Set in a spectacular location on the tranquil Applecross Peninsula, this stunning 1920s house offers glorious views and provides plush, spacious accommodation for a large group or family gathering.

The perfect place for celebrating a special occasion with loved ones or simply gathering up your nearest and dearest and losing yourself in wilderness for a while, it truly has something for everyone. Nestled in the thriving heart of untamed surrounds encroached by trees and visited by magnificent wildlife, it is perfect for those with a thirst for adventure and appreciation of Mother Nature. Pack your days with an agenda full to the brim or go with the flow from this wonderful home from home; your holiday has just begun.

Managing to nimbly tread the line between classy refinery and homely feels, this large, ten-bedroom family home in Kishorn, Strathcarron has all the ingredients for a rip-roaring family getaway or escape with friends. Pieced together with a jigsaw of bright, airy rooms and welcome surprises such as the irresistible sauna, you’ll struggle to leave its cosy embrace. While the kids amongst your clan won’t be able to resist scurrying off to the games room with table tennis, snooker table, board games and puzzles, granny and grandad can quickly scoot off to the sitting room with its sprawling library and wood burner to lap up some precious downtime. Also on the ground floor, the large open-plan kitchen/diner is a foodie’s paradise, not to mention a wonderful place to gather around with flutes of Champers and finger food, laughing, socialising and reminiscing over old memories and new. Complete with all sorts of mod-cons and appliances, the kitchen has everything you could need for preparing both light snacks and full-blown feasts to eat in the dining room. Accompanied by the addition of a prep room, pantry, larder, drying room, and laundry room, every aspect of your daily routine will be a breeze. Venturing into the rest of the house, you will come across ten bedrooms, some with en-suites and each as exuberantly comfortable as the next. Comprising seven doubles, one single and two twins, you can find the right arrangement for all of your party and look forward to the promise of dreamy nights’ sleep sandwiched between crisp sheets and plump pillows.

Whether you are looking for creative inspiration, a city detox or simply can’t wait to explore the surrounds, this property’s unparalleled location lends itself to all pursuits. Home to an enclosed garden, children and dogs can roam worry-free before you head out to play further afield. While mornings are best spent on the outdoor picnic bench, fingers clasped around a mug of tea, balmy summer afternoons are ideal for spreading out blankets and cushions for reading out Rabbie Burns poems or simply watching clouds drift overhead.

For some of the best views in the area, a trip to the famed Bealach na Ba is a must. A winding single-track road built-in 1822, Bealach na Ba zigzags its way through the mountains of the Applecross Peninsula and boasts superb views over Wester Ross and the Scottish Highlands.

Venerated by walkers and cyclers, a trip to the area wouldn't be complete without a hike or two. If you are feeling especially confident, Beinn Bhan is 7.5 miles away and, while this isn't one for novices, rewards experienced walkers with a glorious walk far from the crowds and occasionally graced with magnificent golden eagles.

A little more user-friendly and only 19 miles away, you can pick up the Beinn Eighe Mountain Trail and choose from a number of different routes suitable for all generations. Helped by track signage you can complete a hike to be proud of and enjoy jaw-dropping scenery along the way, followed by a pint in the local pub in Sheildaig (5 miles) or Lochcarron (10 miles)!

A mixed group of 17 hillwalking friends stayed here for 4 nights in early March. We have been going away for the last 25 years and this was one of the best venues for a part of this size. Lyndsay the housekeeper was very informative both before and after the trip and a great help overall. The house was surprisingly warm despite its size. Good dryinRead moreg room for wet gear and great to return and relax in the lounge with the open fire after a tough day in the hills. We would certainly have no hesitation about rebooking. 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.
