Absolute Escapes November 9 2021

As we head towards a brand new year, we’re looking back at some of the blog content you loved in 2021. Take a trip back in time with our most popular posts …


1) 7 Luxurious Places to Stay on the North Coast 500

Perennially one of our most popular self-drive holidays, the North Coast 500 is a fabulous road trip through some of Scotland’s most glorious scenery. Perhaps not surprising after a year of lockdowns and restrictions, 2021 saw a lot of interest from people keen to experience the route while staying in luxury accommodation.

The blog also features The Torridon – an exceptional hotel in Wester Ross that saw a surge in popularity after featuring in BBC’s Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby this year.

2) The Ultimate Guide to Walking the South West Coast Path

Another of our ever-popular holidays, the South West Coast Path is a long-distance walking trail that runs for 630 miles along the magnificent coastline of south west England. With so many different sections, and logistical challenges such as ferries to navigate, our FAQ-style blog proved very popular for those seeking information on the trail.

We’ve been arranging holidays on the Isle of Skye for almost two decades and we published this list of exceptional accommodation on the island based on our first-hand knowledge of the best places to stay.
