This delightful former farm cottage occupying an elevated position above Loch Duich is an ideal base for family walking holidays or for those into country pursuits.

Retreat to this pretty stone cottage which overlooks Loch Duich and beautiful Eilean Donan Castle. Wake up to the sight of mist rising from the water and the mountains of Skye and the Five Sisters of Kintail emerging in the morning light. Up to six guests are welcome to stay at this former farm cottage in the quiet hamlet of Letterfearn, in the north-west Highlands. Enjoy walking, fishing and other outdoor activities in your stunning surroundings.

Your delightful Highland abode has recently been refurbished throughout. It has been fitted with a new kitchen and bathroom to complement the other bright, welcoming rooms. Relish the property’s calm interior as much as its beautiful views and serene setting.

Step into your charming cottage via its porch and hallway. Find yourself in your cosy lounge, where you can light your open fire on chilly nights to make the space even more inviting. Watch TV in here and while away an hour or two chatting about the next day’s activities. Your new kitchen is the perfect place to prepare meals; then dine in your dining room to the glow of your second open fire if you choose. You’ll find you also have a useful utility room at ground-floor level, plus one of your bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate WC. Head upstairs to discover two more of your bedrooms. These have a wonderful cottage style and enjoy scenic views.

When the weather is fine, make the most of your wild garden. Sit out in the sunshine or follow the rough path down to the shores of the loch.

Enjoy the spectacular beauty of Loch Duich on foot from your cottage. Drive or walk approximately 12 miles around the loch to famous Eilean Donan Castle. With a history reaching back to the 6th century, this iconic Highland castle was built in its current form in the 13th century and stood guard over the lands of Kintail. Discover its past for yourself at its visitors' centre. Take a cruise out on the water from close by and look out for seals as you go.

Also uncover the history of Glen Shiel while you are in this part of the world. Encircled by steep mountains, this was the scene of a Jacobite rebellion in 1719. Today you can climb its beautiful Munros and walk beside Loch Cluanie, approximately 20 miles from your holiday home.

Hike to the magnificent Falls of Glomach: these are often described as the most impressive waterfalls in Britain as they have a single leap of 113 metres. The falls are about 24 miles from your base and you can drive some of the way, with various walks and cycle rides of different lengths to get you the rest of the way, depending on where you start from. Drive about 20 miles from Letterfearn to the famous Kyle of Lochalsh and from there make a trip over to the Isle of Skye.

The cottage is situated in a lovely secluded spot with stunning views from the loch shore of Eilean Donan castle and the Five Sisters of Kintail. The lounge and bedrooms are in the original part of the building which has the charming feel of a traditional highland cottage and the bathroom, kitchen and utility room are in a more modern part. We founRead mored it very comfortable, but a double bed in one of the bedrooms would make it even better. There is some amazing scenery in the area and we particularly enjoyed going over the Pass of the Cattle road to Applecross and then north to Shieldaig and Torridon. Taking the ferry from Kylerhea to Glenelg is also fun and the Glenelg Brochs are well worth a visit. All in all we had a very relaxing week and still can't believe that we were lucky enough to see badgers in the garden after dark. Hide

This is a magical house in a stunning location. It has a lovely feeling of seclusion with only one house in view from any window. It is charmingly old-fashioned in places but has all mod cons including Sky, washing machine, dryer etc. It feels very spacious downstairs. Lovely big, bright dining-room. Lovely atmosphere. A path that leads from the gaRead morerden to the loch and the view of the castle. Brilliant location for walking including from the house. We walked most days. Highlights included the Kintail mountains, the ferry from Glenelg to Skye, the teashop at Corran, the memorials to Gavin Maxwell and his otter, to name but a few. Letterfearn is extraordinary. 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.
