The best thing about choosing Highland Perthshire as your Scotland honeymoon destination is that you really can do as much, or as little as you’d like.

Soak-Up the Culture


If you’d rather get out and about a bit more and see for yourself what a truly remarkable country Scotland can be, then, of course, there’s plenty of opportunities to do that.

Roughly a two-hour drive from our romantic honeymoon hotel in Scotland you’ll find Edinburgh, Glasgow, Loch Lomond, and Loch Ness, with the famous city of Aberdeen just two and a half hours away.

As such, you can enjoy unforgettable day trips to leading attractions like Edinburgh Castle, Glasgow Necropolis, and more.

Who knows, you may even catch a glimpse of Nessie herself.

Explore the Fascinating History of Scotland

Don’t feel like driving too far? 

Much closer to home, you’ll find a wealth of fascinating Highland history right here on our doorstep. 

For example, Blair Castle is a 700+year-old venue with more than its fair share of incredible stories to tell.

Whether it’s the pivotal roles it played in the Scottish Civil war and the Jacobite rising of 1745 to times the castle played host to a who’s who of Scottish historical figures like Mary Queen of Scots, Bonnie Prince Charlie, and Mary Queen of Scots, few places offer more remarkable tales than Blair Castle. 

Dunkeld Cathedral does come pretty close. It was in the nearby fields where, in 1689, the Jacobites took on the Covenanters in the gruesome and violent Battle of Dunkeld, a legendary and historically significant event that is still talked about in solemn tones to this day.

In fdact, you don’t even need to leave our hotel as Dunalastair Hotel Suites has its remarkable history worth exploring.

What are the most romantic places in Scotland?

Queen’s View, Gretna Green, Lover’s Stone in St. Kilda, and Blair castle are all popular romantic spots. For more, see our guide to 14 romantic days out in Scotland.

What’s the ideal amount of time to spend on a honeymoon in Scotland?

This all depends on how much you’re looking to do -or not do- as the case may be. While some may prefer a 2-3 day romantic weekend away, others find that a full 7-10 day staycation gives them ample time to try all the activities and attractions.

How early should you plan?

Given that we only have one honeymoon suite, it pays to play your stay as early as possible. As soon as you know, your heart is set on a Highland Honeymoon, get in touch to avoid disappointment.

How much should we budget per day for our honeymoon?

Again, this all depends on how you’re going to spend your time. Suppose you’re out walking in the hills or thoroughly enjoying the natural beauty of the Highlands. In that case, you may need no more than £30-40 per day for your food or drinks, while buying tickets to visitor attractions and souvenirs will naturally add to your costs.
