Christmas holiday oban sunset

One of the most beautiful sunsets can be found from the town of Oban on the West Coast of Scotland. This is a historic fishing town which is now one of the most popular destinations for tourists looking for that local ‘Scottish’ experience. Shingle beaches line the town and the fishing harbour offer the chance to admire all sorts of sailing boats. The seafood on offer here is AMAZING and many of the restaurants are placed perfectly to admire the evening sunset. Our feature house is a swanky retreat on the waterside: Dail Na Mara | Sleeps 4 | Oban | £580/week


On the eighth day of Christmas my true love sent to me,

8 hours of country walks; 7 sunset vistas; 6 pet friendly houses; 5 day short breaks; 4 waterside retreats; 3 open fires; 2 rooms with a view and a holiday for the whole family!!


Christmas holiday countryside walks

It’s always really exciting when you discover a new place, one where you have never been before, exploration opportunities at your finger tips. Professor’s Cottage near Kinlochewe, Achnasheen, is situated in a spectacular spot, an area well known for its guided walks and mountain trails. Nature, wildlife and scenery surrounds this spectacular house and is all waiting to be enjoyed. The cottage is also ideally situated to explore the West Coast area of Gairloch and being just a short drive away, guests can enjoy glass bottom boat trips and whale watching cruises too. Sleeps 6 | Pet friendly | From £675/week


On the ninth day of Christmas my true love sent to me,

9 whisky trails; 8 hours of country walks; 7 sunset vistas; 6 pet friendly houses; 5 day short breaks; 4 waterside retreats; 3 open fires; 2 rooms with a view and a holiday for the whole family!!


The Malt Whisky trail spans the Moray Speyside region and is the worlds ultimate Scotch experience. It is made up of a collection of distilleries and other whisky sites, all waiting to be discovered and sampled by keen holiday makers. It is an exciting and exhilarating road trip, but equally can be enjoyed in small doses too. A self-catering cottage would give you a relaxing mix of whisky tasting day trips and evenings in with a dram. Discover our holiday homes in the Highlands here.

Built as a shooting lodge in the Glenshee foothills of the Grampian Mountains, Corrydon Lodge has all the charm and grace of a bygone era. With wildlife on the doorstep, including red deer and golden eagles, the nature enthusiast will love this property. Hill walkers can bag a few Munros nearby or the popular highland towns of Braemar and Pitlochry are a short car journey away. It’s a great lodge for a group of friends.

Life is what you make it and fun comes from within. You can make any situation/occasion/moment fun and that is what going on holiday is all about. We go on holiday to escape, experience and find joy in new places. We go on holiday to re-connect with our loved ones or get that space we all occasionally need. Having fun and making memories is so important, because it is those that we take with us when we are old. Come make memories with Cottages & Castles, stay in amazing places, try new things and have FUN!
