Scotland as a Honeymoon destination
Before going into the details of what to expect at Knockderry House, let us first discuss Scotland as a destination for couples and honeymooners.
As a land steeped in history, culture, and unparalleled beauty, Scotland provides a myriad of romantic experiences that set it apart as an idyllic honeymoon destination. However, as you embark on your first adventure as a married couple, it’s key to pick an area that represents the true beauty of Scotland.

Bordering Loch Lomond and the Trossachs to the east and graced with an array of islands on its west coast, this region is a feast for the senses and is perfect for those couples who love getting outside and adventuring.
Further West of our country house you’ll discover the region known as Argyll & the Isles, which offer countless attractions to explore, from pristine beaches and historic castles to atmospheric woodland walks and exhilarating watersports.
Whether you're interested in a peaceful beach stroll or an epic cycling route, the region's diverse terrain caters to all. Its stunning coastline boasts some of the UK's most biologically diverse marine environments, best experienced through immersive boat trips.
And don’t forget to take some time to delve into the region's extensive history by visiting its numerous castles or the sacred Iona Abbey, the final resting place of 48 ancient Scottish kings.
Finally, no visit to Argyll & the Isles would be complete without sampling the delights of 'Scotland's Whisky Coast'. This region is a haven for whisky enthusiasts, housing 15 world-class distilleries known globally for their exquisite brands.
Whatever type of setting you are after; Scotland is bound to offer it, and the team at Knockderry House will be more than happy to help you plan your activities while you make our comfortable rooms the base for your Scottish Honeymoon adventure.
