Surrounded by walking, fishing and sandy spots, this splendid Scottish dwelling is suited to those with a passion for the great outdoors. If days full of adventure aren’t quite active enough for you, make the most of the tennis court and while away your mornings and evenings challenging fellow guests to a match.

Step inside the hallway, kick off your shoes and head into the bright kitchen for a warming cup of tea. Gather around the island and indulge in some tasty snacks as you plan your first adventure, or draw up a list of competitors who will take to the tennis court. On fresh days, throw open the French doors as you cook up a storm in this great communal space, make the most of the AGA and savour some delicious slow-cooked food. For a post-dinner spot of relaxation, put your feet up in the lounge where a roaring open fire promises to keep you warm during chillier months.

The mezzanine floor is home to three of six bedrooms, including the attic room with four single beds. This room is reached by climbing another set of stairs and is an exciting space for children to rest their heads under the quirky sloping ceiling. Freshen up with ease in the family bathroom where you can enjoy a long soak in the bath or a quick shower to get your day off to a good start.

Ascend to the first floor to discover the remaining three bedrooms, including the master double with en-suite bathroom. Drift off to sleep in any of these charming rooms and wake feeling refreshed and ready for the day ahead.

The magic continues outside where you can dine alfresco and sip tipples in the sunshine on the glorious patio around the table. Make the most of the fresh air and snuggle up with a blanket under the stars; when there is a chill in the air, pop on a jacket and wander the orchard. The all-weather tennis court is available to use from April to September so be sure to book accordingly to keep sporty guests happy!

The House was perfect. Every cooking utensil you could wish for. Two dishwashers were a godsend. Large chest freezer in outhouse was useful. House was very warm with plenty logs available for fire. Bedrooms were spacious with very comfortable beds. Gardens are beautiful.

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.
