Charming whitewashed property located in a secluded spot on a working farm, ideally located for a family or friends looking to explore the Highlands, Inverness and the Cairngorms.

This quaint traditional Highland cottage is situated on a working farm, surrounded by peaceful countryside and rolling hills. It's perfect for families who are looking to get away from their busy day-to-day lives to experience real Highland life. The fields around the property are teaming with farm life and you can even take a ‘farm tour’ to experience Scottish farming in its true form.

This semi-detached cottage invites you into a comfortable and homely atmosphere with a traditional cottage style of furnishings and decoration running throughout. Its layout is cosy and family friendly so that you have piece of mind to let the children roam freely but remain under your watchful eye. The cottage is arranged all on one level and offers guests a real home from home experience. Each room is respectfully decorated to retain the Highland cottage feel, using traditional floral patterns, bright colours and soft decor.

The cosy sitting room/dining room is classed as the heart of this cottage and is sure to be where you spend most of your time together as a family. The gallery style kitchen is compact but functional with everything you will need to prepare delicious home-cooked meals for those hungry little tummies! The bedrooms are bright and fresh and offer a comfortable space to rest in after a long day spent roaming the countryside.

Nairn (6 miles) is a pretty seaside town and very popular with holidaymakers due to its attractive harbour, beautiful sandy beaches and riverside walks. Benefitting from its own micro-climate, Nairn is one of the driest, warmest and sunniest places to visit in Scotland. With views over the Moray Firth you might even be lucky enough to see seals, dolphins, porpoises and whales that are known to often frequent these waters.

With plenty of activities available to you in Nairn such as cycling, walking, fishing, golfing and kayaking it is an ideal town to be based near to, should you wish to explore this area of the Highlands. Surrounded by historical sites including Brodie Castle, Culloden Battlefield, Cawdor Castle, Kinloss Abbey and so much more makes this area of the Highlands a location where you can experience everything Scotland has to offer.

A little further up the coast is the pretty village of Findhorn famously known for its eco-village, beautiful sandy beach and attractive harbour. Findhorn along with neighbouring Burghead Bay and Culbin Forest offer many outdoor pursuits and water sports if you are looking for something that bit more adventurous.

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.
