You think of a romantic getaway and Paris probably comes to mind find first, then maybe the Amalfi Coast or Bora Bora. I am here to let you in on a secret. Scotland is the most romantic place in the world… and here’s why.
Scotland the most romantic place in the world because…
1) There’s solitude.
Maybe not in Edinburgh or Glasgow. And the Isle of Skye is pretty crowded in the summer but there are still remote nooks and crannies where you can have your loved one all to yourself.
2) There’s rain.
I know what you are thinking. Nobody wants rain on their trip, especially not on a romantic getaway. This must be the downside. Actually it’s one of the best perks.
Just imagine. With all the rain outside and the wind howling, the two of you have a perfect excuse to stay in bed and explore each other or just relax with no pressure to go visit the must see sights.
3) There are quaint little tea rooms.
So there are no charming patios like in Paris or Italy, where you get to indulge in a glass of wine while nibbling on a hard to pronounce delicacy. Instead there is an abundance of cozy tea rooms, where you get lots and lots of steaming cups of tea and scrumptious scones and buttery sweets.
4) There are sandy beaches.
There are high end restaurants in Scotland too, maybe a few less than in other places. But you know what’s even better and way more romantic? Taking a blanket, getting local fish and chips and having a pick nick on one of the most beautiful sandy beaches. And in Scotland there are so many to chose from. You don’t have to be very lucky to get one just for the two of you.
5) There are whitewashed cottages.
A small whitewashed cottage overlooking the sea with a burning stove in the living room and sheep all around. It might be just me, but I think no fancy hotel can be more romantic. More relaxed and give you a chance to reconnect with your loved one.
All of that makes Scotland the most romantic place in the world.
And since Scotland is so romantic I have set my upcoming novel Faodail in the North of Scotland.
You can pre-order it here.
Sophie Moore has her eyes set on a promotion at a bank in London City and not on Aiden, an up and coming chef. Then she learns her one night stand with Aiden resulted in pregnancy.
Her life is turned upside down, when she decides to keep the baby, quit her job at the bank and follow the reluctant Father-to-be to his hometown on a remote Scottish island.
The stay on the island is only temporary, Aiden promises, while Sophie vows to keep him at a distance. But once on the island, things don’t go as planned.
