Romantic stays in Scotland

Looking for a romantic hotel in Scotland? Look no further, these charming hideaways are perfect for lovebirds.

1) The Hideaway Experience

The Hideaway was built with lovebirds and luxury firmly in mind. Their modern lodges are equipped with everything you need to wind down with each one having a sauna, wood-burning stove, BBQ, double hammock and a hot tub on the outdoor private decking. A great place if you are looking to celebrate a special occasion or just want a break from modern distractions. Local quality produce hampers can be pre-ordered such as breakfast packs, movie night packs or even lobster that you can cook in-house, so you don’t have to worry about leaving. Adults only, so unfortunately the kids have to stay at home.
