Scotland is as a country in its own right an absolute mecca for romantic types. Surrounded on all sides by incredible natural beauty and with world-class amenities at your fingertips, it’s the kind of place where couples can escape the trappings and the pressure of the real world for a day, a week or as long as they can get away with!
We’re often asked what it is about Dunblane that makes it such a special place, to which we always answer it’s something you just have to feel. It’s not until you’ve taken a stroll around the town itself that you’ll begin to understand why we have such pride in the place, though suffice to say your first visit will not be your only visit!
So, if you’re planning to head out to our Dunblane hotel for a romantic couple’s trip, what kinds of activities and entertainment amenities are on offer?
Well, first of all there’s so much to be said for heading out into the heart of the town with absolutely nothing to do, no planned route and no sense of time whatsoever. The traditional architecture and wonderfully historic streets of Dunblane will light a fire in your heart and soul, setting you and your other half up for what’s guaranteed to be a blissfully beautiful stay at our Perthshire hotel. Or perhaps head a little further afield with the hugely popular Darn Road walk. A wonderfully tranquil four-mile route, you’ll be taken along the banks of Allan Water to finish at the historic Bridge of Allan. Wherever you head, you’ll understand the Dunblane charm a little more with every step you take!
If you’d like to take in a little more of the stunning surroundings, hop in the car and head for Duke’s Pass – widely regarded and one of the finest drives in the whole of the UK. Stretching a gentle seven miles in length, you’ll experience the beauty of an estate that’s been attracting discerning travellers since Victorian times. And just to round off the day in pure bliss, why not combine your drive with a gentle cruise on the beautifully still waters of Loch Katrine?
Drumbrae Riding Centre
Located just a couple of miles from the centre of Dunblane, here’s the place to head to make those fairy-tale dreams of pony-trekking in an idyllic paradise come true right before your eyes. There’s really nothing more romantic than being led through nature’s most awe-inspiring wonders on the back a beautiful horse, all under the watch of a professional guide and handler. Book a wonderful day out in advance and surprise that special someone with a hopelessly romantic sentiment they’re never likely to forget.
