We are so pleased to have partnered with luxury Scottish Highland house, Dun Aluinn, to offer one lucky winner and their guest the chance to win one of Dun Aluinn’s new luxury ‘Experience Weekends’, brand new for summer 2021. The winner will also receive a £150 Sophie Allport voucher!
Already famed as one of the UK’s best exclusive-use houses, Dun Aluinn will welcome guests to its first ‘Experience Weekends’ this summer, with its new ‘Design, Health & Wellness Weekends’ taking place over two dates, 11th to 14th June and 3rd to 6th September 2021. Delivering an immersive Highlands experience, allowing guests to switch off and disconnect from daily pressures, each weekend will offer a bespoke programme of activities for each guest, hosted in partnership with local artisans, producers and chefs.
With guests selecting activities to suit them best, days could start with instructor-led yoga or a run or walk from the house, followed by a morning that could include wildflower arranging with Wild Gorse Studio, electric mountain biking offering thrilling downhill runs, or a cooking masterclass with Michelin Guide Ballintaggart Farm. In the afternoon, guests could opt to enjoy a 4x4 Highland Safari or perhaps a visit to the workshop of award-winning furniture maker Angus Ross.
Also perfect for foodies and those with a passion for nature and sustainability, (Dun Aluinn has recently been awarded a Gold Green Tourism Award), the weekend is co-hosted in partnership with Michelin Guide Ballintaggart Farm, known for their inventive use of local and seasonal ingredients. Each day will conclude with a delicious dinner, including a five-course ‘Taste of the Highlands’ dinner on one evening, chocolate tasting with the Highland Chocolatier, and a Loch Tay Crannog evening of music, storytelling and whisky tasting.
Easily reached, just a 90 min drive from both Edinburgh or Glasgow, and a 25-minute drive from Dunkeld train station, Dun Aluinn offers the best of both worlds, set within a spacious 5.5 acre estate and offering a choice of beautiful walks from the door, but is also just a 600m stroll from the lively town of Aberfeldy, offering charming bookshops, coffee shops, restaurants and interior stores to explore, as well as Birks Cinema, the town’s Art Deco community cinema. For golf lovers, the courses at Gleneagles (50mins) and St Andrews (90mins) are also within easy reach.
With 13 luxury ensuite bedrooms, each Experience Weekend will host a maximum of 26 guests, offering a wonderful, sociable weekend break. Each weekend includes a 3 night stay and is worth £2,500 per room, two sharing, or £1,500 single occupancy, including all catering, events and activities, with only wine, bar drinks and any optional extras in addition.
The winner will also receive a £150 Sophie Allport gift voucher, perhaps you'll opt for a weekend bag, personalised wash bag, and sleep mask to take with you on your weekend break? Or maybe you'll choose from our beautiful selection of kitchen linens to refresh your kitchen for Spring.
