The cottage location is idyllic and ideal for walking the coastline or the hills or visiting the numerous endlessly sandy beaches. The option to sit outside with a good table and benches when warm, dry and midge-free or to sit in the conservatory with nice seating and dining space, in each case absorbing the views we came for made the holiday.

Beautiful area when the sun shines. Lovely conservatory. Comfy beds.Clean, except for the rodents droppings in the kitchen cupboard and inside the bowls.The leaking roof in the kitchen was also a shame. Stove needs some repairs too. Plenty towels. Which were needed to mop up the flood in the kitchen. Lovely cottage but needs some tender loving careRead more. Hide

Very cosy and well equipped for self catering. Views fantastic from conservatory. Very handy having a downstairs toilet as stairs were very awkward to go up and down quickly if elderly.

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.
