To celebrate the release of WHISKY GALORE!, in cinemas from May 5th across Scotland and from May 19th across the rest of the UK, we are giving away a fabulous weekend at Best Loved Hotel Meldrum House Country Hotel & Golf Course, only a few miles from the filming location of Portsoy, Aberdeenshire.
The inhabitants of a Scottish island try to plunder 50,000 cases of whisky from a nearby stranded ship. A remake of the beloved black and white Ealing Studios film, which was based on the novel by Sir Compton Mackenzie, which itself was based on the real events of 1941 when the S.S. Politician was shipwrecked in the Outer Hebrides leading to an hilarious battle as the wily islanders on nearby Eriskay tried to salvage the huge cargo of whisky on board, enraging the British authorities.
Our luxury weekend is 2 nights’ bed and breakfast with dinner on one night at the fabulous Meldrum House Country Hotel & Golf Course. Nestled within a 240-acre estate, this 4-star, award-winning hotel is steeped in history. The 13th century baronial country house guarantees unrivalled luxury for a weekend break.
Head to their 800-year old Cave Bar where you can choose from over 120 whiskies, cocktails, wines or a craft beer. In addition to the weekend stay, we are giving private tasting of the whisky in Meldrum House’s exclusive Whisky Club.
