Go away on a last minute break with your loved one…

Now that we have been enjoying August for a while, does that mean summer will shortly be coming to a close in Scotland?!

If the recent weather updates are anything to go by (an extra 3 months of hot weather you say?!) we’re hoping there might be some more sunny days to come.
For those who have already jetted off on summer holidays and now back to reality, secretly wishing to still be away, we recommend reading on…
Sun or no sun – a short break in Scotland can be just what you need!

Banavie, near Fort William

The Lock Keeper’s Cottage is a beautiful, luxurious cottage situated right on the banks of the Caledonian Canal and Banavie Bridge just a couple of miles from Fort William itself. Split into two different apartments that both sleep 2 people, the cottage offers a cosy retreat within easy reach of Fort William’s key attractions, as well as convenient onward access to the Upper Highlands and the Isle of Skye. Stunning views are guaranteed over the Canal, Ben Nevis and beyond, and you can always cosy up by the open fire after a long day of hiking.





Our recommendation of things to do during your stay:



Be at one with nature in the Lochanview Log Cabins located in Dumfries. These log cabins are surrounded by a forest – great for those who love walking, exploring the countryside and also those who don’t mind the odd encounter with a hungry badger or a curious deer from time to time. Couples can enjoy a romantic break away in the comfort of their cosy cabin and being pet-friendly, four-legged friends are welcome to join you too! The cabins sleep up to 6 people, and with many activities nearby such as fishing, sailing, cycling, golf, they make a great retreat for adventure loving friends. Did we mention there are some great beaches too?



Our recommendation of things to do during your stay:



The Spa Uniq Retreat Cabin offers guests a completely unique experience – one which involves complete tranquility and relaxation. Like the sound of that? Let us tell you more…

There’s no place quite like it. How does waking up in the morning, hopping in the sauna and then relaxing in your own hot tub sound? Perfect? We think so! This beautiful, south-facing spa cabin comes equipped with a cedar barrel sauna and it’s own private roofed hot tub – ideal to help you make the most of the summer sunshine. Whether your getaway is for a special occasion, or you’re simply looking for some chill time, this one is definitely worth exploring.
