6 Incredibly Romantic Gift Ideas for the Perfect Valentine’s Day
There is no mistaking Valentine’s Day feels a little different for all of us this year. Valentine’s shopping is even more tricky with the addition of the lockdown and the closure of non-essential shops. So we’ve compiled some of our favourite ideas for that all-important romantic gift we would be (really) happy to receive. Each of our gifts and experiences are unique, memorable and delivered in a beautifully romantic, historical setting.
Be it an indulgent spa treat they can enjoy themselves or a memorable activity you can experience together, the best Valentine’s Day gifts are always those you’ve put time and thought into. You are sure to find something your favourite person will just love, even if that’s you! There’s something for everyone, no matter your budget.
Step into history with your loved one. Enjoy an overnight break inclusive of a three course dinner in the Dungeon Restaurant and then go for gold with a tutored archery session in the grounds of Scotland’s oldest inhabited castle. Using beautifully crafted recurve bows which are suitable for archers of all skill and strength levels you’ll benefit from a variety of different targets to shoot at upon your request, from the classic “bullseye” target to balloons or games such as darts or tic-tac-toe. You’ll stay in a one-of-a-kind bedroom, dine in the award-winning 2 AA rosette Dungeon Restaurant and wake refreshed to a full Scottish breakfast.
Sweep your Valentine off their feet with a romantic getaway where you can celebrate once lockdown ends. Enjoy an indulgent dinner, bed and breakfast break and get hands on with hawks, owls, falcons and eagles under the expert supervision of trained falconers for an ornithological experience like no other. Get up close and within talon reach to these magnificient Birds of Prey whilst learning the differences in both flight and nature between the Owls and Raptors whilst also gaining a “hands-on” experience of a life time!The Hawk will fly free and will follow you wherever you walk, swooping back onto the fist when called; the Owl will fly gracefully from arranged perches and trees to your fist. You’ll stay in a one-of-a-kind bedroom, dine in the award-winning Restaurant and wake refreshed to a full Scottish breakfast.
Show someone you’re thinking of them. Experience a quintessentially British tradition with a classic afternoon tea at Dalhousie Castle. Taking Afternoon Tea at Dalhousie Castle is a top-drawer affair.

Why not up the game and whisk the other half away for some serious pampering. Escape to the Aqueous Spa at Dalhousie Castle and enjoy a 60-minute spa treatment of your choice.
