The river flows out into the glorious Beauly Firth and then into the wide expanses of Moray Firth.

Beauly has a fantastic variety of independent craft shops, cheerful pubs and friendly restaurants. The town is also the starting and finishing point of the spectacular North Coast 500 route. Eager walkers and cyclists can attempt the 26-mile route around Beauly Firth, or head to Chanonry Point (17 miles) to try to spot dolphins leaping through the water.

Inverness is within easy reach (15 miles) and has plenty of great shops, pubs, restaurants, art galleries and boutiques. The city is home to landmarks and attractions including Inverness Castle, St Andrew’s Cathedral, the Botanic Gardens, the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, and the Hall of Names.

Hill Cottage is a perfect retreat for 2. We loved everything about it especially the view of the countryside & estuary. Sitting on the little terrace watching the birds come and go & the changing tides was so relaxing. We did a lot of walking - the climb up nearby Ord Hill was a challenge but totally worth it for the 360 degree views from the top.

Excellent, well maintained and comfortable accommodation in a quiet rural setting with great views out over the Beauly Firth. The bed mattress was a tad on the firm side for me but that's a matter of personal preference, so no negatives at all. We would gladly return in future.

A beautiful cottage it was a real home from Home everything was perfect. A great base to explore the area around you during the day & to relax in the evening listening & watching the birds coming & gong in the nearby bird house. While sitting on the patio having a glass of something. Highly recommended.

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.
