Autumn holiday destination in the Scottish countryside.

Rural Autumn Breaks 

Autumn is a wonderful time to holiday in Scotland as the landscape transforms into a blaze of rusty hues. Crisp mornings, breath-taking scenery and dark star-filled nights are just a taste of what to expect. As tourist season peels off, there is a quiet calm around the resort, giving you a chance to re-charge and come together with the important people in your life. 

October Highlights

The nights are longer and the skies are darker, creating the opportune time for star-gazing. Mills Observatory is a unique public observatory in the centre of Dundee where you can delve into the universe and explore stars and planets through telescopes.


Those who want to take it easy can view the skies from the resort and sit out on the lodge balcony or patio to take in the sea of stars above – the resort’s countryside location lends itself to stargazing, with an extensive span of open sky. You might even catch the Aurora Lights.

Country walks in October are enchanting, with warm amber colours and picturesque views. It is also a chance to spot wildlife. Thousands of pink footed and greylag geese return from their breeding grounds in the artic. You can see them in the evening at Monikie and Crombie park.


Sit out on our veranda with a blanket by the fire or snuggle up with a whisky in one of our lodges with log burners. Get outdoors and try sea kayaking at Broughty Ferry on the Firth of Tay with Outdoor Explore or learn about the spooky history of Dundee on a Ghost tour with Dark Dundee. Catch a film at Chalmers Filmhouse in Arbroath which has a super relaxed atmosphere with comfy sofas and mugs of tea. There is something for everyone in Scotland in Autumn.
