Luxury Breaks in Scotland

Want access to Scotland's best championship golf courses, a gorgeous relaxing spa, or the best table at a Michelin-star dining room? How about driving a 4x4 around a Highland estate, fishing from your hotel's own salmon river, or access to tasting sessions at a local whisky distillery? Checking into a posh, 5-star or luxury hotel in Scotland offers up a break like no other.

Here are some ideas for your luxury break in Scotland:

  • Check into a country boutique hotel in the beautiful Highlands of Perthshire. Explore 'Big Tree Country' by Land Rover Safari to spot red deer, soaring golden eagles and mountain hares, before having a dram of some local whisky.
  • Stay in a traditional hunting lodge on the River Spey in the Cairngorms - famous for salmon fishing, the towns on the Spey also host the annual Highland Games.
  • Book into a luxury hotel on the west coast of Scotland - try your hand at sea fishing, dine on freshly landed lobster and locally grown oysters, or get out sailing - the sunsets on the west coast of Scotland are simply incredible.
  • Love golf and fancy playing the best courses in Scotland? Many 5-star hotels have their own championship golf courses, or offer access to tournaments to their guests.
  • Escape to the country for a spa or wellness break - swim in your hotel's outdoor pool, relax in a hot tub overlooking the sea, and indulge in a massage or two in one of Scotland's world-class spas - don't forget that holidays should be about relaxation too!
