Am going to give 5 stars to this lovely apartment and it is well equipped and spotlessly clean. The owners are very pleasant and welcoming and have gone to a lot of trouble to ensure you have a very good comfortable stay. It is in a very peaceful surroundings and lovely rural area. Just right for a restful holiday not far from small villages and thRead moree harbour of St Abbs. Well worth going too. Highly recommended!! Hide

A lovely apartment within a small castle set in beautiful grounds. Communication with the owners was excellent, with precise directions emailed to us the day before departure. The apartment has everything you could need to self cater and felt like home from home. A welcome pack was waiting for us upon arrival. Location a little off the beaten trackRead more but ensured peace and quiet, and the village of Coldingham is a short drive away with beach access. We wouldnt hesitate to return in the future. 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.
