Media Release: Ardanaiseig Hotel to host a ‘murder mystery weekend’ like no other

IN February 2010, the breathtaking Ardanaiseig hotel in the Scottish Highlands will host an 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.
