Sometimes we’d like to cosy up with our partner in splendid isolation, just the two of us, in which case, The Lazybed and The Batbox, self-contained micro-lodgings near Inverkircaig in the heart of magnificent Assynt on the North-West coast of Sutherland, will more than deliver.
Arrive, unpack, relax, and retreat into your perfect romantic escape. Tucked among the trees, with stunning views, ample decking and, of course, log-burning stoves for warmth and cosiness, you’ll be in your element, secluded among the elements.
But if your heart’s desire is for time together in the company of others, relax into the comfort of the boutique Kylesku Hotel. This peaceful haven oozes charm and luxury, and you can decide how much, if at all, to interact with the outside world. Although you’ll definitely want to dine; their menu offers ultra-local Scottish produce, carefully crafted into mouth-watering dishes to tempt your palate.
Wrap up in warm woollen blankets, and immerse yourselves in each other, in the splendour of this wonderful location in the Scottish Highlands. Enjoy wildlife from your window, walk and explore the breathtakingly beautiful surroundings, and enjoy the soft west-coast light and stunning romantic sunsets, this is a photographer’s paradise.
Get out onto the water for wildlife trips and sunset boat cruises with North Sea Coast Tours, or just lace up your boots and take to the hills, these mountains are some of the most astonishingly beautiful in the world. Quinag and Ben More Assynt are only a short distance from the hotel, or if you’d prefer to explore lower down the Inchnadamph Bone Caves and Ardvreck Castle have a wonder of stories to tell. That’s not even mentioning all the idyllic white sandy beaches that are scattered almost carelessly around the Sutherland coast.
Retreat, enjoy, rediscover this corner of the Highlands. Rediscover each other. There’s space, time, and the freedom to explore on your perfect romantic getaway.
