Surrounded by water on two sides and 5000 acres of the Culbin Forest, the location of this property is truly spectacular and perfect for those who want a get away with an extra special touch.

A beautifully renovated outbuilding turned into a cosy romantic getaway which is perfect for a couple. Picnic or play games on the huge stretch of beach that lies at the end of an avenue of Irish yew trees. Set just five miles away is the beautiful town of Forres, one of Scotland's oldest small towns and home to a variety of craft shops and galleries as well as several events such as the carnival-style Culture Day. Nearby you will also find the eco-village of Findhorn which has great access to the Speyside whisky trail, beaches and golf courses at the Moray coast, and even the dolphins who call Moray Firth home.

From here arrive into the spacious lounge with high ceilings allowing in plenty of natural light, creating a warm environment. In the lounge you will find a sofa and armchair surrounding the wood burner and Smart TV. There is also a small separate WC leading off the lounge to the left. Head across to the kitchen which has been tastefully decorate and is the perfect place for the chef, with an electric oven and hob, microwave, washing machine and the table and chairs. Lastly we arrive into the twin zip-and-link bedroom (which can be made into a super-king-size on request), with tasteful features throughout and the continuation of the fantastic high ceilings, which really showcases the history of the property and finally there is the en-suite shower room with shower and WC.

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.
