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.

Peaceful location and a homely cottage tucked away on a beautiful golf course a short distance away from Edinburgh centre. An ideal location to use as a base if your planning on driving around the area and visiting the sights which we did on a daily basis. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax at night its ideal. The owners wRead moreere friendly and welcoming and I would definitely recommend it. We were a family of 4 (kids 5 +13) with a dog and loved it Hide

Cosy cottage in lovely peaceful surroundings. Easy reach of Edinburgh, Pentland Hills and North Berwick beaches. Also good for Roslyn and Linlithgow.

Great location, nice wee cottage. Thoroughly enjoyed the break.

Reviewed by Kathy 15th June 2019

Great site, safe and warm with lots of hot water. Fairly well equipped but if you want to cook in the oven take some roasting tins. It was quiet and very safe.

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.
