A romantic getaway for couples in Chapeltown of Glenlivet that serves as an ideal base for exploring the National Park and the Malt Whisky Trail.

Purpose-built with holidaymakers in mind, the yurt provides fantastic accommodation for those looking to stay somewhere quirky with plenty of places to explore. Brilliant for outdoor lovers, there are plentiful walks and hills to climb – the Cairngorm mountain itself is less than one hour’s drive away and is popular all year round with Munro baggers and skiing enthusiasts. For those who enjoy life at a slower pace, Speyside is the home of more than half of all Scottish whisky distilleries, so the Malt Whisky Trail is well worth a trip. You are also ideally placed for exploring the Moray coastline and Aberdeenshire – both within an hour’s drive away.

Entrance to the yurt is via some decked steps from ground level up to the door. The yurt consists of an open sleeping area with a multifuel stove as the central focal point of the property, so you can keep toasty and warm. The bed is made up of two singles which can be pushed together to make a double or can be split depending on guest’s preference. The yurt has been furnished and decorated in an Oriental style, with rugs and pictures that have been collected by the owner during their travels across the world. There is also a sofa which can fold down into a single bed (suitable for a child only) and a folding table with chairs which is ideal for mealtimes, which can be put away when not in use to give you more space. There is a TV which can be used to watch DVD’s only. The kitchen is compact yet contains an electric hob, microwave and fridge. Next door to this is the shower room with WC and wash basin.

There is garden seating to the front of the yurt, where you can enjoy the peace and quiet during the day in the sunshine, as well as in the evenings where you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Northern lights at certain times of the year. Private off-road parking for 1 car

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.
