THE Sunday Post has teamed up with Maryculter House Hotel by Aberdeen, to offers readers the perfect chance to unwind after the Christmas festivities with a relaxing two-night break for two with dinner and breakfast.
Magnificently situated on the banks of the River Dee, in stunning countryside, the Maryculter House Hotel gives most Scottish hotels a run for their money in the history stakes.
In the late 12th century, the College of the Knights Templar was founded on the site of the hotel. The oldest part of the building, which now forms the residents’ lounge, dates back to 1460 and is a perfect spot for afternoon tea or a warming autumn dram.
During such a long and illustrious history, the building has had many owners including one of the few male passengers to survive the Titanic disaster.
Many of the rooms have beautiful river views and unsurprisingly, the hotel is a very popular wedding venue with stunning backdrops for photography both inside and outside the hotel.
No short break is complete without a touch of retail therapy and although the hotel is situated in the splendour of the Royal Deeside landscape, it’s just a 10-minute drive from the centre of Aberdeen.
To be in with a chance to win this amazing break just answer the following question:
Which type of bird is traditionally eaten at Christmas?
a) Pigeon b) Seagull c) Turkey
