A quaint cottage in a wonderful location. We could walk into Pitlochry in under 5 minutes. The views from the front garden are spectacular, along Strathtay. Pitlochry has loads of attractions and offers great food from a number of pubs and restaurants. Live music at some of the pubs and the wonderful theatre provides great entertainment. As we had Read moreour Labrador with us the excellent walks into the hills, forests, lochs and rivers were amazing, and ranged from easy to challenging.

This was my third time in this lovely house which feels like a real home. It is so comfortable and central in the town and has easy access to the nearby shops and transport links. The views from the house are out of this world and the terrace is a delight for sitting out on and having a meal on. The sitting room is comfortable and has a great view Read moreand lots of facilities including wifi and a sound and dvd system. The kitchen is welcoming and well equipped - if you want something you will find it - with a large table. The bathroom has both a bath and shower and is nicely arranged. The main bedroom looks out over the strath and gives a magnificent view for miles - with the two chairs you can happily sit by the window of an evening and enjoy the changing skies - and the bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. There's also a nice smaller bedroom. Pithlochry itself has a variety of attractions - it's worth mentioning the Explorers' Garden (by the Festival Theatre) with its lovely, lovely plants and vistas, and the Pitlochry and Moulin Heritage Centre as well as an interesting little museum at the Atholl Palace. You can go for a run up the valley on the number 87 bus which among other places goes to Blair Castle and Bruar Falls (and House of Bruar). There's also the option of bus or train to lovely Dunkeld with its beautiful cathedral and river and the magnificent Birnam oak on the other side of the river. If you need a touch of city life, there's Perth half an hour by train with good shops and some great museums. Be aware that the steps to the house and the stairs inside could be challenging for anyone with mobility issues. Hide

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.
