We enjoyed our two weeks at the house very much. There is a lot to see in the area with the nice old town Dunkeld and Pitlochry not far away. We visited the enchanted forest in Pitlochry, this was a great fun for all of us (adults and children).

The Perfect venue for groups wanting space and luxury together. The house is well stocked, clean and in a beautiful location with plenty of local activities around to keep everyone entertained.

Beautiful house in a beautiful setting, calm environment with a cute town nearby ! Unfortunately, a bit run down due to lack of maintenance. Limescale clogged shower heads, white towels are "grey", moth nests in at least one room. Kitchen poorly equipped for cooking for more than 4 people!

Dungarthill House was rented for a weekend to celebrate a big birthday party. We stayed with 13 adults and 8 children and had plenty of space. The rooms are big and the beds are comfortable. There are plenty of bathrooms, so most families had a bathroom each. The bedrooms are all different decorated and I liked all the personal touches. Downstairs Read moreis grand. There are 3 big rooms for entertaining. The billiard room and drawing room in particularly are lovely. There are open fires in all of the downstairs rooms and in the hall, which make the rooms even more cosy. The kitchen is big and functional with a big AGA and another cooker. The dining room is just beautiful and we managed to sit down with all our 21 guests around the table. What makes Dungarthill House so different to other country houses, is that it is lovely and warm, even without the fires on. The heating system is brilliant and on arrival the house and the AGA were both warm. We did explore the grounds, but the weather was challenging, so didn't venture out much. The grounds were well kept and plenty of space to run around or play some games on the lawn. Overall I can highly recommend staying in Dungarthill House. We were all sad to leave. 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.
