Scotland’s Romantic Winter Hideaways


Winter is approaching and if you’re planning to hibernate, why not consider Scotland? Experience a dreamlike and romantic stay in a warm cabin with a hot tub, sauna, and all the whisky you can drink until spring.

When it comes to choosing your romantic destination, you’ll be surprised at how much Scotland offers. Get ready to spoil yourselves by taking a relaxing break in some of the most scenic spots in this country.

Take a look at some of the most stunning hideaways below:

1. Roulotte Retreat, Melrose

Do you fancy taking a break in a traditional Gypsy caravan? Circling a three acre meadow in the Scottish Borders and overlooked by the Eildon Hills, this is a magical place to stay. Each roulotte is unique, with decor that draws influence from Moroccan, Indian, Oriental and Celtic culture.

2. The Broch and Rock House, Borve Lodge Estate

Accommodation at Borve Lodge Estate is as unique as the environment. It enhances the experience of travelling to the remote Scottish island of Harris. Built in the most environmentally sympathetic way possible, The Rock House and The Broch are premier self-catering properties.

3. Dovecote Cottage, Edinburgh

This 17th century stone cottage brings in a sense of anticipation with its magical calmness and beauty. Light pours through attic windows in the high eves and underfloor heating provides a soft warmth throughout.

4. Blue Reef Cottages, Scarista

Set in the beautiful remote village of Scarista, Blue Reef Cottages provide you with the ideal ‘Hebridean’ retreat. Capture panoramic views of local beaches, settle in ideal locations to star gaze or simply watch the sunset from the comfort of your cottage.

5. Eagle Brae, Inverness-shire  

Last but not least, a 30-minute drive from Inverness will take you to the Eagle Brae. The cabins are hand-built from giant western red cedar logs from British Columbia. Sensitive lighting enhances the natural beauty of the wood inside the cabins. Not many retreats offer a luxury wilderness experience like this one!

Finally, with 2016 approaching its end, can you think of any better place to spend your holidays?
