A peaceful countryside retreat on the outskirts of Beauly in the Scottish Highlands. Ideal for those who enjoy exploring the outdoors from a rural base.

Situated on the outskirts of the town of Beauly and within easy reach of Inverness, this homely annexe serves as a fantastic base from which to explore the Highlands of Scotland. The famous Loch Ness hosts boat trips and sightseeing tours in the area, and Beauly itself is a beautiful town with shops and restaurants to enjoy. Beauly Priory is an ancient monastery that dates back to around 1230, and this ruined church is well worth seeing during your stay here. Fishing is also available on the River Beauly (by permit only) and in the Beauly Firth, so keen anglers are certainly catered for here and in many of the rivers and lochs in the surrounding area.

Entrance to the annexe is via the sliding patio doors, where you walk in to the lounge/bedroom area. The comfy double bed folds away completely against the wall, giving guests extra space when it is not required. There is a Smart TV on the wall opposite the sofa, so you can easily relax and wind-down in the evenings with the option to stream a movie. The sliding patio doors are fantastic for enjoying sunrises and sunsets, and at night time you can draw the curtains that run the length of the wall, instantly making it feel cosy. The kitchen area is compact yet contains everything you could need during your stay with an electric oven, induction hob, fridge with ice compartment and microwave. The shower room with shower and WC is of a decent size and has additional handrails to aid the infirm.

Outside the patio doors is a small decked area with seating, where you can enjoy the serene farmland surroundings. The annexe is attached to the owners home, who can be on hand if required during your stay. There are numerous types of animals in the fields surrounding the property, including sheep, goats and cows. There is plenty of parking available and the garden is open with plenty of space to roam.

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.
