Scotland is getting really Chic!!

Thank you for taking time to visit this curation of lovely, lovely places in Scotland.

My name is Sarah, and I have a background in events and marketing, having worked in London and Scotland in the arts, music and tourism industries. I now live in Aberdeen with my husband and 2 children.

I first had the idea for this site when I was looking for somewhere really special to stay in the Scottish Highlands. There were sites listing absolutely everything, and then some London based companies listing only a few places. But there didn’t seem to be a comprehensive online directory written and curated in Scotland by someone from Scotland.

So, I created Chic Scotland, and I am so happy and excited to bring it to you.

I love Scotland!

Hopefully you will find the tone of this directory informal, chatty and fun. However, I assure you that this lightness of tone is underpinned by a serious and deep love and passion for Scotland - it’s beauty, natural resources, hospitality, food, drinks and authenticity.

Search for Chic Restaurants and Accommodation, Set in Stunning Scenery

I have been absolutely blown away and astounded by the incredible places I have discovered on my journey of research around this country. I have found fairytale perfect castles, grand estates doing extra-ordinary things, restaurants making the most of our bountiful larder, world class eco retreats, luxury log cabins, insanely beautiful boutique hotels…. To cut to the chase - I’ve seen a LOT of great places. But please trust when I say, I’ve hand picked only THE BEST of what I’ve found.

Quality is key… but they have to have that extra something setting them apart to make the experience very special. A creative edge, super luxe, or the quirky factor.

Host an Event in Scotland

Having worked in the event industry and organized everything from festivals, conferences, parties and award ceremonies to intimate dinners - I also wanted to have an events focus. So, here on the site you can also search for fabulous corporate/wedding venues and suppliers.

Scotland is a fab place for a wedding or event - even if you don’t live here. Think beautiful, un-spoilt scenery at every turn, the warmest hospitality – and history and heritage, character and charm in abundance.

Happy Browsing! And don’t forget to tell them I sent ya’.
