Win a Weekend for Two in One of Europe's Finest Hotels; RICH TRAVEL WEEKEND COMPETITION


Here's your chance to live like a millionaire - for two nights.

Be pampered at one of the most luxurious hotels in Europe, enjoy fine dining, fabulous walks and peace and quiet in the stunning environs of the Scottish Highlands.

But that is not all: even the journey is in style. Enjoy flights from Birmingham International Airport to Inverness and be chauffeur driven to the hotel.

Weekend, in conjunction with The Birmingham Post's Rich List, has put together a fine package, worth more than pounds 1,000, for one lucky couple to enjoy the life of a millionaire.

Inverlochy Castle, in Fort William, recently voted the Best Hotel in Europe by Travel and Leisure magazine, is offering two readers a luxury weekend break.

Stay Friday night and Saturday night with full Scottish breakfast each morning, have candlelight dinner for two each evening in its award-winning restaurant, and, a chilled bottle of Champagne in your room on arrival.

Nestling in the foothills of Ben Nevis, Inverlochy Castle sits amid some of Scotland's finest scenery and is steeped in history.

It was built in 1863 as a private residence, more than 100 years later in 1969 it was converted into a country house hotel.

The Great Hall on entry, with its frescoed ceiling, Venetian crystal chandeliers and handsome staircase reflects a relaxed, tranquil atmosphere of a bygoneera.

All 18 bedrooms have private bathroom and are individually designed, boasting splendid views of the grounds and surrounding mountains.

Dinner is served in one of three magnificent dining rooms, each decorated with period and elaborate furniture presented as gifts to Inverlochy from the King of Norway.

The menu features modern British cuisine and the hotel chef uses the finest local ingredients including scallops, wild mushrooms and local game.

While staying at Inverlochy activities available are in abundance, with fishing, clay pigeon shooting, water sports, pony trekking, stalking, tennis and guided walking to name but a few.

Inverlochy Castle is an experience not to be missed.

The lucky couple will fly from Birmingham International Airport to Inverness, courtesy of Eastern Airways.

Eastern Airways offers day return flights and weekend services between the Midlands and the Highland capital on its 29 seat Jetstream 41 aircraft.

The airline has launched new Saturday services resulting in passengers being able to travel to Inverness any day of the week from Birmingham.
