With breathtaking scenery surrounding this solitary house, you can guarantee a sense of peace and tranquillity when you stay here. Nature dominates this traditional country cottage.

This traditional stone cottage has been fully modernised and sits in an enviable rural spot on a hillside with sweeping countryside views. Surrounded by an impressive range of attractions, from beaches to forests, historic houses to whisky distilleries, there’s definitely something for everyone here. The house is wonderfully secluded, 100 acres of lush green grounds that blend seamlessly into the neighbouring fields.

Drop bags and coats in the hallway and send the kids upstairs to explore while you put the kettle on in the spacious kitchen/diner. Leave unpacking until later and sit back at the dining table for six with sunshine flooding in through the large window. You’ll be pleased to see a separate utility room to store wet or sandy gear, and a full oven with electric hob, as well as a dishwasher and microwave. Along the hall, a single bedroom and shower room are perfect for a teenager or extra guests, and the cosy sitting room has a wood burner for chilly evenings, plus plenty of comfy sofa space, a TV with DVD – and room enough to spread out a board game too.

Upstairs, the children will have settled into their twin bedroom in the eaves, and there’s a double room as well, with fantastic views across the valley to Ben Rinnes. Families and those who enjoy a soak after a day on their feet, will be happy to see the bath with shower above in the upstairs family bathroom.

Outside, the semi-enclosed garden has a BBQ and garden furniture ready for summer dinners alfresco, and ample parking.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Although set in open countryside, it's just a mile to the pretty village of Archiestown, which has a shop, Post Office and a hotel with a well-received bar/restaurant. There is a multitude of cycle and hiking trails of varying difficulty right from the house, so it's easy to stretch the legs, no matter how long they are.

Older families and keen hikers can walk down to Carron, 3 miles away, and pick up the Speyside Way which stretches along the river valley from Buckie on the Moray coast to Aviemore on the edge of the Cairngorms. Of course, there's no need to walk the entire 65 miles. The river is one of the best salmon and trout rivers in Scotland, and nearby Speyside Cooperage, 7 miles away, has a great visitors centre where you can watch the lifecycle of the whisky cask and even try your hand at building a miniature barrel, before enjoying a dram and a cuppa with the obligatory locally-made shortbread.

Hop in the car and head north to Spey Bay, 20 miles away, for an unforgettable day spotting bottlenose dolphins at the WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre, as well as exploring the icehouse with its huge collection of locally collected whale bones, and interactive exhibitions.

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.
