Honeymoons in Scotland
A Scottish honeymoon is your chance to experience the wild, romantic beauty of this proudly independent nation. From its historic and cultured cities to its stunning landscapes and bewitching islands, Scotland is an unforgettable country.
Scotland's three principal cities are Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. Although Glasgow is the capital, it is Edinburgh that attracts the most visitors, with its annual International Festival, incredible architectural heritage and of course Edinburgh Castle, former home to the Scottish Royal Family. One of the greatest pleasures of Edinburgh is simply strolling though the Georgian area of the city center, admiring the beautiful streets, squares and buildings.
Glasgow has enjoyed a real renaissance over the last two decades, and is a fun and lively capital city with a great amount to see and do. Alongside the many art galleries, museums, monuments and shops is Glasgow cathedral, a masterpiece from the Gothic era.
The port city of Aberdeen is built almost exclusively of silvery granite, which glistens in sun or rain. As befitting a harbor city it has a superb maritime museum alongside a prestigious art gallery.
St. Andrews is undoubtedly Scotland's most beautiful town, home to the most famous golf course in the world, a historic university where the future King of England is currently studying, and some fascinating medieval ruins.
The Cairngorm mountains are surrounded by rivers, lochs and forests, home to rare wildlife. The beautiful region is popular for skiing, hiking and water sports. For more natural beauty, the wild and lonely Hebrides islands off the west coast are centers of Scottish whisky production and offer superb panoramic views along their coastal walks. The windswept cliffs, mountains and bays will take your breath away.
Whisky, bagpipes, tartan and kilts are all inextricably
linked with Scotland and are important parts of the national culture.
Other vital ingredients are the ancient castles and churches, architecture
of every style imaginable and seemingly endless untamed landscapes. All
of this and much more is waiting for you on your Scottish honeymoon.
