Something special lives inside the Scottish borders. A quiet, mist-covered charm that you won’t find anywhere else. One look at Scotland’s stunning views and it’s easy to see why it was voted the most beautiful country in the world a few years ago. From the gentle sparkle that dances over the top of Loch Ness, to the whispering wind that blows across Ben Nevis, Britain’s most northerly nation is home to a Celtic magic that makes every holiday in Scotland unique and unforgettable.
It’s an experience that doesn’t sound like it could get any better. That is, of course, until we tell you where you could be staying.
