9 of the most luxurious honeymoon suites in Scotland
Kick off married life in style in a venue with an Insta-worthy honeymoon suite…
Nestled in the Biggar countryside, Cornhill Castle’s three-storey Balmoral honeymoon suite was unveiled in 2017 as part of the venue’s £850,000 revamp.
Occupying one of the castle’s original turrets, the first floor comprises a beautifully decorated living room with a winding staircase leading up to the bedroom.
One of the highlights of this dreamy suite is the bathroom, a sunken area just off the bedroom complete with large hot tub bath, a two-person sauna and a massive rainfall shower.
The top floor is a real hidden gem: a one-of-a-kind champagne room in which bottles of fizz adorn the specially adapted walls, and a special bottle chilled to exactly the right temperature has pride of place in the centre of the room.
