Valentines Day falls on a Friday this year and now that we have all hauled ourselves out of January it’s time to look forward. So whether you are looking for a different way to celebrate Valentines Day or are just thinking about getting away with someone special for a few days, hiring a campervan and taking to the open road could be the perfect answer.
So what about you? Have you any ideas about celebrating Valentines Day? Or any other day for that matter?
I know I’m biased but…Campervan trips are very romantic.
There is something really sweet about heading off in a campervan with the one you love.
You get all that time to chat, catch up, listen to music and just really chill together.
We find it our most creative time as there is space to think things through and discuss them as well as time to properly relax.
You can dip in and out of interesting places, decide where to sleep in the afternoon and accept that that decision may change if you end up in a lovely pub somewhere warm and friendly.
There is something very lovely about a romantic getaway in Scotland especially one with a relaxed plan.
Romantic Getaways with Romantic Scenery
Much of the scenery Scotland has to offer is in itself romantic. Evoking a sense of history and a rich geological past. The light is gentle and the colours on the mountains and coastal regions are soft and rich.
Scotland is rich in romantic destinations. From the fishing villages in the East Neuk of Fife like Pittenween and Crail to the University Town of St Andrews. You can enjoy the east coast light, walks of fantastic beaches and eat fish and chips next to the harbours full of fishing boats.
Further north is the village of Pennan made famous by the film Local Hero. A very pretty village with a lovely pub. Head to the North West and visit Plockton, another gem of a village sheltering on the edge of Loch Carron Palm trees and warm water draw visitors all year round.
Taking the road through Glen Coe is a must. Make a stop and take a romantic walk in the majestic glen.
Once you are in the Highlands there really isn’t a bad road. You will meet a feast of views to take your breath away. There will be sign posts to castles, waterfalls, standing stones and beaches to distract you. And you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to places to eat. From home baking, fresh fish and sea food to venison and beef. Scotland also caters well for vegetarians and vegans.
Just you two and a view
A romantic getaway in Scotland is a must. A romantic getaway in Scotland in a Campervan seriously takes the romance up a notch!
Whether you have been together for years or are falling in love, there is no getting away from the fact that spending time together on the open road is a real pleasure.
Being able to stop and make a cuppa, heat up some soup or have a siesta feels deliciously indulgent. Managing the space makes each of you have a task to create your living space. And when you stop for the night you can pop a cork or have a dram and listen to music while you cook for the evening meal.
