5-Star Hotel Guide


Scotland's will leave you breathless, but our 5-star hotels will revive you with fine cuisine and a whisky or two


5-star hotel guide to Scotland

Home to some of the most dramatic scenery in the British Isles, the land of lochs, bagpipes, tartan, whisky and haggis is sure to leave a lasting impression on even the most seasoned traveller. Our tip is to head for the Highlands to experience the true Scotland.

Wild and alluring, the Scottish Highlands offers mountains, lochs, islands, sandy beaches, rugged coves and mesmerising vistas. Long a destination for trekking, climbing and country pusuits, this sparsely populated northern region of the UK is staggeringly beautiful, so has also appealed to creative souls, especially poets and writers from the Romanticists to today's authors.

Combine exploring with grand style at Inverlochy Castle, nestled beneath the UK's tallest mountain, Ben Nevis, with dreamy views across water, meadows, forests and a valley of rolling hills. This noble Victorian edifice, built in 1863, also serves up delectable seasonal fare, offering a mind-blowing combination of fine gastronomy, amazing local ingredients and authentic Scottish tradition.

Nature lovers will be in heaven at Alladale Wilderness Reserve, an elegant escape in the heart of the Highlands. Alladale’s charming Victorian manor offers a luxurious stay in an incredible setting and its smaller cottages provide private accommodation for families or friends wanting to escape from the hurly-burly of city life.
