Charming spacious period cottage, nestled in a peaceful location in the heart of a beautiful 18 hole golf course. Just a short stroll from the first Tee and fully licenced Club House and restaurant.

Make a great escape to this delightful stone cottage set in the unique surroundings of a picturesque golf course which sleeps up to four people. Pack your clubs and make the most of being at the heart of the 18-hole parkland venue at Lasswade, just 6 miles from the vibrant capital city of Edinburgh. Explore the magnificent city as well from your base and discover its wealth of history, lively arts scene and abundance of attractions. Roam through the scenic countryside of this corner of Scotland and walk or cycle to your heart’s content.

This enticing, single-storey stone retreat has been designed to offer bright, inviting living space. Enjoy its cheery colour scheme, which brings sunshine all year round, and relax after a hard day of exploring in your comfortable and homely property which is located in a perfectly peaceful part of the world.

The cottage has a spacious lounge/kitchen/diner which is a great place for socialising whilst someone cooks. The superb kitchen area is complete with breakfast bar, where you can whip up your own meals on evenings you decide not to dine out or at the nearby clubhouse. In the lounge area, sink back into the inviting sofas and unwind with a bit of TV or a film on the DVD player. Alternatively, take a lovely, long soak in your family bathroom. Both the twin and king-size bedroom have gorgeous views of the pretty garden.

Step out into this peaceful, private outside area to dine in the fresh air or to sip a sundowner as the day draws to a close. Your perfect holiday home also offers generous off-road parking and it is just a very short stroll to the clubhouse where you can get a bite to eat if you don’t fancy cooking.

Indulge yourself in the many attractions of the Kings Acre golf course and perhaps take time out to play at one of the other many clubs in the area as well.

Head into the beautiful city of Edinburgh whenever you choose to take a table at one of its many fabulous restaurants or to treat yourself to a little shopping therapy. Explore Scotland's capital city, visiting its castle, Palace of Holyrood House and take in the spectacular view from Arthur's Seat. Walk the Royal Mile through the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. Spend time in the Grassmarket area, with its vibrant shops and lively pubs and cafés. Don't forget to look out, of course, for Edinburgh's many festivals for which it is so famous.

Alternatively, drive approximately 4 miles from your holiday home into the Pentland Hills Regional Park where you can enjoy Lothian's scenic landscape as you follow various trails and paths. Head some 10 miles to reach the east coast for days out at the seaside where you can stroll along miles of golden sandy beach and enjoy some dramatic scenery. Visit Portobello, with its wide promenade, or the quaint fishing villages of Port Seton and Cockienzie, with their harbours. Or you could drive just over 4.5 miles to visit the exquisite Rosslyn Chapel, which features in Dan Brown's book The Da Vinci Code.

The location was absolutely stunning, and suited our needs for this holiday, we would be unlikely to stay here again anyway as this was a one off trip, but we do feel that the cottage could do with having a makeover with new fixtures and fittings.

We had a week stay, the location is very quiet with beautiful walks which we and our dog loved. The equipment and facilities, hot water and heating were great. The property could do with some attention in places but it was fine for us and very homely. We really enjoyed our stay.

Excellent location. Comfortable enough, but interior needs to be refreshed and is shabby compared to other properties we have stayed in. Standard of cleanliness was concerning and cleaning had to be done before we could settle in to use the facilities. Information re use of equipment was inadequate and systems such as waste disposal poorly explaineRead mored...bins had clearly not been emptied prior to our arrival and though we put them out on the designated day they were not emptied.

Although it looks a little tired, jaded and in need of a refresh, Blue Spruce Cottage has been the ideal base in beautiful surroundings to catch up with our family and especially our five year old grandson who we haven't seen for eight months due to covid restrictions.

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.
