STV and the National Trust for Scotland in partnership are bringing you the opportunity to win a two-night self-catering break for up to four guests at the stunning East Lodge, in the grounds of Crathes Castle near Banchory in Aberdeenshire. Standing against a backdrop of rolling hills and set within its own glorious gardens, Crathes Castle is every inch the classic Scottish tower house – and offers a fantastic experience for all the family.

Your stay will encompass free entry to the Castle & Garden over the 2-day period, alongside a VIP tour followed by afternoon tea for four. Upon check in, a welcome hamper of delicious goodies will also be waiting. Inside the Castle you’ll find a labyrinth of cultural history, from family portraits to fine antique furniture. The walled garden is a wonderful jungle of history, split into eight sections that encompass every green delight imaginable. Look out for wildlife along the way – you may see red squirrels, woodpeckers and herons.

A message from The National Trust for Scotland: 'The National Trust for Scotland is the conservation charity that protects so much of what makes Scotland special. From coastlines to castles, art to architecture, wildlife to wilderness, the charity brings Scotland’s stories to life through unforgettable experiences.
