Cheap romantic getaways, Scotland
3. Isle of Skye
It would be impolite to include the Isle of Skye’s Fairy Pools from our list as they were just crowned the UK’s most romantic vacation spot. The Fairy Pools are a collection of several low-lying waterfalls and crystal-clear pools that may be seen close to Glenbrittle at the base of the Black Cuillins. Although the water is undoubtedly cold—after all, this is Scotland—many brave tourists can’t help but plunge in. The 2.4km roundtrip walk to the pools is equally as picturesque as the pools themselves and has been rated as “short” in length and “medium” in difficulty.
You can stay in the midst of untouched natural beauty at Skyewalker Hostel. There is a beach nearby where you can regularly see whales, dolphins, basking sharks, and Skye’s renowned eagles.
4. Fort William
Fort William, which is recognized as the entrance to Ben Nevis, the highest peak in the UK, is situated in the western Scottish Highlands on the shores of Loch Linnhe. If you’re searching for some serious outdoor fun, the Nevis Range Mountain Resort is ideal. It has everything from ski runs to forest paths.
You may enjoy a modern open-plan sitting area with a log-burning stove and expansive mountain views when you stay at Glen Nevis Youth Hostel. After spending the day outside, the ideal retreat.
Stride to the summit of Edinburgh’s renowned Arthur’s Seat with a picnic basket filled with all your favorite foods and a stylish bottle of wine (screw top!). A picnic on top of a dormant volcano is the epitome of romance. At 251 miles above sea level and just a short stroll from the city’s Royal Mile, Holyrood Park offers unrivaled vistas of the city.
Stay at The Baxter, a distinctively designed hostel that was specially developed. You’ll be content to unwind here in between exploring historic Edinburgh thanks to the modern, stylish, and lively décor.
