  • The Highlands

There are lot of great places you could visit in Scotland, but we want to take the focus away from the main cities for a minute. The Highlands are filled with incredibly beautiful locations and peaceful places to stay. You’ll be able to walk among the wildlife, see fantastic waterfalls and gigantic mountains. If you’re fed up of living the busy life, get to the Highlands and enjoy a weekend-or-two of peace. There’s nothing quite like getting away from it all and enjoying the beauty of Scotland.

  • York

York is a fantastic place to go to if you’re looking for a nice weekend away. It’s not as hustle and bustle as big cities like Manchester and Birmingham are.

We’ve only mentioned four places today, and I could easily mention 40 or possibly even 400!
