Ardanaiseig's Murder Mystery Weekend Back by Popular Demand

In October 2010 the breathtaking Ardanaiseig hotel in the Scottish Highlands will host a unique murder mystery weekend in association with world-renowned theatre company, Blitz Entertainment. During a glamorous two night stay, guests will be invited to attend an indulgent evening of intrigue, hilarity, gourmet dining and murder most foul.

With its remote setting at the foot of Ben Cruachan, on the dark shores if Loch Awe, what better murder mystery venue is there, than this isolated baronial-style hotel?

After a champagne reception, and with everybody seated for dinner, unidentified cast-members will involve the diners in a gruesome tale of death and horror. The hunt for the perpetrator will continue after the meal, enticing guests around the darkened hotel, until the mystery is solved.
