A peaceful countryside retreat on the outskirts of Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. Ideal for those who enjoy exploring the outdoors from a rural base.

This warm and welcoming cottage is situated on the bonnie Black Isle, ideally placed close to the A9 making the perfect base for an endless list of activities. Great walks to be had in the Fairy Glen by Rosemarkie, dolphin spotting at Fortrose, and for those interested in history perhaps a visit to Hugh Miller's cottage and the Cromarty Court House, Fort George, and Culloden battlefield, all within 25 miles. The vibrant and popular city of Inverness is just 6 miles away. Inverness Castle, along with other museums and galleries, is well worth visiting. This property is in the perfect location for a true Scottish adventure.

Enter the charming cottage from the garden into the spacious lounge. Relax on the comfortable sofas after a day out exploring and watch a movie on the Smart TV. There is also a comfy double bed in the lounge for two additional guests that folds away completely against the wall. Follow the hall through to the kitchen/diner and cook up a storm with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher microwave, and washing machine. Set the table and enjoy a family meal whilst planning your next adventures. Heading up the stairs, you will find a shower room with WC and a lovely spacious double bedroom with a balcony. If you are lucky, from the balcony you may spot the deer, woodpeckers, and squirrels that frequent the grounds.

Had such a lovely stay at Birchwood Cottage, all amenities provided with lots of provisions for cooking at home. David and Fiona were very accommodating and our daughter and grandson came from Glasgow for a couple of nights. A really lovely location that is handy for entering and exploring the city of Inverness or further afield to Nairn, Fort GeorRead morege or Lossiemouth. The Black Isle has many fabulous little towns and villages and we visited many. A great holiday. 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.
