The detail

If you're looking for a get-back-to-nature escape, then this Victorian-era lodge in the Scottish Highlands is perfectly suited. Located in the heart of picturesque Portpatrick, you'll have plenty of glen walks, forests, beaches, lochs, gardens and waterfalls on your doorstep, not to mention a delightful cottage to call home.

Upon arrival, signs of splendour are plentiful at the historic Dunskey Estate, with chimney spires overhead and paving stones underfoot. Your host settles you in with a hearty breakfast and slippers provided, so cosy up in front of the fire and say cheers to old-world grandeur.

We love the fauna and novel palettes that give off an air of elegance from the moment you step over the threshold. Oversized prints consume original walls, while velvet cuddle chairs, antler chandeliers and Suzani-inspired medallions combine for an eclectic aesthetic.

Come evening, head out into the paved garden, light up the firepit for a grilled dinner, and sip bubbles while breathing in the unspoiled, rural air. Outside of your home, Portpatrick's harbour and golf course are a short five-minute walk, while the Dunskey Castle is a twenty-minute stroll up the coast. That's if you'd ever want to venture out beyond this stately sanctuary of pastoral pleasures.

Some of Scotland’s wildest outposts can be found in the beguiling land of Argyll and Bute. It’s where the land juts out into the Atlantic and islands are fringed with white-sand beaches that could be from the pages of a Caribbean holiday brochure.

On the mainland, the historic town of Inverary is home to an ancient castle and jail and the wild countryside sees stone-grey crumbling castles perched on lochsides, rising from rivers and sitting against the heather-clad hills like the backdrop to a romance novel.

Hopping on a ferry to the islands makes for a wonderful day out. Mull’s capital town of Tobermory sees a rainbow of old fishing houses cluster around the harbour. On Iona, you’ll find pristine beaches and a beautiful, ancient abbey sitting by the seashore. While uninhabited Staffa has the ethereal Fingal’s Cave, where the sea plays a lyrical tune against the basalt columns.
