Inspired by Burns Night – Our Favourite Scottish Getaways

24 January 2020

BurnsNight is a celebration of the life and poetry of Robert Burns, otherwise knownas the Scottish Bard. 
Agreat excuse to eat, drink and be merry (and don’t we all need that inJanuary?), the evening is usually peppered with bagpipes, laughter, haggis…anddram after warming dram of fine Scotch whisky.
So,if you’re going to indulge, why not do it in style, and celebrate in BonnieScotland itself? A country characterisedby sparkling lochs, rolling green countryside, and unrivalled hospitality, youcan be sure of a memorable time.
So inspired by Burns Night, here are some of our favourite places tostay, North of the Border.
