This remote and beautiful part of Perthshire is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, with so many fascinating locations just a short distance away. A variety of low and high-level routes beckon walkers and cyclists alike to venture through these fantastic surroundings. Butterstone Loch is only 1 mile away and is great for walking. Alternatively, Loch of the Lowes is just 3.5 miles away and has a visitor centre and 98 hectares of wildlife reserve to explore. You can witness the star attraction – a pair of breeding ospreys – as well as beavers, otters, red squirrels and more.

5 miles away, outside the lovely village of Dunkeld, sits the impressive Birnam Oak. This tree is estimated to be over 500 years old and is the last standing relic of the Birnam Wood that features in Shakespeare's Macbeth. After visiting this fascinating tree, you could head to Birnam Hill which has a scenic circular walk featuring King's Seat.

A little further away, 9 miles from the property, is Corbenic Poetry Path. With hand-built paths, ancient native woodlands and wild moorlands, this quiet corner of Perthshire inspires a love for the beauty of nature.

Further afield, roughly 20 miles away, you can find several impressive castles to visit that tell a story of the rich Scottish history in this area, such as Castle Menzies, Elcho Castle and Huntingtower Castle. While you explore these historical sites, why not stop at the city of Perth for a meal at an award-winning restaurant or take a walk along the River Tay?

A really lovely cottage for a family and children. The equipment both inside the house and in the garden is brilliant. the only thing to be aware of is that it is on a steep hill, so not easy for anyone with limited mobility. But otherwise it is really perfect - and it is not 'fussy' - just what you want for a family holiday and it worked well withRead more different generations. Hide

We had an amazing time at Forebrae. The house has an unusual layout but this suited us really well as three families sharing. Most of the bedrooms have a double bed and a single bed in the same room. Also a few of the rooms have a sink in the room too. We all loved the roll top bath, a very relaxing way to unwind at the end of the day. There is a hRead moreuge cabinet of games and a nice little snug where the children watched Netflix while we chatted around the wood burner in the next room. Hide

Forebrae is situated in beautiful scenery - particularly lovely in Autumn. The house itself has everything you could need, a kitchen full of equipment, a games cupboard, a trampoline and swing set, and a stunning roll top bath! A fab place for a big family/group of friends to go on holiday. Perfect if you love walking/exploring and nature.

Lovely home to stay in-nice layout, welcoming atmosphere, spotless and very well equipped with generous supplies of everything including logs for the wood burners. Beds were all very comfortable and the location was great with Dunkeld and The Hermitage nearby. Everyday we saw an amazing variety of wildlife. Good communications with the owner.

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.
