changing with the seasons, traditional Scottish fair overflows the tables at the elegant Jacobite Restaurant. The menu features specialities like Scotch broth, venison, chicken Balmoral and tipsy laird. Lit in colder months, open Victorian fireplace keeps diners warm and cosy.
Groupon’s Guide To The Scottish Highlands
Guests may go rambling around lakes and hillsides or trek the known routes in the Beinn Eighe nature reserve, near Kinlochewe. Walking aside, many fishing areas and golf courses are dotted around the area for more conventional activities.
Visitors may explore the great outdoors, taking to Loch Linnhe with a boat ride out to Seil Island for a nature-spotting trip. They may keep eyes peeled for herons and seals, with the odd porpoise known to sometimes make an appearance. Travellers may head north towards Fort William and find throat-warming ventures in the Ben Nevis Distillery at Lochybridge. Further afield, potentially snowy peaks can be sought on Glencoe Mountain, and visitors may even enjoy a whizz on the ski slopes.
