Romantic Countryside in Scotland-Suggestions?

Hi,

I am planning a romantic weekend away for me and my husband. We would like to go to Scotland, but we don't want to be in the city at all. I am looking for a great piece of countryside where we can rent a cottage for a weekend and just take in beautiful views....perhaps stroll along the countryside and maybe do some hiking. Basically, we are looking for peace and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle and really touristy sights. Any suggestions are welcome....thanks so much!

PS. We are driving from the East of England.

This agency has some great places in romantically remote locations, such as islands and isolated mainland spots that have no road to them. http://www.unique-cottages.co.uk/home

The Kingdom of Fife[ The Area just north of Edinburgh over the Forth Bridge] has lots of lovely villages along the East Coast all the way up to St Andews and the river Tay. Scottish Borders south of Edinburgh again lots of lovely small towns & villages good walking country.

East Lothian the area directly east of Edinburgh and again lots of lovely small towns & villages and walking either along the coast or Lammermuir hills. If you want a really romantic place to stay have a look at Borthwick Castle about 15 miles south of Edinburgh, Mary Queen of Scots took her lovers here and worth going just for a romantic dinner in the great hall if not a nights stay lot of good walking round about.

Here is where we would have stayed if our friends who came along with us to Scotland would have wanted to part with more of their money: http://www.monachylemhor.com/ .

Another place which I think would be uber romantic is the Hotel adjacent to Three Chimneys and owned by the same people on Skye.

O noticed a log cabin with a four poster bed on this site - www.scotland-inverness.co.uk/holidayparks.htm

other option on the site are scattered across Scotland, each having something special about them.

This is a beautiful place to get away from it all without being in the middle of nowhere - http://www.knockcottage.co.uk/ - but like most self-catering cottages I think they usually only do weekly lets.

Crieff Hydro - http://www.crieffhydro.com/ - has a variety of self-catering cottages which do shorter lets and you can use the hotel facilities as well.
