The spectacular cruise along the pristine shoreline of Loch Lomond shall make you fall in love with the place but more than that, you’ll feel blessed to have seen such a nature’s marvel in the company of your significant other.
Eilean Donan Castle, Dornie
Castles have always been about Prince Charming who comes to the rescue of a damsel in distress to sketch out a happily ever after. Well, your love story isn’t any less than a fairytale. So, why not give that kick start to your “happily ever after” at the Eilean Donan Castle. The castle looks drop dead gorgeous in its solitude. This 13th century castle — an iconic Scottish landmark — is located where three lochs meet transporting you back in time.

Glenfinnan Viaduct, Highlands
Today, Glenfinnan Viaduct is widely known as the “Harry Potter Bridge.” And I’m pretty sure that you must have spotted this epic viaduct on the T.V. screen somewhere, sometime, even if you are not an ardent Harry Potter fan. Not a fan?! I’m totally judging you. Just Kidding! A fan or not, the giant curving Glenfinnan Viaduct is a thing of beauty, sitting pretty amidst the stunning landscape of the Western Highlands. To take the experience a notch higher, hop on the old fashioned Jacobite Steam Train alias The Hogwarts Express and enjoy a ride along the enigmatic lush scenery. There’s nothing better than falling in love all over again on a ride that feels like a thing of fantasy.
The Northern Lights, Caithness
Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis have caught the fancy of people since the dawn of mankind. The spectacular display of lights dancing in the sky looks like the best work of artists. Nothing compares to the beauty of the Northern Lights. The northern most part of Scotland is one of those few rare blessed places from where you can catch a glimpse of nature’s most captivating wonder. Just imagine standing hand in hand with your love under the sky watcing the magnificent dancing lights. Do not shy away from stealing those kisses as nature celebrates your togetherness. Autumn and winter is when you can catch the fascinating Aurora Borealis displays at its best.
Calgary Bay, Isle of Mull
Beaches have somewhat become synonymous to romance. The idea of lounging on the sand with vistas of azure waters leaping in joy is the definition of ultimate bliss. And when Calgary Bay is what we speak of, it only gets better. The stretch of white sand greeting the crystal clear water with hills fencing the area and Machair grass bordering the sand is alluring in every sense of the word. You can even wild camp, which means you can be just lost in each other in this nature’s playground.
Therefore, it’s always a great idea to take out time and leave behind the pretentious world to thank your beloved for all the selfless love and care. And, clearly no country can be better for that much needed romantic escape than Scotland. The country is decked with so many attractions especially for people in love that no amount of time can be enough to explore it all. All that being said, start looking for business class flight tickets to Scotland and have a great time with your special someone.
