A delightful property set in a beautiful expanse of Scottish countryside, perfect for a peaceful, romantic break with some spectacular sites and stunning wildlife to see right on your doorstep.

This delightful little cottage on the beautiful Kildermorie Estate is a lovely retreat for a couple seeking peace and quiet. Surrounded by stunning countryside and scenery, yet within easy access of the coast, it is the perfect place for some rest and relaxation.

Inside, this neat stone-built cottage is charmingly designed, with soft, neutral décor throughout and tasteful artwork on the walls. The overall feel is light and airy, and the absence of a TV or radio enhances the calming ambience.

Entering the front door, you first come into a small hallway that’s ideal for muddy boots and walking shoes. Stroll into the main living area, comprised of a cosy sitting area with a colourful sofa where you can relax together in the evening after a day out exploring. There’s also a smart kitchen area equipped with all the essentials. Up two small steps from the kitchen you’ll encounter the bedroom, which can be made up either as a twin or a king-size room if you prefer. The adjacent en-suite bathroom is fresh and clean with a shower over bath, hand basin and WC.

Outside, the cottage is blissfully peaceful and surrounded by glorious countryside. Enjoy listening to the birds sing and take a walk in the fresh air through the nearby woodland. There is plenty of space for parking on the gravelled area directly outside the cottage.

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.
