“Wherever I wander, wherever I rove, The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.” Robbie Burns
Uath Lochans is one of the prettiest woodlands in the area, with an easy trail around the lochans or a longer route up to a superb view over Strathspey.
Looking to escape for a cosy rural retreat then look no further than Eco Camp Glenshee, with the option to stay in a romantic shepherds hut, bell tent or yurt. The site has zero light pollution so you and your partner can get a stunning view of the nights sky.
Roaring fires, candle lit dinners and opulent bedrooms are waiting for you at this beautiful highland lodge. What could be more perfect for a romantic break.
A beautiful river location where you can view the river Dee, flow down from its source in the Cairngorms, cascading through the narrow gorge. A magical spot which is bound to create some wonderful memories. Head to the newly renovated Fife Arms to celebrate afterwards.
In the Snow
Snow is magical and we are lucky to have more of chance of lieing snow at this time of year than the rest of the country. Find a quiet spot and the silence is extra golden in the cold white landscape. Be sure to wear salopettes/waterproof trousers if you are going to get down on one knee!
Take a moment to behold
Take a drive on one of the most beautiful routes through the Cairngorms over the Lecht to the watchers scenic posts which look down towards Corgarff castle. The posts are situated here beside the original spy stone pictured below. A very pictuersque spot to pop the big question.
