Maid Marian fell in love with Robin Hood for his good morals and talent with a bow and arrow. While we can't turn you into the infamous outlaw, we can offer you a romantic overnight getaway with archery lessons on the West Coast of Scotland.

Grab your favourite merry man or woman and swap Sherwood Forest for the beautiful Ardtorna Bed and Breakfast in Barcaldine. Just £149 will have you on target to enjoy an overnight stay for two at the Five-Star Gold luxury B&B including a gourmet breakfast, romantic welcome package, cream tea, and archery lesson for two (up to a £300 value).

After you've ridden into town, (Friar) tuck into your romantic welcome pack including bubbly, flowers, and chocolates as you relax in one of the five-star double bedrooms overlooking the loch. Each room comes with underfloor heating and an en suite wet room or Jacuzzi bath and power shower including Molton Brown toiletries and fluffy bathrobes. Recline on your memory foam bed and enjoy the hospitality tray and fresh fruit, or make the most of the room's iPod docking station, DVD player, free Wi-Fi, and Freeview television.

You'll certainly have Much to do the next day—your morning will begin with a gourmet breakfast with a choice of eight main courses such as the Ardtorna Speciality; poached eggs on a bed of streaky bacon with grilled halloumi cheese and a sprinkling of capers and lemon. For something more traditional, choose sausages, bacon, egg, tomato, black pudding, haggis, and tattie scones, while cereals, fruit smoothies, fresh fruit, natural yoghurt, and toasted breads are all on offer in the buffet area.

Then it will be time to head straight as an arrow for your hour-long archery lesson for two with a former world champion archer. The lesson will include an introduction to the traditional Scottish longbow including instruction in the ancient weapon and target practice.

Once you've mastered the longbow, there's plenty to do in the surrounding area. Head to nearby Oban and visit the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary where you can meet rescued seals, otters, and turtles as well as enjoying the centre's aquarium; see traditional cooking methods at the Inverawe Smokery; visit some local castles; go on a Seafari Adventure; or take a trip to some of the area's beautiful islands.

Let your newly learned archery skills make you the new sheriff in town and hit the bullseye with today's Escape before it bows out.

  • ''The sweeping mountains of Lorn create the perfect backdrop to the picturesque and bustling town of Oban, unofficial capital of the West Highlands and, as the main port for ferries departing to the Inner Hebrides, the 'Gateway to the Isles'.''
