Set next to the ancient ‘Road of Kings’, this romantic bolthole is a fantastic place for an escape surrounded by beautiful Scottish glens and mountain views.

Set on a quaint complex of properties in Glen Lonan, this lovely semi-detached bothy sleeps two people and welcomes one canine companion. Sitting at the foot of Ben Cruachan, this is the perfect accommodation option for a romantic break away where you and your loved one can experience being totally surrounded by all the untamed beauty of the Scottish wilderness, while also enjoying all the convenience of having the pretty village of Taynuilt on your doorstep. Spend your days hiking the mighty Ben Cruachan or exploring romantic ruins in Oban (12.5 miles), and your evenings curled up with your sweetie in front of the bothy’s cosy wood burner.

This beautifully styled bothy boasts sleek, modern features, which it blends with a cosy home-away-from-home atmosphere. A tranquil colour palette of natural wood tones and crisp, clean whites make the most of the natural light that flows through this property, while soft, tactile furnishings create a soothing, homely ambience.

Step inside and you’ll find yourself in a light, bright, open-plan living area. Take a moment to soak up the incredible views before making yourself at home in the stylish kitchen area. Rustle up a romantic meal for two and dine together in the intimate dining area, before slipping onto a sofa in the living area to snuggle in front of the flickering wood burner. At the end of the day, there’s a glamorous king-size bedroom to retire to. In the morning you’ll wake up to wonderful views through the French doors that lead out into the garden.

You’ll find a charcoal BBQ in the enclosed garden, which is the perfect place to enjoy an al fresco dinner for two. It’s also a great place to wildlife-watch or simply wait for the stars come out. Ample off-road parking is available.

Nestled at the foot of Ben Cruachan between Loch Etive and Loch Awe, Taynuilt is a lovely village to explore. Spend a fascinating afternoon at the Bonawe Iron Furnace (2 miles) – the most complete charcoal-fuelled ironworks in Britain. Or tee-off and enjoy views of Loch Etive at the Taynuilt Golf Club (1 mile). After that, pop into the village’s tearoom or hotel to sample the local dishes on offer.

If you’re feeling a little more energetic, head to Connel (8 miles) and go on a sea-kayaking adventure, or go to Oban (12.5 miles) and try your hand at coasteering. While you’re in Oban, pay a visit to Dunstaffnage Castle, where Bonny Prince Charlie's heroine, Flora MacDonald, was held prisoner for a short time in 1746. Keep an eye out for the ghost in a green dress, who is apparently a ""glaistig"" - a fairy woman who heralds events in the lives of the Campbell family.

Or hop onboard a boat and take a trip to the islands from Oban. Relax as you sail to the Isle of Mull, the Isle of Iona and the awe-inspiring volcanic Isle of Staffa – home to Fingal's Cave, which is naturally formed entirely from jointed hexagonal basalt columns.

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.
