Romantic Activities to Enjoy in Scotland

Skye Scotland

Scotland has regularly been voted one of the most beautiful countries in the world and rightly so. With dramatic mountainous landscapes, beautiful greenery and abundant wildlife, the country at the top of the UK has an undeniable charm. It’s this beauty that has made Scotland a great choice for couples looking for a romantic retreat where they can relax and unwind together.

Whether you’re looking to surprise a loved one or planning a holiday together, we’re here to help. In this quick guide, we are going to cover some of the most romantic and enjoyable things you can do with a partner in Scotland.

Stargazing in Galloway Forest Park

Tucked away in the Scottish Lowlands, Galloway Forest Park is internationally recognised not for its wildlife or trees but for its night sky. In 2009, the International Dark-Sky Association designated Galloway Forest Park as the fourth Dark Sky Park in the world, meaning that the light pollution in the region is controlled to ensure the night sky is as clear as possible.

The result of this effort is a stunning stargazing opportunity where you can see thousands of stars and even small glimpses of the Milky Way. It’s quiet moments in the dark like these which can be incredible memories and experiences to share with a loved one.

Spa Days

Alternatively, for a more relaxing indoor romantic experience, consider investing in a spa day. Scotland has a range of health establishments offering a host of different massages, treatments and services to help you and your loved one unwind together. Additionally, spa days can make a great surprise gift if you’re looking to pamper someone special, offering both affordability and luxury depending on your budget.

It’s also worth considering thinking about spas when searching for your accommodation. Whilst guesthouses and hostels are unlikely to have on-site spa facilities, there are more luxurious places you can stay which will offer their own health and relaxation services. Whether it’s a spa hotel near Glasgow or a retreat hidden in the Scottish hills, the country is sure to have something that works for you.

Isle of Skye Getaway

The Isle of Skye is a brilliant romantic getaway choice if you want to have a range of Scottish experiences right on your doorstep. Often referred to as a ‘mini-Scotland’, the Isle of Skye is a beautifully quaint island in the Inner Hebrides which offers a range of different landscapes to explore.

From picturesque fishing villages to wildlife-filled mountainous regions, the Isle of Skye is brimming with new things to see and learn about. The island also has a unique and varied history spanning all manner of fields from dinosaurs to castle ruins – it’s all about finding what you and your loved one will enjoy most. If you’re not sure where to start with your romantic getaway, seeing what the Isle of Skye has to offer is a great first step.

Journey Through the Highland Countryside

Finally, consider exploring the incredible views across the Scottish highlands in one of the most unique ways possible – a steam train journey. The Jacobite steam train that runs through this beautiful region of the country takes a winding route, allowing you to sit comfortably and enjoy the natural beauty that the country is known for. One of the major highlights of the trip is the Glenfinnan Viaduct, an ancient bridge dating back to the early 1900s.

Plus, if the views weren’t enough, this is the same train and bridge used for the Hogwarts Express in Harry Potter – perfect if you or your loved one are a fan of the series.

Whilst these suggestions aren’t the only romantic things to do in Scotland, they are definitely some of the best. Wherever you’re visiting in the country, you are sure to find something unique to enjoy, it’s just about doing a little research and finding our what’s available.
