Scotland’s heritage, landscapes and folklore all make it the ideal place for romance. With so many spots, towns and cities, all with something special for you to see or do with your significant other, we thought we would help by sharing us a few of our favourites in our City and on our tour routes with you.
1. Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh
Is there a more romantic place for a picnic than on top of an extinct volcano? The panoramic views of Edinburgh from the top are amazing and you take a stroll around the loch to see the swans. The Queen has a home there too so you know it’s a good spot.
2. Glenfinnan Viaduct
One of the best known spots in Scotland, thanks to the Harry Potter movie series is the Glenfinnan Viaduct. A trip on the vintage Jacobite Steam Train is a something you will never forget. It’s like taking a trip back in time, or being the star of a classic movie.
3. Dunfermline Abbey and Palace
Dunfermline Abbey can trace its roots back to 1070. Packed with history, not only as a former palace for previous Kings and Queens of Scotland but also as a place of power being the capital of Scotland.
It is also the resting place of William Wallace and King Robert Bruce
A beautiful spot in a historic town, it’s a beautiful spot to spent time with your loved one.
4. Glen Coe
Recently voted as Scotland’s most romantic glen, with stunning landscape, wildlife and natural beauty Glen Coe is an obvious choice for this title. It’s history is also a major asset with some very romantic and dark stories to tell. The area has been used for many films from Harry Potter to James Bond. We doubt you could visit and not fall in love with Glen Coe.
5. Loch Lomond Cruise
Take a boat cruise on the banks of Loch Lomond and you will have see some of the the nation’s most beautiful scenery and with a host of uninhabited islands, there’s plenty of wildlife to see on this romantic trip.
6. St Andrews
It’s where William met Kate and their romance blossomed and no wonder, its a beautiful town. It has awarded winning beaches, beautiful scenery, stunning architecture, interesting history and some of the best fish and chips you can find. It truly is a breathtaking town.
