While this traditional cottage is in a peaceful and scenic setting, its central location on the Isle of Arran make it the ideal base to explore all this island has to offer.

Escape to this welcoming abode and experience a taste of island life which promises to be a delightfully refreshing change to the everyday. This family-friendly farmhouse invites you to curl up and find a quiet corner after days spent out and about adventuring. While away your time spotting soaring golden eagles, listening to the roar of majestic red deer stags and gazing up at the beaming stars before sipping a tipple on the patio and heading inside to rest your head. Its central location means you can explore all of the island’s gems with ease and make the most of your Scottish retreat.

Spend quality time with friends and family at this home from home as you laugh, chat and relax together in style. The ground floor is home to rooms which invite sociable mornings, lively evenings and communal cups of tea. Step into the sitting room and fire up the flame-effect electric fire to keep warm on chilly days and snuggle up in front of the TV or lose yourself in a good book. When tummies begin to rumble head into the fabulous open-plan kitchen/diner and raid the cupboards. Sleek and bright, this is a fantastic space in which to cook up a storm and showcase your culinary skills. Plate up and dine at the table which comfortably seats eight guests. The adjoining utility room is the perfect place to kick off muddy boots, hang up soggy coats and make sure towels and jumpers are clean and ready for the day ahead. One bedroom lies on the ground floor as does a family bathroom where you can enjoy a long soak to ease aching muscles.

Climb stairs to the first floor and find the remaining bedrooms and a shower room. The bedrooms are decorated in calm fresh tones to ensure you have a good night’s sleep and wake feeling tranquil and rejuvenated. Freshen up in the shower and get set for the day before heading downstairs for a warming cup of coffee. Take care on this floor as most of the rooms have quirky sloping ceilings.

Fill your lungs with fresh Scottish air as you step out into the private garden and stretch your legs. Outdoor seating on the patio offers the perfect spot for a morning cup of something warm or a nightcap. Admire the lush greenery and views across the isle as you savour a moment of peace and quiet.

Cooking meals in Monyquil Mor kitchen was a pleasure. We loved every minute of our stay.

This cottage is in the most beautiful setting, basically in the middle of nowhere surrounded by fields of sheep. Fantastic for getting away from life, and relaxing. Very spacious and well equipped, although some smaller pans would be useful. The long drive from the main road is full of pot holes. Very bumpy. Not too good for a low 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.
