James Bond fans are being given the opportunity to live out their 007 fantasies at a hotel off Scotland's west coast. http://www.telegraph...n-Scotland.html

The five-star Isle of Eriska Hotel, which lies just off Scotland’s west coast, has launched a James Bond Escape package to celebrate 50 years of the movie franchise.

On arrival at Edinburgh airport, budding Bonds will be given the keys to an Aston Martin DB9, along with a recommended route map, taking in Rannoch Moor and Glencoe - a location in the recent Skyfall movie.

Once ensconced at the hotel, a private speed boat will be on hand for private trips to the nearby Isle of Mull – guaranteed to leave guests shaken, not stirred.

In the evening, guests will be treated to a Martini Cocktail Masterclass, where the history of 007’s favourite tipple will be explained ahead of a black-tie dinner.

The following day, guests can visit the locations of From Russia with Love and The Spy Who Loved Me before heading back to Edinburgh.

There will also be treatments on offer at the hotel’s ESPA spa or a round of golf on the Isle of Eriska’s 9-hole course.

The James Bond Package starts from £1,500 per person.

I have almost no reason not to do this.
