The Herald Magazine - - Enjoy the true island idyll with a luxury Arran br -

IT may be get­ting cold out­side, but au­tumn

and win­ter is still a great

time for a break, and you won’t find a warmer wel­come than at the Dou­glas Ho­tel on Ar­ran.

Lo­cally-owned and fam­ily run, the ho­tel strives to pro­vide the per­fect bal­ance of laid back re­lax­ation along­side a pro­fes­sional and at­ten­tive ser­vice, fully liv­ing up to their mis­sion state­ment of pro­vid­ing a touch of lux­ury on the Isle of Ar­ran.

The ho­tel it­self and more specif­i­cally, the bar and restau­rant, pro­vides the fo­cal point for the vil­lage and the per­fect spot for weary trav­el­ers to recharge their bat­ter­ies.

The sit­u­a­tion of the ho­tel means that you can leave the car at home, with the beau­ti­fully ren­o­vated build­ing just a stone’s throw from the ferry ter­mi­nal.

It is no sur­prise that the Dou­glas re­ceived the ‘Best New Ho­tel’ award in 2012 and the Gold Lau­rel for ‘out­stand­ing achieve­ment

– restora­tion of a ho­tel’ fol­low­ing the ex­ten­sive work car­ried out to con­vert the ho­tel to its cur­rent glory.

The food is al­most worth the jour­ney alone, with the bistro and restau­rant also be­ing the holder of a Gold Lau­rel for Food, while the bar of­fers more than just an ex­ten­sive whisky, wine, spir­its and drinks list, but also one of the finest views on the is­land.

If this sounds like a per­fect win­ter warmer, then now is the per­fect time to sam­ple the de­lights of the Dou­glas Ho­tel with a spe­cial of­fer avail­able for a two-night stay.

For just £99.50pp for mid­week nights or £139.50pp on the week­end, you can en­joy din­ner bed and a full Scot­tish break­fast on each day of your stay.
