Lovingly updated inside, this spacious cottage is the perfect base for memorable holidays in the Highlands.

Look out across the River Findhorn and the undulating green countryside from this special holiday cottage in Moray. Take in the magnificent views from the cleverly arranged home, with its exceptional picture windows. Walk down to the beautiful river from the property, which sleeps up to seven guests across four bedrooms. Go walking, cycling or horse-riding in your surroundings or venture slightly further afield to mountains, moors and beaches. Enjoy being close to nature in this glorious corner of Scotland, where you can often spot osprey and deer.

Quickly realise your wonderful holiday home is all about the views and the light. Discover rooms that are filled with streaming sunshine thanks to the abundance of windows. Find inviting spaces that have been decorated in neutral shades to enhance the natural light – then lifted even further by furniture and accessories that bring a splash of colour.

Step through your porch hall to discover a splendid dual-aspect lounge/diner which will be the focal point of your stay here. Soak up the views through the bank of windows along one side. Light the open fire and watch a DVD while it blazes; dine at the table or open the door onto the garden to step out into the fresh air. Choose to eat in your kitchen/diner instead if you wish. Find a utility room, family bathroom and a comfortable twin bedroom at this level too.

Head up the attractive staircase to your bright galleried landing above. This leads to three more cottage-style bedrooms with coombed ceilings, as well as a second family bathroom.

Your gorgeous, enclosed garden offers even more opportunities for losing yourself in the panoramas around you. Light the BBQ or carry out lunch to eat in the sunshine. Keep a pair of binoculars handy for birdwatching and you won’t be disappointed.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Spend an afternoon in the bustling town of Forres, approximately 8 miles from your cottage: wander its colourful streets and browse in its fascinating galleries and shops. Head 4 miles out of town to see 16th century Brodie Castle and famous grounds.

Make the 11-mile journey from your holiday home to Kinloss, with its ruined abbey, or go 13 miles to Findhorn, with its beautiful bay. Internationally renowned as the base of the eco-friendly Findhorn Foundation, this is a lovely place to stroll around and simply spend time on the beach. Look out for various events and festivals here throughout the year.

Head approximately 11 miles west from your Scottish retreat to visit spectacular Cawdor Castle. This was built around a 15th-century tower house and has been home to the Thanes of Cawdor for some 600 years. Famous for its connections to Shakespeare's Macbeth, it is also known for its three contrasting gardens that visitors can wander around.

Keen golfers will also find plenty of courses to challenge themselves in this area of Moray, while those with a nose for whisky, might like to visit one of the Speyside distilleries to see how their favourite dram is made and perhaps take home a bottle or two.

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.
