As usual, we arrived to a spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable cottage. For the same price as a few nights in a caravan park we had a week in a spacious home with stunning views towards the hills and within a few minutes drive of amazing forests, rivers, lochs and the sea.

A lovely cottage in a wonderful setting and an easy stroll to Newton Stewart. Ideal for visiting forest, beaches etc. Beautiful walks especially around Loch Trool. The children and dog loved playing in the field in the evenings and the adults enjoyed some much needed chill out time.

Friendly owner, wine and fresh flowers left as a welcome gift. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and fabulous views. Far away enough to be quiet and isolated, but close enough for a ten minute walk into Newton Stewart. Perfect.

Flowers, Wine and Milk were waiting for our arrival, very nice touch.... A warm greeting from David and he had the cottage toasty warm for us as the weather wasn't too good outside. Stunning cottage,stunning views and the countryside that is on your doorstep is just gorgeous. Great base for a walking holiday. The cottage isn't in town, so very quieRead moret but only a stones throw away from all the shops, supermarkets and restaurants, best of both worlds. Can't wait to return!!!! 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.
