This charming well-presented detached lodge located in St Fillans, the gateway to the Highlands being an area of outstanding beauty.

This Scottish log cabin boasts the most fantastic views across Loch Earn with the towering Ben Vorlich in the distance, and with a hotel/restaurant on the doorstep too it's a pretty perfect place to be.

The cabin enjoys beautiful loch views from both inside and out in the front garden. The open-plan living space has a lounge area to one end, with comfy leather sofas, an electric fire and a TV/DVD with Netflix and Roku to snuggle up in front of, plus a small dining table in the window. To the other end, a compact kitchen has everything you'll need whether you're planning full evening meals with all the trimmings on the electric oven and hob, or just popping in an easy microwave meal. And on warm summer days, there's a BBQ in the garden too for laid-back dining al fresco. The washing machine is a useful addition, particularly if visiting during the wetter months. There's nothing worse than heading back out for more exploring in damp clothes from the previous day's adventures. The modern bathroom has a bath and a shower attachment over it, and at the end of a long day in the fresh air, you'll be thankful for the crisp white sheets in the king-size bedroom to collapse into with a good book. Outside, as well as the garden with seating and a BBQ an enclosed fenced garden area to keep your dogs along with a private parking space.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.
