5 Romantic spots in Scotland
Happy Valentine’s Day! Love is in the air so we thought it only suitable we spread a bit more…
Here are our top 5 most romantic places to visit, all of which have been captured beautifully by the talented Karen Appleyard. We love working with Karen, her work inspires us every day to try and get out and see all the wonderful sights of Scotland. So if you are looking for an outing this weekend, why not try one of these places?
The Machrie Moor standing stones on the Isle of Arran simply take your breath away. With the remains of no less than six stone circles, this is the best known archaeological site on the island. This is a lovely long walk which can be enjoyed hand in hand whilst discovering these dramatic and atmospheric artifacts.
The Old Medieval Pack Horse Bridge (known as the Roman Bridge) sits next to the River Lyon, Glen Lyon, Scotland, with the burn ‘Allt Da Ghob’ flowing rapidly underneath. This is the perfect spot for a picnic and to relax in the fresh air surrounded by nature and wildlife.
Camas on Lochain
Beyond a wee place called Cove in the Scottish Borders, you will find this hidden and dramatic coastline. This is the perfect secluded spot to escape to get that peace and quiet we all crave to rekindle and reconnect.
Sunset on the West Coast
It may be a bit of a cliche but you can’t ignore a romantic sunset! North west Scotland boasts some of the most beautiful sunsets on the planet as the dramatic silhouettes come alive in the presence of the burning yellow sun. Imagine enjoying this with a glass of bubbly – bliss!
The Northern Lights – Ardmair Bay
Take a road trip up to the North West of Scotland and stay a couple of nights seeking out the Northern Lights. This has to be on everyone’s bucket list, so get up to the Highlands this year and let us know if you spot them.
Enjoy planning some long weekends and weeks away with those you love, getting away and exploring is so good for the mind and the soul. You know who to come to if you need self catering accommodation – we exhibit the best in Scotland so pop over to our website today.
