This well-presented property with splendid views, offers cosy country living with 21st century comfort. Nestled in a peaceful, tranquil setting, adjoined to the delightful owner’s house, yet complete privacy is assured during your stay.

Set amongst seemingly endless gardens and pretty woodland, this adorable single-storey cottage is the perfect spot to holiday in the heart of the Highlands. The home is adjacent to the owner’s main house yet offers undisturbed privacy in a secluded location, making it an idyllic getaway for a group of four friends or two couples holidaying together. Throughout your stay you can enjoy some beautiful coastal spots or delve into the Cairngorms National Park.

 

This cottage has been kept simple and homely, creating an instantly welcoming atmosphere. The colour scheme is primarily neutral shades, leaving a blank canvas for you to enjoy the bright colours of nature blossoming through the windows.

A simple yet well-equipped kitchen can be found to the opposite side of the room, an ideal place for preparing breakfast or a packed lunch for the day ahead. Dine together on an evening before collapsing into one of the comfy sofas or armchairs to get lost in a TV program. Two bedrooms complete this floor. One is a spacious double and the other is a roomy twin, both boasting en-suite bathrooms.

 

This pretty home is brought to life by its vast surrounding gardens. Four acres of lawn and woodlands are there for you to explore, and you can get together in the pretty summer house for early evening drinks. Heading from garden to woodland, follow the stream and cross the picturesque wooden bridge, like something plucked from a fairy tale.

You won't find yourself short of things to see and do in this remarkable Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and you can easily lose yourself in an afternoon of wildlife spotting or an evening's stargazing. For the chance to see a wonderful pod of dolphins, head to the local seaside town of Nairn (10 miles) and embark on a dolphin-spotting boat tour.

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.

Find yourself at the brink of the Cairngorms National Park within 13 miles, and head to the quaint town of Grantown-on-Spey (16 miles). 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.

Wonderful accommodation, exceptionally clean and maintained. 5* from us, couldn't fault it. Dishwasher was an added bonus! The gents loved the leather chairs. Beds super comfortable and 2 x en-suite with TVs excellent. Weather was lovely although surprisingly we wanted rain as the fishing on the Findhorn was non- existent due to a lack of rain.

What a lovely place to stay - and the host was a fund of great information. Lots to do near the house, or a short car trip away and you can walk straight from the house.

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.
