There’s something truly magical about the Scottish Highlands. With its remote location, wild weather, picturesque scenery and breath-taking wilderness, there’s nothing quite like romantic breaks in the Highlands. Especially when the wild wilderness is transformed into a beautiful winter wonderland. So to help you plan the perfect romantic retreat, we’ve put together our top tips for the ultimate Highland hideaway.
Whether you’re a seasoned coupled looking to rekindle the flame, or a newsome twosome on your first weekend away, the Highlands is close enough to the big Scottish cities to make travelling a breeze, yet remote enough for an intimate retreat for you and your loved one. And since it doesn’t get more romantic than an intimate break in a Highland Castle, we recommend holing up in one. While a large hotel chain may seem like a more affordable option for a weekend away, you’ll pay for it later. With paper-thin walls, questionable breakfast options and teams of pesky tourists bustling about, romance is sure to go out the window.
When it comes to planning romantic breaks in the Highlands, make sure you plan ahead. With so much to see and do in the Highlands, it’s the little things that will make all the difference. Spoil your better half with a couple’s pamper day in our spa. Take the road less travelled and enjoy a romantic stroll through our beautiful gardens. Or explore the ancient Culloden battlefields and forbidding mountains, thundering waterfalls and sparkling lochs of Glencoe.
We all know the fastest way to the heart is through the stomach. Which is why we recommend making the most of Highland hospitality and traditional Scottish cuisine. Eat your heart out during your romantic breaks in the Highlands. Indulge in delightfully decadent dinners and enjoy sinfully sweet desserts. Sink your teeth in to an intimate dinner for two in our beautiful castle restaurant, Table Manors. Or discover a taste for the finer things and allow us to arrange a romantic private dining experience for you and your loved one.
