Enjoying a wonderfully peaceful location and fabulous rural views, this historic castle gate lodge sits in extensive tree-lined gardens close to the village of Newtyle.

Bathed in natural light from the large bay window, your sitting room is a relaxing space filled with comfortable sofas arranged around the wood burner, perfect for those chillier days. Curl up in the TV room to watch a family film or unwind with a good novel in the airy sunroom. Prepare family meals in the well-equipped kitchen to sit and enjoy at the stylish dining table.

We stayed in Kinpurnie Gatelodge for the weekend twice within the space of four weeks we loved it so much. The house was spotlessly clean with good quality fixtures and fittings.

Overall the cottage was excellent. We struggled as there was no deep freeze so ice for drinks and keeping anything frozen was impossible. Also we were missing 1 Bath sheet that made things difficult with 4 adults.. Some clear instructions about where to park would also have avoided some confusion with the gardener!

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.
