Looking to get away from it all? It’s easy to see why lazing on a stunning tropical beach is first in mind.
There are some incredible Honeymoon beach destinations across the world but did you know Scotland’s got some of the most gorgeous? We round up the best honeymoon breaks Scotland has to offer.
St Cyrus Beach, Aberdeen
Set in a National Nature Reserve, St Cyrus beach is perfect for lovers of wildlife. Stroll along three miles of soft, sandy beaches overlooked by red granite cliffs.
Split your stay between the west end of the city and the beach and stay at the Palm Court Hotel, around 50 minutes’ journey from St Cyrus. Enjoy the traditional Scottish fare of The Bothy restaurant, a local favourite.
Sandwood Bay, Sutherland
A little further out but well worth it, Castle Carrick’s five-star luxury apartments, Carrick Apartments 1877, are perfect for those wishing to explore. A good night’s rest in a king-size bed with goose down duvet will set you up for a busy day.
It’s nearest to one of the UK’s most beautiful beaches. Sandwood Bay faces to the North Atlantic across a stretch of wide pink sand. You can’t reach this beach by car, but the four-mile walk is totally justified to see the impressive Am Buachaille rock stack.
Kildonan Beach, Isle of Arran
Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches on the stunning Isle of Arran, Kildonan has clear views across Pladda to the mainland.
Millpond Cottage is a stone’s throw away from the beach; a charming stone cottage with its own private garden. You can even bring your dog along – perfect for couples who want to feel at home yet secluded.
Luskentyre Sands, South Harris
One of the most spectacular beaches in the Outer Hebrides and named one of the UK’s best beaches by TripAdvisor, this stretch of white sands against the sparkling turquoise sea will make you feel like you’re on a tropical island!
The Broch & The Rock House are two unique retreats for couples who want to get away from it all. Built into the landscape and looking like part of the hillside, the views from these quirky self-catering properties is second to none.
