Loving you MHOR each day…

After a few hectic months, Me and Mackay decided to give a little back to each other – part of being husband and wife and all that - so we took off on an impromptu night away to Monachyle Mhor.  I say impromptu, but to be honest,  I have dreamt about going here for years! I constantly go on their website and obsess, I’ve enjoyed a show round without staying once, and I’ve even driven up the long windy road to just show it to Jenny one time. 

Monachlye Mhor ExteriorI mean, I’m pretty obsessed.  SO, you will understand that this was years in the making and more a heavy persuasion than impulse! So for your viewing pleasure, and for the sole purpose of marking this momentous occasion and tenuously bracketing it under possible “vintage honeymoon” location for the benefit of this blog- here is an introduction to my weekend of Monachyle Mhor.

Fish n ChipsOur first stop was in Callander where we stopped to enjoy probably the best Fish and Chips in Scotland at Monachyle Mhor’s sister Fish Restaurant in Callander: MHOR Fish.

We then enjoyed a stunning drive along the Loch Lubnaig and Loch Voil to the hotel – where we checked in to this stunner of a room…


Country Style City Chic BedroomWe decided that in order to fully enjoy our 5 course meal cooked by Tom Lewis (award winning chef); a walk was in order, so off we went in the drizzle to build up an appetite. 

En route, I was excited to come across LOVESTUCK in the flesh – a vintage holiday rental through Canopy and Stars on MHOR’s farmland!  With Me and Mackay being lovers of homes on wheels; we couldn’t resist a peek and decided we needed to get closer.  And wow!  Honeymoon-tastic!  Vintage Vacation alarms ringing all around!  We loved it!Lovestruck Vintage Vacation

We then retired to a game of scrabble and some refreshments here in my dream living room before eating ourselves stupid for dinner followed swiftly by a viewing of Bridget Jones’s Diary in our room!

We will most definitely return (once we’ve saved a lot more pennies) and thoroughly recommend any of Mhor’s beautiful eateries and stays

MHOR Fish, MHOR Bread, Monachyle MHOR Hotel, Lovestruck at Monachyle MHOR, MHOR Tea.

Its worth noting that our stay was prompted by one of their Facebook last minute deals – so be sure “like” them to keep tuned!
