Go walking or cycling at the nearby Tinto Hill, Culter Fell and Crosscryne

Property code: 82923

This charming period stone-built cottage, perfect for a cosy romantic retreat, is just 1.5 miles from the Royal Borough of Biggar and nestled amid beautiful countryside with scenic valley views.

Enjoy a romantic stay at this stone cottage that is situated just 1.5 miles from the Scottish market town of Biggar and takes in far-reaching views across South Lanarkshire. Spend time in the town, with its array of independent shops, restaurants, activities and attractions. Head out from the one-bedroom abode to follow hiking trails and cycle routes. Stroll through the Clyde Valley or the Southern Upland Hills then return to the traditional-style cottage, which sleeps two people and also welcomes one canine companion, to sit out in the sunshine with a glass of wine or in front of a romantic film for a cosy night in.

Tear yourself away from the views before entering this attractive Scottish cottage to find comfortable accommodation to suit you and your loved one. Leave your jackets, walking boots and backpacks in the hall and head on through into the spacious, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Settle on the soft seating with a cup of tea and a piece of Dundee cake to discuss your day and plan tomorrow’s adventure. Watch the Smart TV for a while, perhaps, or enjoy your favourite tunes through the Bluetooth speaker, then head through to the kitchen to prepare dinner. Dine together by the window as you gaze out across your scenic surroundings.

Climb a few stairs up to the double bedroom when it’s time to turn in for the night. Have a bath or shower when you wake in the morning then prepare a hearty breakfast to set you both up for the day.

Enjoy breakfast out in the sunshine whenever the weather is warm enough. Look out across the countryside from the patio by day and up at the starry skies by night. Find there is space to store cycles safely at the cottage and plenty of parking as well.

What a lovely peaceful and relaxing little cottage. Warm and cosy. A great base for walking and cycling. Loads of quiet country lanes. Great dog walks straight out of the front door including the thirty-odd minutes into Biggar town centre. Loads of takeaways and restaurants in Biggar. We would highly recommend the Taj Mahal. There are two beautifulRead more parkruns within a thirty minute drive of the cottage. 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.
