Cosy living rooms for Autumn/Winter – Scotland
Autumn in Scotland is fully upon us. The trees are turning that beautiful orange/red, the nights are closing in and that cold weather is on its way. You will be looking for cosy living rooms to warm up in!
This time of year can be a bit gloomy for some because Summer is over, the holidays are past and unless you have plans for the October holidays it can be an ‘in between’ period where not much happens. This is a great time of year though, where you should take advantage of the quieter times and get out and do a bit of exploring to avoid the ‘school holiday rush.’
We have sought out some holiday homes with cosy living rooms which are blissful to come back to and relax in after a day of sightseeing and exploring. Sometimes there is nothing nicer than putting your feet up with a blazing open fire crackling in the background. Let us know what you think of these…
‘Ardechive’ is one to watch! Set by the quiet shores of Loch Arkaig and surrounded by dramatic mountains, this enchanting traditional Highland crofter’s cottage has been transformed into a modern, stylish holiday retreat.
Although it has been renovated, many of the original features still remain such as the original thick stone walls and the wood panelling. The lovely large woodburner can keep the living room warm for hours meaning you can relax and warm your toes all night! Check it out.
‘Tirriemore’ is set on the shores of Lochindorb, a hidden loch deep in the moors of the Scottish Highlands. You can be sure to enjoy lots of wildlife around here making this a birdwatchers paradise!
There is also a ruined castle floating on an island on the loch which will interest the history buffs out there. The house itself is really modern and luxurious inside with its cool, open plan layout and plush furnishings. The snug is where you will want to go for that cosy evening in, relax on the ‘so good you could sink’ sofas with the sound of a crackling fire.
‘Little Gannochy’ is a hidden gem in Aberdeenshire. This traditional stone-built former estate office has been turned into a charming holiday home filled with only the best of everything.
The whole home exudes quality and the décor fuses traditional with modern comforts with something to look at in every corner. The living room has a lovely open fire which can provide heat through to the sun room and dining room which are both attached. Take a look today!
‘Vicarsford Farmhouse’ is a simply lovely Fife farmhouse set amidst the fields of a farm and very near to one of Fife’s best and hidden away beaches.
It is extremely well presented with big bright rooms, lovely rural views and a subtle luxury throughout. Families will love the games room with pool table and the garage with table tennis! The very large sitting room offers a peaceful place to unwind in the evening, and there is even a TV/snug which gives marvellous room for everyone. Take a look.
‘Oldtown Cottage’ boasts amazing views out over Loch Brora and the cottage itself is surrounded by woodland and hills which can all be seen and enjoyed from the sunroom on the front.
The living room will most likely become the social hub of the house with its comfortable sofas, shelves of books, cute little TV and a roaring open fire. This is a fantastic place from which to explore the North of Scotland with its rugged coastline, sprawling beaches and dramatic mountains.
‘The Ardross Residence’ is a top floor apartment located in the heart of Inverness, the capital of the Highlands. We wanted to include this one to show the variety of properties we have.
We are really proud of this cute modern apartment and it books out really well, so make sure you don’t miss your chance. A special feature of this property is the large window in the living room, offering spectacular views of the river and cathedral next door – you may even see a wedding or two during your stay! You could sit here for hours on end watching the world go by, or keep yourself amused by becoming engrossed in a board game or a good book. A really cosy corner!
