The lodge was very clean and tidy and very dog friendly the best we have stayed at. And the food at the slaters arms is very very good, and all the staff make you feel at home. I would like to thank Angie scot and staff for making this a very good holiday. Thank you all

The owners were very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent. The lochs and scenery was out of the world. Our dog was made very welcome and she made lots of friends. We'll worth a visit

Reviewed by Duncan 7th June 2019

Comfortable well equipped lodge, ideal for a break with the dogs. Best suited for walkers / explorers looking for a base camp rather than a residential holiday, ideally located for Glen Affric walks. Owners are very helpful and dog lovers, they also own the adjacent pub which is dog friendly and very convenient.

Lovely cottage with fabulous views, situated at the back of the Slaters Arms which has a restaurant with lovely food (highly recommend the shin of beef) and also does takeaways. We were made to feel welcome, good walks from the cottage which was really clean on arrival

We had a lovely stay and the cabin felt like a home from home. Very clean, lovely views and within a short drive of many stunning scenic walks.

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.
