Romantic Getaways: Scotland


If you’re looking for a short getaway as a couple, Scotland can be the perfect destination. With rich history, world-class cuisine and scenery that’ll take your breath away, there’s no better place to treat yourself and your partner.

If you’re the kind of couple that adores history, Scotland will not disappoint. The country is renowned for its cobbled streets, untouched architecture and preserved castles and monuments. Inveraray Castle is great for architecture and romantic locations, while Dirleton Castle is ideal for those especially interested in medieval architecture.

Nature lovers cannot miss the opportunity to see the Northern Lights. Scotland is the only place within the UK with a decent chance of experiencing the amazing natural phenomenon, and makes for a fantastic romantic evening.


Wrap up warm and cuddle up as the sky seems to dazzle and twirl around you both. It truly is an out-of-this-world experience that cannot be missed.

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, and a must for couples who love an urban experience. The restaurants on offer are famous world-over, while the night time entertainment offers something for everyone.

If you both enjoy a warming whisky to end your day, the establishments in Edinburgh have the best of the best on offer, while those who love to dance the night the way will do no better than to visit the nightly music events that take place all year round.

Location is just as important as the events, and Scotland is home to a huge range of traditional and contemporary hotels, apartments and cottages. For those looking for the best in luxury and pamper, one of the many 5-star hotels on offer are a must. Likewise, those looking for privacy and intimacy should take a break in the snug and beautiful cottages across the country.

Travelling as a couple is a fantastic way to see the world, and it can even save you money.
