From rugged mountains and tranquil lochs, to coastal views and rolling hillsides, Scotland has a reputation for possessing some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. So, if you’re looking for a unique and memorable setting to create an everlasting memory, then we believe Scotland has plenty to offer.
Here are some suggestions for some of our favourite places to propose:
Arthur’s Seat is an ancient volcano that sits 251m above sea level, giving an outstanding panoramic view of Edinburgh. It is also the highest peak in Edinburgh’s Holyrood Park and is a site of great scientific significance. Many believe its name relates to the legends surrounding King Arthur, and one theory even suggests it could be a possible location for Camelot. Whatever its history, it's guaranteed to be a point of significance for your moment and one that you’ll remember for a lifetime.
Edinburgh Castle is one of the most exciting historic sites in Western Europe and ideal if you’re looking for some old-world charm. Set in the heart of dynamic Edinburgh, its architecture and history are sure to capture your partner’s heart and imagination when you ask them the all-important question.
Calton Hill is one of the most prominent hills in Scotland and is famous for its panoramic views of the vibrant city. It is also an iconic spot with a rich history, such as the National Monument which was inspired by the Parthenon in Athens. A site famous for celebrations such as Hogomany, Calton Hill is a perfect place to return to when you want to relive the magic of your proposal.
Forth Rail Bridge
Forth Rail Bridge is a celebrated Scottish landmark and a milestone in the development of railway civil engineering and the first major structure in Britain to be made of steel. During sunset, the incredible backdrop of the bridge against the heated colours of the sky makes for a picture-perfect moment.

Eilean Donan Castle
Eilean Donan Castle is heralded as Scotland's most beautiful castle, and the site has appeared in countless films including James Bond's The World Is Not Enough. The castle guards a small yet mighty island at the meeting point of three sea lochs on the west coast of Scotland, and overlooks the Isle of Skye. It is without a doubt an incredible fortress that will capture an equally incredible moment.
The Summit of Ben Nevis
Once an active volcano, Ben Nevis translates into ‘mountain with its head in the clouds.’ Begin your ascent to the top and journey the adventure of Ben Nevis before asking the important question when you reach its peak. The incomparable views around you will never be forgotten.
On the Jacobite Steam Train
The Jacobite Steam Train is undoubtedly the greatest railway journey in the world. The route is full of breath-taking and awe-inspiring scenery and starts at Fort William by Ben Nevis, and passes through Glenfinnan where you cross the Glenfinnan viaduct, as it continues on through Arisaig, Mallaig and finishes at Loch Nevis. So many landmark moments give you ample opportunity to ask that special question. It is also especially perfect for Harry Potter fans.
Glen Coe is synonymous with the Scottish Highland image. It is also a magical place to explore and appreciate the magic of Scotland and has become known as the Scottish Grand Canyon. Its incredible scenes and magical incredible waterfall make for the perfect scenic backdrop to your special moment.
Swilcan Bridge at St Andrews
At only eight feet wide and six feet tall, Swilcan Bridge at St. Andrews is among one of the most photographed landmarks in the world. The bridge itself is a small stone crossing on the St Andrews Old Course and the site is revered across the globe, so much so that a replica has been constructed in the World Golf Hall of Fame in Florida. Its Roman-style romanticism makes it a thoughtful spot for your proposal, and its stately surroundings will provide the perfect backdrop to pictures.
From sites of legend to ivy-clad ruins, there is no shortage of breath-taking settings in Scotland to mark your special moment. We’re sure that whichever site you choose, your proposal will possess a grand and romantic backdrop.
