Enjoy being just 3 miles from the lively Scottish town of Kelso. Discover more about its long history as you wander its pretty streets and shop in the handsome market square. Cross the arched bridge, upon which London's Waterloo Bridge is said to be based, and stroll through the ruins of Kelso Abbey. This dates back to the 1100s and was one of Scotland's largest religious houses. Also well worth a visit is Floors Castle, just over 4.5 miles from your cottage. This embodies a wealth of history too and is set in beautiful grounds, including exquisite gardens and areas of woodland.

Keen golfers may wish to play a round or two at Kelso Golf Club, while those keen to walk during their holiday can lace up their boots and head off in almost any direction. Amble through the Cheviot Hills, with a wealth of rivers and waterfalls, as you look out for all sorts of wildlife. Embark upon a section of the 268-mile long Pennine Way, for example, which runs north and south, and crosses the border between England and Scotland. You might also wish to attempt part of St Cuthbert's Way, a shorter, 62.5-mile trail, which takes walkers through some spectacular landscapes and provides as much or little challenge as you require.

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.
