Win a weekend in the Scottish Highlands.

always want what you can’t have. And we’re craving escapism.
We’re talking about switching off from the notifications playing
jack-in-a-box on our home screens and, instead, exploring a
far-flung, fantastical mountainscape with wild abandon.

Luckily for you (and a friend), we’ve knocked heads with
Newhall Mains and curated an action-packed weekend in
the Scottish Highlands so you can be in with a chance of doing just
that when we’re allowed out and about again.

Set on the Black Isle peninsula, the 18th-century Newhall Mains
estate – your base for two nights – was on the brink of disrepair
before it was sympathetically restored and beautifully reimagined.
Drawing on the skills of Highland-based craftsmen, it marries
traditional materials with modern comforts: bones of stone, lead
and slate give way to airy suites decked out with bold-print
wallpaper, underfloor heating and the kind of bespoke furnishings
that wouldn’t look out of place in The World of Interiors.

You’ll wake in one of five individually themed cottages, where a
larder is stuffed with locally sourced breakfast fodder – the
perfect fuel for hikes on the moors or dolphin-watching at nearby
Cromarty Firth. It’s tiring stuff, all that exploring. Come
evening, enjoy a three-course meal (and wine) delivered straight to
your door. All the flavour, none of the formality.

In the spirit of doing anything but “stay home”, you’ll spread
your wings on a scenic flight that departs from Newhall’s private
runway, natch. Write to us if you spot Nessie as you soar over her
eponymous loch.

On the ground, hit the gas in a Land Rover Defender, the 4×4
that’s as ruggedly beautiful as the nearby Moray Coast. It’s yours
for the weekend, so get out and explore. The lesser-travelled North
Coast 500 – Scotland’s answer to Route 66 – is on your

Not taste enough of the Highlands for you? We’ve arranged a
fiery whisky tour at a local distillery.
