The house itself is beautiful, plenty of seating and very airy, a lovely sun room, plenty of kitchenware, crockery & cutlery. The problem was the cooker, there was no separate grill, the grill was the top of the oven which meant that you couldn't use the grill if the oven was on and visa versa. This was not such a big problem for us as only 3 peoplRead moree could actually make the trip due to illness but as the house sleeps 8 it could cause problems for others. We were surprised that the downstairs room was a twin not a double and that this room had very little furniture to hang clothes etc. The garden is enclosed so perfect for dogs, unfortunately ours didn't make the journey because of the family illness but I'm sure she would have enjoyed exploring it.

A great house for a group of friends walking and catching up. House warm and welcoming, bedrooms spacious and comfortable and the three bathrooms especially welcome. The kitchen/dining room a natural congregation spot. Plenty of storage space, room to hang coats leave boots &c. Extremely well insulate against the elements, with maximum advantage taRead moreken of the views on to mountains and sea. Even the weather played ball (more or less), though we sadly just missed the early summer scorcher in late May! 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.
