14 Dreamlike, Snug, And Romantic Winter Hideaways In Scotland

7. Croft 103, Durness, Sutherland

Croft 103, Durness, Sutherland

The most stressful decision you’ll have to make if you stay in this awesome, modern eco-hideout in the far north of Scotland is whether to take a hot bath inside…or outside. Both baths have a view of the serene waters of Loch Eriboll, which sounds like something out of The Lord of the Rings, frankly.

8. The Gypsy Palace, Kirk Yetholm, Scottish Borders

The Gypsy Palace, Kirk Yetholm, Scottish Borders

If you’re looking for a cosy retreat that won’t break the bank, how about this adorable AF little cottage in the Scottish Borders, which sits in a tranquil, picturesque valley in the Cheviot Hills? It’s the perfect base for a spot of hiking (if you can manage to tear yourself away from the cheerful stove, hot tea, and thick wool blankets).

9. The Broch, Borve Lodge Estate, Isle of Harris

The Broch, Borve Lodge Estate, Isle of Harris

Brochs are ancient, stone-walled hollow towers that were originally built in the Iron Age, and possibly used for defensive purposes. In contrast, this modern broch was purpose-built as a snug luxury retreat, with a vast oval bath, several wood-burning stoves, and views across the sylvan, tree-covered Borve Valley.
