We had a wonderful stay at no. 83. Loved the decor, easy parking, everything we needed. Was very relaxing. Location was excellent to visit places nearby also. Loved owning a log burner if only for a few days. Definitely recommend a stay here

This is a nice little cottage for anyone wishing to visit Edinburgh and surrounds. The rooms were cosy with wood flooring throughout. A big TV in the front bedroom and another in the living room both with Internet connexion. When I arrived, John was there to greet me and show me around. He was available at the end of a mobile number for sorting outRead more any problems that may arise. All-in-all it was a very enjoyable stay and would recommend this comfy cottage to friends. Hide

We enjoyed our holiday and it was central for what we wanted to see. It was warm and comfortable although it does back onto a busy road which may have spoiled any outdoor eating - but it wasn't warm enough for us to do that. Can recommend meals at Cenzo's and the Oatridge in Uphall and the Chinese takeaway.

A lovely cottage situated in a quiet little village near Edinburgh. It had a real home from home feel about it with everything you need for your stay. It was absolutely spotless, so anyone worrying about holidaying during the pandemic need not worry about staying here. The owner gave us a lovely warm welcome and couldn't do enough for us. It is a gRead morereat spot to stay whilst visiting Scotland with lots to do not too far away. We would thoroughly recommend staying here and will be back! 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.
