Idyllic during lazy mornings, rainy afternoons and evenings of celebration with the family, each room of this gorgeous manor has been carefully and tastefully considered.

Perfectly suited to those looking to absorb the peace and quiet and make the most of the glorious landscapes all around, you won't have to venture far to feel a cool breeze running through your hair and breathe in the pure, clean air of this remote part of Scotland.

If you would like to visit the area's picture-perfect beaches, a trip to the Moray Coast is a must. 16 miles away, you will arrive at Lossiemouth, dubbed ‘the jewel of the Moray Firth'. Great for sailors and golf fans as well as nature lovers, the town flaunts two pristine sandy beaches backed by a ridge of dunes and overlooked by rolling countryside; a true haven. Regularly visited by passing whales and dolphins out at sea, the charming fishing village of Burghead (15 miles) is also worth your time; visit Burghead Visitor Centre to learn about local history from 400AD to the present day.

To stock up on supplies, Elgin and Forres are great places to dip in and out of. Only 11 miles away, Elgin sits happily within the world-famous whisky region of Scotland and is home to a number of distilleries, including Glen Moray, Gordon & MacPhail and Glen Elgin. A little closer is Forres (8 miles), known for its art scene and castle.

The facilities including tennis, trampoline for mixed age group are great. The pond ( life jackets provided) is good fun and children aged 8-12 learnt to row, but they do need supervision on trampoline and near pond which is quite far from the house so not an immediate hazard. Hopeman beach beyond Elgin offers sand, rock pools, dunes and swimming (Read morewetsuits a must). A walk along the coastal path brings you to secret secluded bay. Castles, ruined and inhabited, and beautiful gardens to visit. Hide

We had a simply lovely holiday in this beautifully presented historical home. It is close to many places of historical interest as well as picturesque beaches. Much appreciation is due to Jean the housekeeper and Frances the cook, who have added so much to our holiday.

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.
