Fabulous cottage in a wonderful location. We were cosy and warm from the underfloor heating. Lots of great walks in the area and a hot tub to relax in at the end of the day. A fantastic place to get away from it all.

Absolutely lovely from the time we got there till the time we left. Hot tub was always checked and ready for use, with robes and slippers plus towels. Everything we needed was at hand. Had lovely walkes. It was what we needed for a restful Christmas. Log burner was great and logs as many as we wanted. I would recommend this holiday to everyone.

Fantastic clean equipped property. Warm welcome with home made cakes - bake off should watch out ! If you want something a little more substantial than disposable slippers (really appreciated as did not think of taking anything ourselves) then take your own flip flops.

A fantastic cottage in a great location for exploring Dumfries and Galloway. Hosts were delightful and the cottage had everything we needed - and most importantly a very comfy bed! We had an excellent week and would definitely return.

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.
