For a morning stroll, pick up a takeaway coffee and venture into Holyrood Park, which boasts dramatic hills and crags. Most famously, the park is home to Arthur’s Seat (1.5 miles), the remains of a volcano and human activity dating as far back as 5000 BC. A climb to the top of the peak is always rewarded by panoramic views of Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Beyond Edinburgh itself lies a multitude of things to see and do, from a trip to the award-winning Portobello Beach (3 miles), to a visit to the birthplace of James V and his daughter Mary Queen of Scots, Linlithgow (20.5 miles), or even a day trip to the Cairngorms National Park (78 miles).

The flat was very bright, clean and comfortable. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the bottom of the Royal Mile and there are also loads of buses to take you into the town if you don't want to walk. Having a parking space is definitely a bonus. It is first come first served so no reserved spaces. The flat is well equipped with washing machine and Read moredishwasher and Mr and Mrs Quinn left us with a lovely "starter pack" including the essentials, bread,milk orange juice and coffee. 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.
