WIN a gourmet break for two in Scotland

One lucky reader and their guest will win a two-night country retreat in Aberdeenshire.

Glass of wine in hand, relax at Banchory Lodge, a new kind of country retreat in Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire.

This back-to-nature four-star boutique hotel is perched on the banks of the river Dee and has one of the best restaurant views in the UK.

Located at the gateway to Royal Deeside, there is plenty to see and do in the area. There is fishing right on the doorstep, as well as historic castles, golf courses and stunning countryside walks.

Enjoy a light lunch out on the terrace or a spot of afternoon tea before setting off on a road trip.

Experience one of Scotland’s most spectacular driving routes, the North East 250. Head through the mountain passes of the Cairngorms National Park and up towards the prestigious distilleries of Speyside.

Refuel after a day exploring in Banchory Lodge’s award-winning restaurant. Menus that change with the seasons are made using the finest of local produce. Come to the bar after dinner and find an array of whiskies, craft gins and local beers.

And at the end of the day, settle down for a good night’s sleep in a top-notch contemporary bedroom.

The prize includes two nights’ bed & breakfast for two with dinner on one evening including a bottle of house wine.
