This beautiful remote cottage on a picturesque estate high up the Findhorn Valley, offers guests the ideal escape from everyday life with incredible wildlife just moments from the doorstep.

If you like your cottages wild then you certainly won’t be disappointed by this property, which affords a fantastic location in the heart of the Highlands. Situated high up the Findhorn Valley on the pretty Glenmazeran Estate, this is the perfect setting to watch deer who graze outside the property as well as wild goats and eagles. Wildlife lovers and fans of the great outdoors will find plenty of exciting things to do from this fantastic base.

Fresh, crisp and clean, the bright and airy interior provides a homely yet modern space for families and friends to enjoy. The ground floor is home to a lounge, kitchen/diner, twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom, laundry room and WC. The property has been fully refurbished with a neutral palette, using soft tweeds and muted tones to create a relaxing space. This is the perfect spot to relax during the evening, with soft sofas, TV and DVD player as well as a wood burner to warm up those chilly evenings. The kitchen/diner contains all the mod cons you will need for a self-catering stay. There’s a little sunroom on this floor too, which overlooks the pretty land. Upstairs on the first floor, a further two bedrooms complete the space. Both decorated tastefully and boast their own en-suite bathrooms.

Outside you will find a private garden with outdoor furniture and a barbecue. There could be no better setting than this for a family meal during the evening. Sunsets here can only be breathtaking.

Get away from it all and experience true Scotland at this property. This is the real Scotland - this is the Highlands. There is a wealth of outdoor opportunities for keen explorers as well as gentle hikers. When you have the great outdoors as your playground the possibilities really are endless. If you would like to try fishing on the Findhorn then it may be possible to organise this by arrangement (there are lots of fishing opportunities in Scotland but please do check the rules beforehand). There are walking and cycling opportunities right from your doorstep but if you want to explore a little further afield then the city of Inverness is located around 16 miles from the cottage. Here you will find a wealth of attractions, including Inverness Castle, Abertarff House (the oldest house in Inverness) and Inverness Cathedral. Cairngorm National Park is located within driving distance and provides visitors with countless outdoor opportunities. This is a fantastic area with stunning scenery, so make sure you plan this in advance and take a whole day to explore what it has to offer. Regardless of how you plan to spend your time, this cottage forms a great base to explore The Highlands.

Really lovely cottage, beautifully appointed and very remote. If you have dogs then they have to be on leads at all times as there are deer and sheep and other lovely wildlife very closeby. There is no enclosed space where the dog(s) can be safely away from the sheep and deer. Highly recommended but don't trust your SatNav!

Great location with marvellous views. Over forty red deer stags just outside the windows almost every evening. Well equipped kitchen. Comfortable lounge with log burner. Bear in mind that while each bedroom (twin single beds) has en-suite bathroom with baths, there are no showers.

We loved our stay here. The cottage is very spacious and well equipped with everything you will need (plenty of loo roll and dishwasher tablets for the week). It's in an amazing location, very remote, which you should bear in mind if you want to do much travelling to other places, but you get lovely views and wildlife to enjoy as a result. There isRead more one cottage nearby, with friendly neighbours, who helped us out when we ran out of matches! Everything was very clean and we felt very comfortable. 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.
