Whether it’s a weekend break in Scotland or a longer holiday together, there are plenty of great getaways for couples, where you can spend quality time together in beautiful surroundings. Self-catering gives you the privacy, freedom and flexibility you need to really make the most of your time away, whether you want to cosy up in front of a log fire, enjoy long walks on the beach or go sightseeing in the city. From lodges with spa baths and cottages with hot tubs to elegant city apartments, we have a wide range of cottages for couples.
Here are 5 ideas for a self-catering trip for two in Scotland:
Head to the Highlands for a hideaway you’ll never forget. For a truly romantic ‘get away from it all’ break, wrap yourself in a palette of gorgeous heather-clad hills and turquoise waters, and discover rugged mountain landscapes, isolated beaches, peaceful glens and picturesque towns.
How about some pampering in the city? Stay in your own private apartment in one of Scotland’s cities and you can enjoy the sightseeing and shopping, relax in the bars and simply soak up the city atmosphere. Do your own thing in your own time and really explore the city from your home-from-home.
Romantic Rural Retreats
Cuddle up in the countryside in a cosy rural retreat. Perthshire, Dumfries and Galloway, and the Scottish Borders are all perfect places to soak up tranquil scenery. Take long forest walks, go cycling or just enjoy some quiet time together in picturesque surroundings.
Idyllic Island Escapes
Cast your troubles away and enjoy the truly tranquil surroundings of Scotland’s stunning islands. From self-catering in the remote isles of the Hebrides, Shetland and Orkney to holiday cottages in Mull and Islay, an island getaway is ideal for simply spending time together away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Cosy up in a cottage on the beach and enjoy your own piece of picturesque coastline. With over 7,000 miles of coast, there are plenty of places to enjoy a slice of the seaside, from the Moray Firth to the East Neuk of Fife.
