If you want to elope somewhere beautiful and completely breath taking, then there is nowhere else in the world you could wish to do so than here…. You can use the beauty of nature as your venue. You really can’t beat the mountains that are overlooking the sea and when the fog rolls in it just makes everything so much more dramatic. Is there anything more intoxicating than the idea of eloping? The act of stripping everything back to what truly matters… You and your beloved, your promises, your passion is superbly simple but romantic, and these elopements will certainly leave you weak at the knees. Get ready to exhale as we share some incredibly stylish and utterly adorable couples who decided to elope to “Bonny Scotland”.

“If you are deliberating over whether or not to elope or if you ever wondered what eloping actually involves… When you only have eyes for each other, which is just as it should be, and look breath taking against the beautiful backdrop of the Scottish Mountains… First things first, Scotland is a land of mountains and lochs.Many of the most beautiful locations in the world are here, but remember… The weather in this part of the country can be completely different to what you find in other parts of the UK andit’s not uncommon to have 4 seasons in one day. But not to worry, that cosy log fire roaring in our Summerhouse, that is so much more inviting after your wedding meal served in our spectacular famous Treehouse… If you are brave and want to escape from the large traditional weddings, then why not elope to the beautifulLodge on Loch Goil, a little piece of heaven…”
