SOME LIKE IT SCOT

the V&A Dundee will open in September
a 15th-century illuminated book of hours

STAR ATTRACTION

September sees the long-awaited opening of the V&A Dundee on the bank of the River Tay. The museum’s spectacular exterior is a nod to the dramatic cliffs found along the coast of eastern Scotland, but it’s a permanent collection focusing on Scottish design that will make it worth the trip, with treasures ranging from a 15th-century illuminated book of hours to a diamond Valkyrie tiara by Cartier. At the heart of the space is a recreation of an oak-panelled tea room designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1907. Vandadundee.org

wild dining with Mad March Hare
Killiehuntly Farmhouse in the Cairngorms
a dish fresh from its kitchen

NORTHERN BITES

Check in to the Killiehuntly Farmhouse & Cottage, a 19th-century estate-turned-hotel in the Cairngorms, for stunning farm-to-table dishes such as wild venison or salt-baked brown trout. To feast alfresco, turn to Amanda Farnese Heath of Mad March Hare, who arranges wild dining experiences around the east of Scotland; events include a candlelit dinner beside a loch on the 18th-century Balgone Estate and a seven-course feast near Tyninghame. Or go foraging with Galloway Wild Foods – trips range from mushroom hunting along the border to gathering seaweed in the Sound of Arisaig.

A ROYAL ROMP

Saoirse Ronan (above) transforms into Scotland’s ill-fated Catholic queen in Josie Rourke’s much-hyped biopic Mary, Queen of Scots, shot at locations such as Blackness Castle in Linlithgow and the wild valleys of Strathdon. Before it hits cinemas this autumn, retrace the Stuart queen’s footsteps through her realm by visiting some of its lesser-known – but no less remarkable – landmarks…

WHISKY GALORE

Whisky is the spirit of the moment, with 10 new Scottish distilleries opening this year alone. Ardnahoe on the Isle of Islay offers stunning views of neighbouring Jura from its floor-to-ceiling glass walls, while the reopening of the much-lauded Port Ellen distillery, after more than 30 years, will be warmly welcomed by single-malt connoisseurs. The Clydeside Distillery in Glasgow, set in a former pump house near Zaha Hadid’s Riverside Museum, was the first to open in the city in more than a century. Ardnahoedistillery.com; Theclydeside.com

the on-board spa

STEAM POWER

With its mahogany-panelled carriages and tartan-clad Edwardian-style furnishings, a trip aboard the Belmond Royal Scotsman has always been the most luxurious way to see the Highlands, with journeys taking in wild glens, pristine lochs and ruined castles. Now, there’s yet another reason to book a cabin: the on-board Bamford Haybarn Spa – the only one of its kind in Britain – where travellers can indulge in a bespoke facial or de-stressing massage.

REMOTE ACCESS

When it opened in 2014, the Hauser & Wirth arts centre in Somerset made the village of Bruton the fashionable crowd’s go-to weekend spot. For their next project, owners Iwan and Manuela Wirth have restored a 19th-century hunting lodge in Braemar, in the Cairngorms. The Fife Arms (above) has 46 rooms by Russell Sage, the interior designer behind the Zetter Townhouse, and a world-class collection of art. Prepare for a deluge of social-media posts when it opens later this year. Thefifearms.com

LOOM-LADEN

Head to Shetland for some of the world’s finest crafts, such as hand-woven tweeds and intricate lace. But the ultimate memento is a Fair Isle sweater, inspiration for designers from Nicolas Ghesquière to Sarah Burton. There are only a handful of traditional producers left, but crofter Mati Ventrillon still makes bespoke knits based on 19thcentury patterns. Be warned – her waiting list can stretch to more than a year. Mativentrillon.co.uk
