Spacious period house with stunning views across Loch Long. Situated in Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, perfect retreat for families and friends looking to get away from it all or explore the great outdoors.

An excellent base for a West Coast holiday, this delightful house sleeps ten guests across five bedrooms, perfect for a large family or group of friends. Retaining many of its original features giving a real sense of timelessness, there is character and style in abundance. A great escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this beautiful coastline and countryside is simply stunning – discover shimmering lochs, woodland trails, castle ruins and secluded beaches before returning to recharge the batteries with a glass of wine in front of the warming wood burner.

Blending period charm with modern comforts, inside you’ll find ornate cornicing, high ceilings and antique furniture complement contemporary touches and finishes. Warm wooden floors and large windows are the perfect backdrop for bright, patterned soft furnishings, striking wallpaper and some unusual but stylish features, creating a traditional yet quirky home from home that is both welcoming and very comfortable.

The farm-style, country kitchen is pleasant with its large table and flagged floor, and patio doors open to the large decked area outside, perfect for a spot of al fresco dining. Gather for meals in the kitchen or make an occasion in the more formal dining room. Adults can settle in the lounge at the end of a busy day, where a mix of antiques and artwork create a stylish yet comfortable feel, whilst the kids can have their own space in the snug. The large conservatory has fantastic views right across the garden and ideal for enjoying the sunshine even when its cold outside. The lounge, dining room and snug all boasting wood burners is the icing on the cake.

The property’s unique character is retained in the five bedrooms with the vibrant textiles matched by pretty, patterned carpets and floral wallpaper. One double bedroom has a garden balcony with loch views, the perfect escape to watch the sun go down, whilst the six bathrooms, three of which are en-suites and one of which is a wet room, makes life easy for large, mixed-age family groups. Wake to lovely views to take your morning coffee in the garden and watch the sunrise over the surrounding landscape.

Located within a two-minute walk of the loch edge, children will love spending hours exploring the rock pools and getting their toes wet. The garden has different levels to explore and the beautiful, large lawn is perfect for games in the evenings, before dining alfresco on the deck having sizzled up a delicious meal on the charcoal BBQ.

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.
