Inverlochy Castle Hotel

Nestled in the foothills of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, sits a majestic gem of a destination dating from the 19th century. Located close to Fort William with its own loch and woodland for company, it will soon leave you spellbound. Once you’ve explored the extensive grounds, why not partake in some clay pigeon shooting or archery on-site, before heading into the sumptuous indoor surroundings for exquisite food and drinks. Then finish the evening at the full-size snooker table, or simply sink into one of the luxurious armchairs with a good book.

The Torridon

Set amongst rugged surroundings on the renowned North Coast 500 driving route, The Torridon is the ultimate stop-off destination, from which you can challenge yourself in the mountains, or relax in a bar with a choice of 365 whiskies. You’ll also have acres of parkland to unwind in, or you can take one of their canoes for a paddle along the loch to decompress your mind. The boutique resort sits in one of the darkest locations in the world, making it a sought after spot for stargazing. The Torridon offers a fascinating astronomical experience where you can dine in style while being educated on the night sky, before putting it all into practice with professional expertise by your side using the latest equipment. And for the daytime, how about some invigorating gorge scrambling?

Glenapp Castle

A magnificent baronial destination for those seeking privacy and adventure. Take a peaceful stroll through its vast garden grounds admiring the exotic plants and views overlooking the Firth of Clyde, before settling down for some fine dining in the award-winning restaurant while watching a sunset over the island of Ailsa Craig. Your next day could begin with tennis, or for those seeking a more sedate pace – croquet. And for the intrepid spirits, Glenapp is your gateway to a five-day Hebridean Sea Safari, complete with marine biologist, for an unforgettable wildlife-spotting odyssey around some of Scotland’s most interesting islands.

Fonab Castle Hotel & Spa

Enjoying an extraordinary setting in Highland Perthshire, this thoughtfully restored retreat will give you a trip to remember. Expect awe-inspiring views towards Loch Faskally and Ben Vrackie, delicious food from the 3 AA Rosette restaurant, and some pampering at the woodland spa – which includes a 15m swimming pool, sauna and steam room. And if you want to spend your time more energetically, there is no shortage of activities on offer. From helicopter rides and a Land Rover 4x4 experience, to white water rafting and bungee jumping, your stay can be as adrenaline-packed or chilled out as you wish. Whatever you choose, you will have picturesque surroundings to take in along the way.

Isle of Eriska Hotel

This secluded getaway sits on a private island a few miles north of Oban in Argyllshire. You’ll have 365 acres to call your own during your stay, with idyllic surroundings to soothe and recharge your mind and body. A luxurious spa awaits, as does an award-winning restaurant. Wander the woodland trails and you stand a good chance of seeing plenty of wildlife. Seals are regular visitors to the shoreline, and ensure you look skyward to glimpse a golden eagle. Or why not take a private yacht trip around the Isle of Lismore? Back on Eriska, you’ll have a diverse selection of activities to choose from, including golf, mountain biking and axe throwing!
