Beautiful Beauly is known for its scenic setting and numerous walks around and from the village. Take a circular 5.5-mile walk on the heights above Beauly and look down upon the peaceful stretch of water of Loch nam Bonnach. Explore the ruins of Beauly Priory, once a church of a little-known order of monks and now with links to the Outlander book and TV series. Go fishing in the River Beauly, said to be one of the best Scottish salmon rivers.

Otherwise, drive just over 13.5 miles to the city of Inverness to browse in the Victorian Market and other shopping areas; make sure you visit the castle and St Andrew's Cathedral, while you are here. Venture some 12 miles to Drumnadrochit by Loch Ness where you can spend time at the famous Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition or buy a ticket to head out on to the water yourself to see if you can spot anything mysterious. Stop at Nessieland to explore its caves and visit the adventure playground. Striking Urquhart Castle, almost 17 miles from your base, is also close by and is well worth a trip. These beautiful ruins sit on a rocky promontory, overlooking out over the loch and embodying centuries of history. Head up to the battlements and pause to gaze down into the prison area.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
