Enter this spacious property and head straight for the heart of the house, the kitchen. Stylish and modern appliances and units offer an excellent space to cook for eight throughout your stay, and a central island provides a great space to have morning coffee or sit and keep the cook company. The large dining table can be found right here in the kitchen and boasts plenty of space for a family meal. Adults and kids may want to split up after tea, and two lounge areas make this a possibility. Retreat into the lounge to enjoy a glass of whisky in front of the open fire or settle onto the L-shaped sofa in the TV room to watch a DVD or Sky TV.

The first of four bedrooms can be found here on the ground floor, ideally suited to older guests.

The master bedroom is set out as a luxury suite, featuring contemporary en-suite and private balcony, perfect for enjoying a romantic evening drink. All bedrooms in the property are versatile zip-and-link beds, meaning they function as king-size or twin rooms. Each bedroom also boasts its own private bathroom, cutting down the time it takes to get ready in the morning by a significant amount.

To the rear of the property, you’ll find a spacious stone patio. The local properties have been set out to ensure absolute privacy from one another, and the enclosed patio makes an excellent space for children to play.

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.
