A charming, secluded stone cottage offering accommodation for a romantic break with your loved one. Discover varied wildlife and explore the Scottish countryside by foot or by bike before settling down for a restful night's sleep.

Situated in a peacefully remote and private setting nestles this converted studio-style cottage, that was once the local jam factory. If you are looking for tranquillity and solitude this property is approached by its own driveway and is surrounded by nothing other than nature and wildlife. Here you can step outside your front door and instantly be in the wild and natural environment of the west coast of Scotland.

This cosy and versatile studio style cottage has been thoughtfully designed to provide light, comfortable and welcoming accommodation. Equipped with a wood burner, you will be able to cuddle up in front of the fire after a long day of exploring what the west coast of Scotland has to offer. There is no TV within the cottage as its tranquil style of furnishings aims to compliment its surroundings by offering peace and quiet to enjoy the beautiful setting.

The accommodation is situated all on one level and incorporates a studio open-plan living area design. The lounge area is cosy with a wood burner and the kitchen/dining area is equipped with electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge and washer/ dryer. The bedroom area has a king-size bed.

The cottage’s location makes it the perfect romantic getaway for couples looking for a break from the busy hustle and bustle of everyday life. It has an enclosed garden, however, with no neighbours other than the wildlife overlooking you - you are completely free to roam the wilderness straight from your front door.

Located on the Applecross Peninsula in Wester Ross, the landscape here is dramatic and unspoilt, almost another world. Its striking beauty and remoteness makes you feel like you are experiencing the true Scottish Highlands and some of its breathtaking, untouched wilderness. The picturesque little village of Applecross (1.5 miles) is west facing and offers beautiful views overlooking the bay to the Isle of Skye. Whether it is by foot, bike or boat this is a fantastic spot to explore. There is so much to see and do on this Highland Peninsula from sea kayaking, sailing tours and seal watching, to coast path walking, mountain climbing and much more.

The Bealach na Ba (Pass of the Cattle) is only one of two ways into the village of Applecross and is one of the highest roads in Britain reaching 2,053 ft. Spend time walking and exploring as the mountain views all along Bealach na Ba are spectacular, but be sure to take extra care on those Alpine hairpin bends! It is a single track road and one of the most famous parts of the North Coast 500 route, offering magnificent views across the bay to Raasay and The Isle of Skye.

Cosy beautiful ottage in a great location for walks and trails in the lovely Applecross peninsula. Susan and Isobelle were most helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The only negative comment is the cottage is dark inside due to the surrounding trees and this also impacts on the wood burner

A small cottage, almost in the woods, in a beautiful area, and close enough to facilities ( pub etc). Very comfortable bed, but no freezer. Also rather dark and midgy because of the trees. But the nearby Walled Garden Cafe was lovely.

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.
