Rest, Relax, Unwind: How to Plan a Perfectly Peaceful Scottish Break

If we didn’t know any better, we’d swear that Scotland was explicitly designed to serve as an ideal haven for those looking for the ultimate relaxing getaway.

Across its endless miles of enchanting scenery, the country is full of perfect pampering spots, areas of natural beauty that simply radiate serenity, and everything you need to truly get away from the hustle, bustle, and hassle of modern life.

Here, the team at the five-star Dunalastair Hotel Suites in Highland Perthshire outline everything you need to know to plan an entirely peaceful Scottish break the likes of which you’ll cherish for years to come.

Plan a Leisurely, Relaxing Stroll

Every year, around 2,000,000 people head to the Highlands to take on one of 26 different long-distance walking routes covering a total of 1,7000 miles while thousands more head this way tackle the country’s 282 Munros for a combined height of over 3,000 feet.

While this may be fine for them, but let’s be honest:

That’s far more hard work than you’re looking for from your relaxing Scottish break.

Still, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the great outdoors.

Though Scotland presents many opportunities for hardened hikers, it’s just as good for those looking for a gentle amble.

Don’t fancy going too far?

Perhaps you could take in the tranquillity of our own Loch Rannoch. A short five-minute walk from Dunalastair Hotel Suites, there’s no better spot for a relaxing stroll, linking arm-in-arm with someone you love while filling your lungs with that pure highland air and finding yourselves utterly captivated by the unbridled beauty of the nearby surroundings.
