Go to sleep under the stars and wake to the peace and quiet of the forest, where the breeze and the bird song and the rustle of the leaves will be the only things to catch your attention.
Hopefully a blast of autumn sunshine will make it to the forest floor and set the scene for a pretty, peaceful break away from the strains of the norm. Where better to reset and restore during these times?
Start looking, and you will find Scotland has an amazing choice of accommodation for those seeking something in a pure natural setting, where simplicity doesn’t forgo luxury and thoughtful, unique touches create a very special experience indeed.
