Why not spoil yourself or treat you better half to the ultimate valentine’s weekend?
Enjoy contemporary Scottish dining in the recently restored, stunning ancestral estate house Knockdow in beautiful Loch Striven in Argyll. It’s only an hour and half away from Glasgow, but feels like another world!
The couple behind, award-winning, acclaimed Inver Restaurant have teamed up with 5 star Knockdow House to offer a fully catered, luxury weekend of fine food and great drink in historic splendour, outstanding natural beauty and contemporary comfort. This exclusive event take place during the weekend of Feb 12th to 14th
After exhilarating walks on the stunning estate, overlooking Loch Striven and sheltered by 2000ft peaks of Cruach nan Capull and Leacann nan Gall, come indoors and warm up with a cocktail or a dram by the roaring fires in the Great Hall and the Drawing room. Lose yourself in a quiet corner or enjoy a game on the full size billiards table. Soak up the ambience and history of this most intriguing mansion house – or simply soak in the bath of your sumptuously appointed 5 star accommodation.
Knockdow offer a three course dinner awaiting your arrival on the Friday evening, a holiday breakfast on the Saturday, a light lunch, and an unforgettable six-course dinner on the Saturday night, with a special menu of great drinks and fine wine to compliment (available to purchase at the time or in advance). Your weekend will conclude with an elegant Valentine’s brunch on the Sunday morning.
This will be a fine dining experience you will never forget, set in a sublime country house with your own luxury apartments. Over the weekend you’ll enjoy local shellfish and native meat, game from the estate, farmhouse cheeses and the very best seasonal flavours.
