Scotland’s castles combine romantic scenery with legend and architectural grandeur – it’s like they’ve come straight from a fairytale! Some of Scotland’s most enchanting castles include Dunrobin Castle, Dunvegan Castle, Culzean Castle and Eilean Donan Castle, the list could go on. Some are even open for overnight stays – where else is more romantic than overnight in a medieval castle?
Stay in luxury hotels
We should all get to enjoy a little bit of luxury now and then, especially with our other half. Scotland certainly has its fair share of 5-star, luxurious hotels with glamorous interior, spa facilities, stylish bars and incredible restaurants serving traditional Scottish food and drink. The Balmoral in Edinburgh is one the most popular, if not the most, luxury hotels in Scotland. This grand Victorian hotel is located in the city center just minutes away from luxury shopping, theatre and fine dining.
Romantic getaways to Scotland’s islands have long been favoured by couples looking to spend some quality time together. The islands offer a perfect opportunity to really get away from the hustle and bustle and properly relax. Each of Scotland’s islands are found in four main groups: Shetland, Orkney, the Inner Hebrides and the Outer Hebrides. Each island boasts a unique character, but they are all equally as breathtaking. It’s their remoteness, charming towns and far-reaching views that make them perfect for romantic occasions. You can read about Scotland’s main islands here.
Road trip to the Highlands
There are endless things to see and do in the north, so there is no better way to embrace as much as you can than by embarking on a road trip. The North Coast 500 is the most famous Highland road trip and is considered as one of the most romantic road trips in the world. Starting in the city of Inverness, the route weaves along the west coast to Applecross and the northwards towards Ullapool. The route is best enjoyed over the course of 7 days or even longer. It’s certainly one way to experience the rugged and wild side of Scotland.
Escape to the coast
For others, there’s nowhere more romantic than by the sea. If it’s a coastal or beach getaway you’re looking for, you’ll find an excellent selection of accommodation by the beaches and shorelines, luxury golf resorts included! It doesn’t really matter which season you choose to escape to the coast, each season offers a unique experience. Whilst coastal breaks are particularly great during the warmer months, demand for autumn/winter coastal breaks is increasing.
