Walking

Scotland’s a fantastic destination to the avid ramblers among us, its lochs and mountains host a wide range of winding trails which can provide the perfect level of intimate isolation for the nature loving couple. Take in the breath taking scenery with your loved one from the back of Britain’s tallest mountain, Ben Nevis, truly a site to see.

Shopping

Edinburgh’s famous for its fantastic shopping and those of us who have a passion for the art of shopping will be able to lose themselves for hours at a time amidst the ancient walkways and grey-stone alleys of Scotland’s Capitol. Take a trip from the city, visit a few farm shops and try fresh Scottish food and perhaps even a nip of Whiskey from one of the famous Distilleries in Whisky country.

Nightlife

Edinburgh and Glasgow have a wonderful array of restaurants to suit every taste, from the mildly romantic to the intimate getaway. Follow this up with a drink at one of the many fantastic bars along the causeway and then take in a show at the theatre.

What could be more romantic than a stay in a beautiful old castle furnished with the quiet luxury of traditional Scottish charm?
