Scotland's Best B&Bs

Romantic Scotland


Scotland is surely one of the most romantic countries in the world. It's a very popular destination for weddings and honeymoons, as well as Valentine's breaks.

Enjoy spectacular sunsets over the Solway Firth or explore romantic castle ruins in the Highlands. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, Eilean Donan Castle, Glencoe, the Isle of Skye and Loch Ness are some of the most well known romantic locations in Scotland, but there's lots more to explore. It's not just about the misty lochs and glens, but experiences like watching the sun set over standing stones, hoping for a sighting of the Northern Lights, or spotting dolphins and whales.

What makes Scotland so romantic?

  • Stunning scenery
  • Lochs & glens

Afternoon tea at the Auld Post Office B&B, Caithness

There's more to Scotland than just shortbread, whisky and haggis! We have fresh seafood and salmon, as well as game such as grouse and venison, not to mention Aberdeen Angus steaks. There are also dozens of artisan cheese makers, craft breweries and unique gin distilleries. From gourmet seafood platters to traditional fish and chips, there's something for everyone with increasingly more options available nowadays for vegans and vegetarians using the best of local seasonal produce.

Many of our B&Bs can offer you some of their own delicious home baking on arrival, and some hosts can even make you a full Afternoon Tea. Whether you want to enjoy a full Scottish breakfast or lighter options, our B&Bs will use fresh local produce to set up you well for the day.
