The hermitage in scotland

 

Autumn 2015 has been pretty awesome so far, in our opinion at least. We’ve had the last of the Indian weather, an amazing Blood Moon and some absolutely cracking views of the Northern Lights up and down the country. The fun isn’t over yet however! If your adventurous appetites have been whetted and your feet are itching to get out and about, why not check out some of the awesome things you can get up to in Scotland this Fall season.

Tickle your tastebuds and go whisky tasting on tour: Personally we can’t think of a better season to take a tour around some of Scotland’s most famous distilleries, warm inside and cold outside, before curling up in front of a roaring fire with a dram or two contemplating going for a walk through the crunchy leaves. Depending on your schedule you could make a mini tour of it and enjoy the drive through the countryside between all the fantastic distilleries.

Get shooting out in the forests: Another great way to get back to nature and take up a new sport at the same time is Forest Archery. Why not put a weekend to good use this autumn and try your hand stalking the forests with a bow and arrow, testing your wits against mother nature.

Take advantage of the fresh air on the West Highland Way: Get out and about and see the beauty of the countryside with your own eyes on one of Scotland’s many long distance walking trails. We guarantee that you’ll have worked up an appetite by the time you get back to your cosy abode!

Get into the holiday mood with a visit to the Enchanted ForestPerhaps we’re biased but we think the light and sound show put on each autumn in the Enchanted forest in pretty much one of the most beautiful, magical sights that you’ll see all fall. Go for a night and experience the magic and wonder of nature coming alive around you: great for first dates!

Head for a cruise around the Isles: The west coast of Scotland is one of the best places for sailing and cruising in the UK. Why not head out on an expedition and see the beauty of the changing colours up close from the water – plus, you never know what sealife you might encounter!

Stargaze at Europe’s first Dark Sky Park: Scotland has some of the darkest skies in Europe, and nowhere more so that the Dark Sky Park in Dumfries and Galloway. Over 7,000 stars and planets are visible with the naked eye from the Forest Park, and the bright band of the Milky Way is usually easy to see arching across the sky. There’s a new show every night because, as we travel round the sun, we’re getting a constantly changing view of the stars. Which seasonal celestial displays will you spot?
