This issue we’ve gone a little castle crazy, because who doesn’t love a castle, particularly one you can cosy down in as the wind and snow battle each other outside? First up, you can enter our competition for a chance of winning a stay at the romantic Fonab Castle in the Perthshire countryside – an idyllic Highlands hideaway, we think you’ll agree.
Meanwhile, we discover Ayrshire, a heartland of luxury travel, where we visit one of Scotland’s most picturesque castle hotels, Glenapp Castle, and one of its most luxurious golf hotels: tasteful Turnberry.
At Armadale Castle on Skye’s Sleat Peninsula, there’s no chance of getting snug, since the castle where Flora Macdonald wed in 1750 now stands in ruin. However, just a couple of miles up the road you’ll receive a warm Gaelic welcome at Hotel Eilean Iarmain. We seek some peace and quiet on popular Skye.
And finally, if you are itching to get back to Scotland, then there can be few better ways of visiting our many isles and heritage sights than on a small ship cruise. We cruise into 2022 with a round up of some of the best. Enjoy.
We bed-surf our way around southwest Scotland, home to some of the most outrageously luxurious hotels in the whole country, set amid some of its most underrated scenery.
Wildlife encounters, island hopping, and expert guides, here’s why a small ship cruise is one of the top ways to see Scotland.
How Glenfiddich rose from a small family operation to become the biggest single malt brand in the world
Scotland magazine is delighted to be able to offer one reader and their guest the chance to win an overnight stay with dinner and bed and breakfast at Fonab Castle Hotel & Spa in Highland Perthshire
