Auberge Carnish, Outer Hebrides, U.K.
With the emerald hills of Scotland at its back and the turquoise sea at its front, this serene five-room cottage hotel on the Isle of Lewis draws hikers, sailors, surfers, and divers. Reclaimed merbau hardwoods and bath products of local lavender and Hebridean seaweed bring the outside in. Guests gather by the lounge’s wood-burning fireplace or recap the day’s adventures over fig and walnut pudding at dinner.
Cost: From $175.
Don’t Miss: Take an early morning stroll on one of the 20 nearby beaches and try to spot the area’s playful sea otters.
