Perfect for foodies, photographers and nature-lovers this two-night package includes foraging along Kinloch’s shore and through its forests and photo-stalking for red deer within some of the most majestic scenery in the UK, steeped in tradition and lore. Kinloch’s own Ghillie acts as your personal guide, sharing his knowledge and providing great ‘craic’.
Kinloch’s award-winning breakfasts will set you up for the adventures ahead, while an incredible five course dinner is the reward at the other-end of the day. On return to Kinloch it’s time to relax in front of open fires, in charming, family heirloom-adorned drawing rooms. Super king-size sumptuous beds and indulgent bathrooms offer the perfect end to a perfect day. Sunday includes a fabulous traditional roast, and a whisky tasting.
Available from November 1st to February 15th, excluding Christmas and New Year, the two-night break costs from £1,100 (based on two sharing a standard room), or from £700 for solo travellers (in a standard room).
After arrival, guests are met by our guide, Skye Ghillie, for an afternoon amble along the shore and through the native forest surrounding the hunting lodge, both of which provide bountiful foraging. The crop depends on the season but with every step there are mouth-watering morsels to be uncovered; edible mushrooms, shellfish and seaweeds along with fresh new shoots. You’ll be sustained by freshly picked nibbles and refreshing brews, like Bog Myrtle Tea, made on an open fire.
On returning to the hotel, it’s time to enjoy a seasonal foraged cocktail (or mocktail) before settling down to enjoy Marcello Tully’s classic cooking during a delicious five-course dinner.
After a delightful night’s rest, and setting off early with a packed Kinloch breakfast, it’s off to the stalking grounds for the break of a beautiful dawn. As the deer return to the shelter of the forest after roaming the hills overnight, guests will be walking, watching and waiting to capture that perfect picture.
Then it’s back to Kinloch for a relaxing afternoon, including a traditional Sunday Lunch, you’ll then be encouraged to relax, perhaps with the Sunday papers, in front of a roaring open fire in one of three charming drawing rooms each furnished with historic paintings and family antiques.
What else are Sunday’s made for? Well, tasting whisky in Kinloch’s cosy Talisker bar of course! Taste and learn about a selection of the 180 whiskies that make up Kinloch’s collection, guided by their general manager and whisky connoisseur, Jamie Williams. On Sunday evening there’s a light supper, followed by a contented night’s rest.
Before heading home, on Monday morning there’s time to enjoy our award-winning breakfast and look back on memories of Kinloch Moments that will last a lifetime.
