Romantic Cottages in Scotland

When it comes to romantic cottages Scotland has a lot to offer. Simply visiting the Highlands can be romantic enough but add in a cosy cottage just big enough for two people hidden away near a beach or tucked in a forest with a view to the mountains and you add a bit more romance to your break. Your idea of a romantic cottage might include a roaring wood fire, or a sea view. Perhaps you’d like to take your partner to an island or just to a romantic cottage near a good restaurant and pub. We’ve got loads of all of them.
