Beautiful house although curtains would be an improvement over the blinds plus blind adjustments loose. Plenty cutlery etc. Kitchen good size. Could do with proper gates especially if you have children or pets due to very busy fast road. All in all a beautiful house.

Had a great week here. The property was in good order and comfortable. Some people have mentioned the railway behind beeing a bit noisy but we hardly noticed it. And it certainly didnt have any affect on our holiday. Didn't go into pitlochry to much but the co-op in town has everything you need and there's a good fish and chip shop just next door.

This house was fairly modern with all the facilities needed to enjoy your stay. The only slight negatives were the main rail track at the back of the garden and the road at the bottom of the front garden. From inside the house the noise from the trains was audible but not overbearing. the main road was fairly quiet but at times there was speeding tRead moreraffic which caused concern when trying to cross. The house garden was described as fully enclosed but there was areas where this wasnt the case. The house did not have wi-fi which i thought in this day and age should have been available for our stay. the positives were the surrounding areas such as Pitlochry, Faskally & Killiekrankie, there was some lovely riverside walks and easy access to the pebble beaches that run along the River. Overall a very enjoyable stay in a beautiful part of Scotland. Hide

Our family spent a week over Christamas at Arrlochaira and loved every minute. The house is warm and cosy and very well equipped with everything needed for a family. The layout allows for everyone to spread out. There are great walks just across the road and the whole area is interesting with lovely places to explore.

This house is lovely and great for families to get together. The kitchen is well equipped and is has one of the best we have used. Having the upstairs lounge is very useful too as we were with elderly parents who went to bed early. The bathrooms are finished to a high standard although the showers arent very powerful. Lovely back garden to sit in, Read moreA bit noisey due to the house being inbetween roads and the railway at the back but this didnt spoil our stay. 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.
