Into history?
 Head to one of Scotland’s historic castles and feel like royalty for the day. Scotland has many castles to visit, and you can enjoy stunning ancient architecture, mysterious ruins or fairytale castles.

Love to try local dishes?
 Sample Scotland’s impressive natural larder at one of the many authentic food and drink establishments. Go for city centre fine-dining and Michelin Star rated restaurants or traditional places in the countryside. Be sure to make a trip to one of Scotland’s gin or whisky distilleries for a tour or tasting session.

Keen to enjoy the great outdoors?
If you’re looking to switch off and spend quality time with your beau, Scotland provides amazing landscapes, stunning natural beauty spots and plenty of wide-open spaces to explore. Why not head to the Highlands and be in awe of the rugged yet romantic surroundings? Or choose a quaint and calming cottage by the sea where you’ll have only seabirds as neighbours. You can discover new destinations in Scotland with unspoiled beauty, and find hidden gems along the way. Get away from it all and recharge your batteries together; whether it’s a post-wedding break or to rejuvenate yourselves ahead of your wedding.
