The villages of Duror and Kentallen are located just off the Argyll Coastal Route from Balluchulish in the north and Oban in the south. This property is located close to the shores of the breathtaking Loch Linnhe, where you can take part in a number of activities, such as kayaking, fishing and sailing. It is also popular with photographers because of its varied wildlife, such as seals, porpoises and golden eagles, and magnificent scenery and sunsets.

Keen cyclists will enjoy the Kentallen to Ballachulish cycle path which is part of the National Cycle Network. Or for those looking for something more leisurely, the pebble beach of Cuil Bay is only a short stroll away (1.2 miles) and the views of the mountains are spectacular. If you fancy seeing more of the sea loch, you could even take a cruise and enjoy the commentary. For a touch of history and beauty, either view or visit Castle Stalker (6.5 miles), a 15th Century keep standing proud on its tidal islet in Loch Linnhe (visits are limited and should be pre-booked).

If you fall in love with gorgeous Glencoe, head to the Highlands Titles Nature Reserve (1.5 miles) and bag yourself a small piece of land as a souvenir allowing you to become a Laird, Lord or Lady of Glencoe as well as helping to preserve this special place which is home to lots of wildlife from deer to pine martens.

This property is personally managed by Lucy.

Comfortable, compact apartment in great location. Not for very tall people as its in the roof so low sloping ceilings in the bedroom and bathroom. High spec finish and lovely gardens. WiFi didnt work the week we were there unfortunately.

Reviewed by Owen 1st April 2019

We had very pleasant stay, the attic flat I would not take that again as the ceilings are so low I lost the count of how many times I bumped my head. Also had to kneel down to shower. Would not recommend to anyone near 6ft

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.
