Family friendly cottage, we felt like we were home. Facilities excellent and very clean, with fantastic views of the valley, plan ahead for your groceries before arriving as nearest food shop is a 30 mins drive. The Glen Clover Hotel is up the road but we did not risk walking as no pathway and some cars can take the bends quite quickly, only 5 minsRead more drive the food, drinks and service are good The local walks are a must do, especially the amphitheater at Corrie Fee and up to Loch Brandy.

This is a great cottage in an excellent location. The proximity of the Clova Hotel allowed us to have a first indoor restaurant lunch. of the year - very good haddock and chips. We watched red squirrels daily from the living room windows and regularly saw a greater spotted woodpecker, plus two red deer. There is a good path to Prosen Village close Read moreto house ( 5 miles each way) and excellent walking in Glen Doll. Lapwings and curlews can be spotted further down the Glen. 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.
