Located in Skye’s north-west peninsula of Waternish, Hallin is a fantastic little community. One of the three ‘fingers’ of land that forms the northern coastline of Skye, Waternish enjoys a spectacular outlook to the Western Isles and the Outer Hebrides. Ideal walking country, magnificent views and fascinating history lie around every corner. After a trip to Coral Beach (14.5 miles), stroll into the charming fishing village of Stein (2.5 miles), home to pretty little cottages,a famous seafood restaurant and the oldest inn on the island. Here you can also enjoy many cliff-top walks with plenty of wildlife spotting potential for nature lovers.

Stein is also home to a diving centre for adventurous types amongst you, while those who prefer to stay at the surface shouldn’t miss a visit to the vibrant blue and green swimmable Fairy Pools at Glenbrittle (31 miles). Crystal clear and reached by a 1.5-mile hike from the car park, the pools are surrounded by rocky mountains and are best visited early in the day to beat fellow tourists. Neist Point Lighthouse (21 miles) is often referred to as one of Scotland's most beautiful lighthouses. Located at the end of an easy concrete walk, it offers jaw-dropping views across the Minch to the Western Isles and is best visited at sunset. Another famous landmark is the Old Man of Storr (30 miles), a magnificent pinnacle of rock that is visible for miles around and was formed by a combination of ancient lava flows and landslides. After your long walk to the Old Man of Storr, pop into the quaint village of Portree (23 miles), which is home to charming cafes, supermarkets, hotels and design stores.

Stayed 5 days at 11 Hallin with our 2 kids (6&9yo). Could say we were overwhelmed by the glorious views, the great nearby walks and the cosy yet practical cottage, but, the best prove of the fact that we had a truly great holiday is that during those 5 days, the tv didn't play for one second. We highly recommend 11 Hallin. Tip 1: Waternish is at thRead moree end of the world, so bring enough food with you and don't forget to fill up your gas tank. No nearby shops or tankstation. Tip 2: do the Gillen-shore walk + Trumpan walk. Breathtaking! Tip 3: Visit Coral Beach. It's amazing. Hide

Cabin had beautiful views of the seas. Inside little rustic but nice enough for a few days to see Skye. Rather remote area but parking wasn't a problem and all on the ground floor.

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.
