Had an amazing holiday at Failte, we saw plenty of wild life in the forms of otters, seals, dolphin, curlew, swans and many more. It was so relaxing to just sit in the garden and watch the boats sailing past and count the cars on and off the ferry. The weather was amazing and we all came back with tans like we had been to Spain. We took with us twoRead more paddle boards and a kayak which got used every day. We were also lucky that we managed to book into the hotel in the village 4 out of the 7 evenings. Hide

There is plenty of space downstairs, with a large kitchen with chairs facing the water and the view. We spent a lot of time in this room. Upstairs has 4 bedrooms but not a lot of cupboard space. Only 2 of us, so we ended up using a spare bedroom each to spread our clothes around. 2 good bathrooms upstairs (1 bath, 1 shower) and a further large showRead moreer/toilet room downstairs. Dog walking from the house is limited to left or right down the lane, but the views on this walk change every morning. Hide

Failte Kyles of Bute is a beautiful property. We were blown away by the incredible view and could have spent the week just gazing out the windows. Great location for exploring Bute, Loch Lomond and Loch Fyne. We spotted otters and herons right outside and window and the kids loved splashing around on the private 'beach' area.

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.
