The merest mention of a season will evoke special memories for everyone and autumn, no doubt, will do just the same. That point when the heating needs to be turned back on and your sandals are banished to the back of the wardrobe for another year to be replaced by gloves and scarves and walking means rosy cheeks and kicking up the fallen leaves.

And Scotland is just the place to create memories of all things autumn. With vast national parks dedicated to celebrating the impressive and imposing scenery of the mountains and lochs, where else could you think to lose yourself for a few days?

Every shade of red, amber, russet, golds are knitted together in a patchwork of woodlands and hillsides with stitching of mosses and lichens of greens and browns juxtaposed with the dark, imposing lochs that will play tricks on your eyes and have you believing the myths and legends of yesteryear.

If it’s wildlife you’re after, then Scotland in autumn is a thing of wonder. Whether you want to explore from land or water, the wildlife is in abundance; Scotland in autumn gives visitors the opportunity to spot golden eagles, red kites and the rarer gyr falcons soaring against the striking sky or majestic marine mammals such as seals, various dolphin species and minke whales playing in the waves. Walking, cycling, yachting or kayaking, you can do it all in Scotland.

They say the best thing about memories is making them and what better place to start than a stay at this magnificent baronial castle in Argyllshire (004b).
