October half-term holiday cottages in Scotland

October half term is a great time of year to escape to Scotland before the winter draws in. Why not stay in a self-catering cottage or castle during your stay? We have a fantastic collection of Scotland cottages for the whole family to enjoy during October half-term breaks in Scotland. October half term is the first school holiday period after the summer and the last before Christmas making it the best last chance to escape with the kids before the dark nights draw in until the spring. Head to the Highlands or the Cairngorms to go mountain and forest walking, hunt for Nessie at Loch Ness, or do some serious Christmas shopping in Edinburgh or Glasgow. The choice of activities throughout October is endless. Scotland covers a wide spectrum of tastes and hobbies, so you won’t be short of choice; many cities and attractions have Halloween activities to keep the kids entertained, or the crisp leaves underfoot provide nature’s carpet for an autumnal stroll, as the breathtaking landscape serves as a picture-perfect backdrop.

October is a lovely time of year to go on holiday. The summer crowds have dispersed and the beaches, visitor attractions and motorways are quieter, making Scotland the perfect place to enjoy an autumn holiday with the children in a cosy family-friendly holiday cottage or castle. We have an abundance of properties with log burners to keep the chill at bay, cosy cottages with welcoming local pubs nearby if the autumnal weather takes a turn, and some Scottish hot tub breaks for that added touch of luxury. No matter what you decide to get up to on your half-term holiday, you can rest assured that at the end of each day you will be returning to a beautiful property to relax and revel in.
