An Cos: A Romantic Getaway in Northwest Scotland

It’s easy to head over to Laterooms or Groupon to grab a booking of your run-of-the-mill city break and while they’re fun in their own right, they’re not exactly unique, are they? Your holiday photos can be added to a plethora of similar snaps found on your Facebook feed, your memories will be ‘nice’ but not overly memorable, nor will you feel like you’re doing anything truly out of the ordinary.


If you’re looking for a romantic getaway that will leave you rejuvenated in luxury, basking in the delights of tranquil village life, and feeling like you’re one of the few people in the world, then An Cos is the perfect option. It will be like nothing you’ve ever done before – we promise.

Spectacular Mountain Scenery

The location is absolutely beautiful – there’s nothing better than waking up in the morning and seeing Loch Shieldaig with the Torridon Mountains as stunning backdrop. In terms of scenery, Scotland doesn’t have many places that could claim to be superior.

You don’t have to limit yourself to watching the beauty from indoors, however. There are plenty of ways in which you can enjoy them from up close and personal – whether it’s sailing in the loch, taking a bike tour around the mountains, or a guided mountain climbing tour, there are plenty of possibilities.

Romantic Outdoor Walks

Walk hand in hand along some of the most romantic paths in Scotland. Shieldaig has several routes that will offer stunning views, a chance to check out the local wildlife, and just absorb nature in all its glory – if you’re a fan of walking in the great outdoors, the surrounding area will feel like you’ve landed in heaven.

There are routes sprinkled around the area that cater to several levels of experience. Whether you’re a beginner who enjoys a casual stroll or a serious rambler with a competitive streak, Shieldaig won’t exclude you or leave you wanting by any stretch of the imagination.

Cosy Nights In

An Cos could have rested on the laurels of Shieldaig and the surrounding areas (you could stay in an old tent and still have a great time!), but the owners have spared no expense in making a cosy night in one of the most satisfying experiences of your stay.


An Cos: The Lounge at Night

With roaring log fires in the lounge and master bedroom (as well as underfloor heating) you’ll be very snug and cosy, whatever the weather. Enjoy a glass of champagne will snuggled up on the sofa, or drift off to sleep while watching a film.

Remote Luxury Holiday

Even though you’d almost feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere, that doesn’t mean you have to go below your usual standards. Remote doesn’t necessarily equal backward or lacking!


The road to Kinlochewe

With quality Egyptian bed linen and mattress toppers you’ll probably not want to get out of bed. Luxury white fluffy towels and complimentary Arran Aromatics toiletries adding a further rejuvenating flourish to a luxurious stay. An Cos provides luxury that you’ll be hard pressed to find in your average 5-star hotel. Log fires that roar with the best of them, granite steam room for intense relaxation, as well as panoramic views that will leave you thinking you’re in a theatre.
