In the bleak mid-winter the weather can often be wild and depressing. Why not escape the doom and gloom with a romantic retreat to the Highlands or wilds of Scotland? There are many lodges with hot tubs around the country, just perfect for a weekend retreat for two, or a special Valentine’s treat for your loved one. Here are just a few of your options:
– A sheltered island haven in Loch Shuna:
Scandinavian style lodges are found on the Island of Buidhe, which is connected to the mainland by a causeway, so you won’t be too cut off, you will just have the isolation as and when you want it.
– Nessy watching from Loch Ness Holiday Park:
Fancy your chances of spotting the famous monster? Why not stay in one of these lodges with hot tubs on the banks of the Loch and snuggle up with your loved one to gaze out over the spectacular scenery.
– A forest retreat in the Trossachs:
These lodges with hot tubs at Strathyre Forest are in a beautiful woodland setting between two lochs, just 39 miles from Glasgow, and yet offering a peaceful retreat from the modern world. Enjoy the wildlife on your doorstep.
Kinnaird Log Cabins, near Pitlochry in Perthshire, bill themselves as Scotland’s most romantic log cabins. Enjoy a romance on the Highland line when you bring your loved one to a ‘Love cabin’ and enjoy the beautiful scenery and peaceful surroundings.
– Watch the stars in Galloway Forest Park:
If you are looking for stargazing then this is the best place in Scotland for watching the heavens. Galloway forest park has been designated a Dark Skies Park, so your views will be clear of light pollution. The Orangerie, Galloway Forest, sleeps two, has a hot tub, and may just be the perfect starry-skies retreat.
– A rare romantic retreat in the Cairngorms:
There may not be a hot tub here – but the truly idyllic Lazy Duck ‘Woodman’s Hut’ and the ‘Duck’s Nest Luxury Hide’ deserve to be included on this list of romantic cabins. Set in an entirely unspoiled woodland with red squirrels and other wildlife plentiful, in the Cairngorms, this could be one of the most romantic spots in the whole of Scotland.
So whether you are trying a new romance on for size, or celebrating a love that has lasted, why not consider a lodge or cottage in Scotland for your romantic retreat? What are you waiting for?
