Romantic Places to Propose in Scotland

In Scotland, you're not short of breathtaking backdrops which make the perfect setting for the most romantic and memorable of moments. Find proposal ideas and the best places to propose in Scotland.
Scotland's boasts some of the UK's most beautiful beaches. An isolated bay on an island in the Outer Hebrides, Orkney or Shetland, or maybe a remote sandy cove along the coast of the mainland won't fail to impress, particularly when the sun is setting. Then it's just a gentle stroll along white sands, gazing out to crystal blue waters, before getting down on one knee.
Whether it's a dramatic clifftop ruin or a striking turreted baronial build, the sight of a castle has the power to take your breath away. At Edinburgh Castle, you can even hire a special room to ensure your proposal is completely exclusive and intimate.
The allure of a loch is pretty hard to beat, with glistening waters surrounded by dramatic scenery. Loch Lomond is often hailed to be the most romantic of all of Scotland's lochs, but Loch Trool in Dumfries & Galloway and Loch Katrine in the Trossachs are both rather magical too.
How about a walk to remember? Climb to the peak of a rugged Munro such as the conical Schiehallion, or perhaps venture up the Eildon Hills in Scottish Borders. Pop the question as you pause to take in beautiful panoramic views before celebrating with a drink in a historic country pub.
Take your loved one to dizzying new heights on a hot air balloon ride or seaplane trip and literally sweep them off their feet! Scotland looks truly majestic from the air and there's no thrill quite like soaring above the world. You could take a seaplane from Glasgow to Loch Lomond or float over Stirling Castle and the National Wallace Monument in a hot air balloon.
Wherever you choose to say those all-important words, remember you can always add a few memorable touches, be it throwing a surprise picnic or whisking your beloved to a Michelin star restaurant. Perhaps you'll follow the question as you take part in a thrilling adventure activity. Bungee jump or human catapult proposal, anyone?
