We had a lovely time at Briar cottage which was fully equipped with everything we needed. The cottage itself in in the beautiful town of Kingussie which was about 300m down the road. There were some lovely walks along the river which was about 30m away from the house. There were lots of books to read in the property and the rooms and furniture wereRead more very elegant. Hide

Value for money property in a good location for exploring the area. Great modern kitchen and bathroom. The kids loved playing in the garden.

We spent a week in Brier Grove and were impressed by the very high level of all the rooms and especially the kitchen and the bathroom. The owner also sent us something we had lost by mail before we even discovered that we forgot it! If you like comfort and love to cook this house is an excellent choice! Thanks!

We spent a wonderful week in this lovely house as a family. The location was ideal for walking in the Cairngorms and the village provides everyone needed for food (a Coop, a butcher's and a Fish and Chips shop!). The kitchen and bathrooms have obviously been refurbished recently to the highest standards and are everything one would wish for. The reRead morest of the house has kept its grand, traditional aspect: a very cosy living room with an open fire and a Netflix-equipped TV, lovely spacious bedrooms upstairs and a grand dinning room. Plenty of space for the 5 of us to spent time together with still some privacy. 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.
