With just under a month until Valentine's Day, you might still be wondering what to do or where to go. This Valentine's Day why not go for something a bit different and surprise your special someone with a road trip in a VW camper van? Scotland has atmospheric scenery and fairytale castles, perfect for escaping to on a cosy romantic getaway. The hardest part is deciding which of the stunning locations to visit, so here's a few to get you started...
The Hermitage is perfect for a romantic stroll, with Ossian's Cave and Black Lin Falls definite places to visit. If you aren't running short of time, Birnam and Dunkeld are great places to take your camper van and have a wander around. The Cathedral, Loch of the Lowes and the Birnam Oak trail are places that shouldn't be missed, with the latter having an extremely old tree that lies in a rather Shakespearean stretch of land alongside the river.
There are plenty of things to do in Peebles while on a romantic getaway. Take a walk beside the river Tweed to Neidpath Castle, or you could hike Cademuir Hill and admire the landscape whilst standing on a couple of ruined hill forts. If you're not feeling that adventurous and want to do something different with your significant other, why not drive to Innerleithen in your camper van and have a go at printing at Robert Smail's Printing Works?
Travel in a camper van to Loch Lomond, which offers magnificent views, walks against a mountain backdrop and has romantic atmosphere in abundance. If you and your partner enjoy the outdoors, then kayaking or paddleboarding on the serene water is the perfect day out. For those who prefer long walks, head uphill to Ben Lomond or Conic Hill for picturesque views over the loch but if you want an easier trail, forest walks through Cashel or Sallochy are good options.
