This weekend Mr G and I were supposed to be visiting his folks on the delightful Isle of Bute. Nothing fancy, just a wee evening meal with the in-laws, a few drinks and back on the ferry the next day.
As I'm fussing around the flat checking that we've turned off all the lights, fed the cats, got our bus passes etc, Mr G announces:
"Erm... I'm not quite sure how to tell you this next bit... we're not going to Rothesay... we don't need our bus passes... there's a chauffeur outside, waiting to take us somewhere special instead."
"I've booked you a wee early birthday treat to a mystery destination. Just get in the car and you'll find out where."
Queue the waterworks from me...
This was the most romantic and spontaneous thing Mr G has ever done - and he's set the bar high for his next surprise treat (wink, wink!) After 40 mins in our chauffeur driven car, we arrive at none other than Cameron House Hotel, on the banks of Loch Lomond - home of the Celeb!
In just over 24 hours we indulged in champagne, mojitos, hand-dived scallops, handmade chocolates, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, facials, massages and made the most of Room 69!
