Its practically on our doorstep and the perfect getaway for a family or a romantic break for two. It's definitely given me some food for thought about planning our next holiday. I am wooed by the thought of the early Autumn weather, warm but with a bit of that cooling breeze thrown in. When I think about Scotland I think of the vastness of rolling countryside, the beauty in open space to think and refresh. The quiet stillness away from the business of life, to rekindle and revive - no wonder so many people refer to it as romantic. Its vastness and varied landscape seems almost mysterious when I think about it, a place to forget whats gone before and enjoy the time you have there- the perfect recipe for romance.

Scotland seems to have a little bit of everything to suit everyones tastes and for me thats part of its attraction; the quiet countryside retreat, the bustling city with nightlife, michelin dining, whisky tours, incredible wildlife, historic buildings and intrigue, castles a plenty and home grown fresh food. Whats not to like?
When I think about what I love about Scotland its like being drawn into my very own novel. The perfect setting for my own mini-break version of pride and prejudice, the perfect backdrop and incredibly beautiful countryside to play out my own romantic adventure (that might be where the steam train comes in). Its almost like a secret garden that we have forgotten about just waiting for us to remember and re-discover it in all its beauty but still wowed by the wild treasures we wouldn't see anywhere else. Its so close and yet when was the last time we visited?
