The house is great for a family gathering. We had 14 staying .It has plenty space if you want to be on your own, or space where you can all sit around and play games. Kitchen a good size with plenty of pots pans etc. Bedrooms are clean and decent size but there is only two showers. The place is rather tired ,paint falling off walls , windows wont oRead morepen,cracked plates in kithchen but it certainly is a place where you can feel relaxed and not be frightened about where you sit or where the dogs go. The view outside from the front is gorgeous. Great gardens(which needed a lawnmower). It was just a pity that you have no garden furniture to sit on. At the back of the house there are several other small cottages all occupied. You have a stables next door which is great for the kids to watch and unfortunately also a repair garage which means cars are coming and going all the time plus a bit of noise . You can walk from the house into town in 10 minutes and most attractions are only 30 minutes away by car. There are walks of varying difficulty from the house and fishing is available on the Spey which is 15 minutes walk. We were blessed with the weather and did not spend much time inside or had need to have heating on. If you are not bothered about luxuries and want a place to chill and have a good time ,try it.

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.
