Fantastic, secluded, peaceful, and stunning views all around. You could not have a more comfortable place to stay either. Could not get over the cottage temperature inside being totally comfortable despite outside temps varying so much. A beautiful part of the world too!

The cottage is in a lovely isolated setting which suited us perfectly for a small family get together. The house is more than adequately equipped. The log fire was great. Kelso is about 10 minutes by car. We really enjoyed our time here.

It was a shame that we werent able to use the table tennis area as there was only one broken ball. Im sure future guests would like to be able to fully use the equipment as stated in the property details.

Cottage is nice, but felt it wasnt as clean as it should be.plenty space for us all. And the views are amazing, if you like a few days just chilling its ideal, there are places to see if you want to drive, garden area is great, my grandson loved to stand and watch the cows go by highlight of the holiday for him, over all a nice place.

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.
