Wow what a location with views to die for ! We watched the fireworks over the castle from the lounge in our armchairs ,bit noisy at night but you are in the heart of the city so what do you expect ,the apartment is massive and very homely it was great for a family of 5

View is unbelievable! Loved everything about this place. Beds were comfortable, kitchen has all your needs making it excellent for cooking in, living room great for all gathering together to talk and people watch from enormous sized bay windows. Having two nice sized bathrooms was a plus. Only drawback is the winding 2-flight staircase to get to thRead moree apartment. With luggage a bit tough but without, a breeze. So many restaurants and shops right outside your door, literally! Hide

The apartment is just great, is spacious and you feel at home! It is in the heart of Edinburgh and has the most amazing view of the castle. If I could I would move in it right away.

It is a great location. No doubt about it. However, the noise from princess street can be heard throughout the flat. We heard the happy people leaving pubs and trucks unloading every nights until the wee hours. Also, there is no lift, so up two flights of spiral stairs was challenging for my senior parents. Overall, this was not an ideal spot for oRead moreur family. Hide

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.
