Once there you'll find plenty more to keep guests of all ages entertained. This pretty town has a local museum, a vast sandy beach and two championship golf courses. Whilst in the area, stop off at the local Brodie Castle (9 miles) and tour its beautiful 16th and 17th-century rooms and vast daffodil garden.

This traditional Highlands town is a gateway to enchanting surrounding woodlands, ideal for hiking, biking and watching for local wildlife. The nearby River Spey (16.5 miles) is extremely popular for keen fishermen, and you can spend an afternoon trying to catch an elusive salmon to take home for dinner. For mountain walking, bag a Munro with a trip up the towering Ben Macdui, the base of which is around 30 miles away.

The cottage is very nice & has everything you would need. Everything is very clean & with cake, milk & eggs to welcome us there it was lovely. It's a warm cottage so we didn't need to touch the heating once. The owners where lovely & basically just left us to enjoy our time there but if there was a problem we knew we could go & ask for help. Only tRead moreiny let down was we could here them in their house as the cottage is attached to it. But that being said still a beautiful cottage & lovely grounds. 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.
