Your honeymoon is the most exciting holiday of your life. It may be the only holiday you ever go on where it is allowed, and more so encouraged, that you raise the bar on your budget and treat yourself to the best luxury and extravagance that money can buy. It is the holiday that seals the deal on your wedding and is when your life together begins. But deciding where to go can be a minefield! There is a huge amount of choice, from a diversity of destinations to all sorts of different types of accommodation.
Think of Scotland and many things come to mind - whisky and bagpipes, deep lochs and rugged mountains, historic cities…..It’s true to say that Scotland has all of these things and more. There is no doubt that it’s mysterious, ancient and breathtakingly beautiful - this part of the UK has something for everyone. Lovers of mother nature will be in heaven - from the unspoilt splendour of the Cairngorms peaks and the Trossach mountains, to the wilderness of the Outer Hebrides, the shorts of Loch Ness and the sandy beaches of the Isle of Skye. If you’re a fan of the great outdoors, then there is no better place - golf, fishing, hiking, biking and endless adventure pursuits are all in plentiful supply. If you want to visit a distillery, explore castles, scale mountains or swim in sea lochs, then there’s no doubt that Scotland is the place to do it, it’s simply a question of which region to explore first.

It wasn’t long after turning off the M6 that familiar cityscapes turned to patchwork-quilt fields, wide valley floors, quaint villages with thriving pubs and fields of bleating lambs. Criss-crossing from the Staffordshire Moors into the Derbyshire Dales looked literally taken from a film set: it’s no wonder the landscape was chosen as the filming location for Peak Practice, a popular, nineties TV Drama. The series was based in the village of Longnor, our home for a few days’ walking based from Jack’s Cottage.
