View Comments

This week on social media, we’ve been causing a little mischief with our own take on the steamy phenomenon, Fifty Shades of Grey, the most hotly-anticipated topic on everyone’s lips this week – whether you admit to being a fan or not.


With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we decided that anything Hollywood can do, we can do better! So keep your colourful imaginations at home and delve into the contents of our latest groundbreaking saga, Fifty Shades of Scotland.


Scotland’s beguiling landscapes and stunning geographical features have a lot in common with Christian Grey; they’re just as brooding, enigmatic and powerful as the racy trilogy’s leading man, and they can certainly push you to the limit. Explore the rugged terrain of the Highlands, a dramatic patchwork of rolling hills, towering peaks and sensational views which will make you weak at the knees.


Get your heart racing with a burst of adrenalin…during a revitalising day of mountain biking in the Scottish hills. The perfect activity for an adventurous couple, take your relationship up a gear with a wild weekend in some of our top cycling spots.


If you have a penchant for city breaks, escape the hum-drum with a romantic getaway to Scotland’s capital city. If you can tear yourselves away from each other, embrace a vigorous hike up Arthur’s Seat and Salisbury Crags, where you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of Edinburgh’s phenomenal skyline.


Tease your tastebuds with a culinary journey across Scotland. Get to know Scotland by tasting the land’s decadent delicacies. With the help of our brand new Foodie Trails eBook, why not treat your partner to oysters (a well-known aphrodisiac) on the Seafood Trail, or a dram of malt whisky along the Malt Whisky Trail.

Don’t forget to view our Fifty Shades of Fabulous Food on Pinterest, or impress someone special with one of our romantic recipes this weekend.


Imposing standing stones and dramatic coastal scenery shrouded in a mysterious swirling mist, island-hopping in Scotland is bound to give you plenty of ‘oh my’ moments. From Orkney’s astounding archaeological sites to the breathtaking coasts of the Outer Hebrides, you’ll have no choice but to succumb to the islands’ charms.

As Ana and Christian know all too well, you never really know where a love affair will take you. So if you’re in love with Scotland, share your passions with the hashtag #FiftyShadesofScotland.
