Not often I say I will definitely go back to somewhere I have been before as I like to explore different places but Castlecraig really is a hidden gem to which I will definitely return. Stunning location, with excellent facilities, we couldnt have asked for anything else.

Absolutely beautiful lodge in a stunning location. The views are amazing and the lodge was the perfect place to escape from the world and recharge your batteries. Les (the owner), is lovely and nothing is too much trouble. Had a fantastic break and hope to be able to return in the future.

The accommodation was excellent. Well equipped with all that you need, and was spotlessly clean. The welcome pack of local treats that was left for us was a lovely touch. The owners serviced the hot tub every day which was really good. We cant wait to go back, as it was a peaceful break just looking out to sea all day. (Sunrises and sunsets were grRead moreeat from the hot tub too.) Hide

Lovely view and quite remote . It could be rather tricky to get to/from in the winter months. Local town eating places do not allow dogs, which is extremely frustrating and a rather dated approach.. There is no storage for bags and wet weather gear (boots , jackets etc). No Vacuum just a tiny brush No washing machine Cooker - couldnt get the cookerRead more to work at all - kept turning off TV - you will need access to your own APPS ( Nextfix , amazon to use) . Not great for non-tech people. 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.
