Bowhouse is essentially a comfortable, well equipped and spacious house with good outside space in the garden and for car parking. Dogs are only allowed in the kitchen. The conservatory is a lovely feature. It is not isolated but it is 400 hundred yards down a country lane and several hundred yards from the nearest house. It is very convenient for Read moreEdinburgh being only 10 minutes or so from the Halbeath Park and Ride, which gets you into the city in about 40 minutes. Hide

A comfortable old farmhouse refinished with all the modern necessities nestled in the pastoral hills of Fife. A great location as a base to explore the region or slip into Edinburgh for a day.

We had a lovely stay, the location was perfect and we would certainly recommend this as a place to stay. The cottage had loads of character and we can see why the owner choose to live there many years ago

Reviewed by David 28th July 2018

Property is showing its age. In need of some improvements, especially the windows. Good location but better in the brochure than in real life.

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.
