2-night stay at Aberdeen's only 5-star hotel
VisitScotland has teamed up with Thistle & Broom to offer you the chance to capture your memorable Autumn Moments in Scotland with a lavish 2-night break for 2 at The Marcliffe Hotel and Spa. This elegant 5-star hotel is situated in its own picturesque grounds on the outskirts of the historic city of Aberdeen, and offers beautiful views of the surrounding countryside in its full autumnal glory! You will also delight in an evening of fine-dining at The Marcliffe, where you will savour exquisite and locally-sourced dishes.
Aberdeenshire’s landscapes offer an eclectic mix of rugged coastline, mysterious forests, tumbling rivers and evocative glens. Part of Aberdeenshire even falls within the boundaries of the Cairngorms National Park. With car hire courtesy of holiday autos included within the prize, you and your companion are invited to experience the many breathtaking hidden gems that Aberdeen City and Shire has to offer.
As part of your visit you will have the unique experience of being involved in designing your very own bespoke Fair Isle knitted jumper. With 400 years of tradition and opulent wool from Shetland woven into the luxurious garment, which takes 100 hours of knitting to perfect, you will meet Thistle & Broom’s wonderfully skilled knitter Eileen Sutherland who will create your fabulous jumper - an authentic touch of Scotland which will be sent direct to your home on completion.
What's more, with £400 towards travel and spending also included, you are free to further discover the wonderful things to see and do on an autumnal getaway to Aberdeenshire! Why not explore the region’s fascinating Castle Trail and immerse yourself in the romance and history of thirteen striking castles, each with their own unique story to tell; or experience the rich heritage and flavours of the Malt Whisky Trail and journey around Moray’s most celebrated distilleries to taste an eclectic selection of Scottish malts? You will simply be spoilt for choice!
