Orkney’s bustling capital, Kirkwall is an ancient Norse town dating back to the 11th century. Together with its narrow main streets and mysterious pathways, Kirkwall is home to the magnificent St Magnus Cathedral. Today, its thriving centre boasts restaurants, museums, pubs and shops, perfect for stocking up on supplies for your stay or enjoying a delicious meal out when you would rather not cook. Explore the island on foot, two wheels or from the water, try your hand at catching a brown trout, or spend an afternoon on the green at one of the nearby golf courses. Take in some local history with a visit to the Earl’s and Bishop’s Palaces (0.5 miles) or Orkney Museum (0.5 miles), before sampling a local tipple at the Highland Park Distillery (1.5 miles). Wildlife lovers should keep a look out for inquisitive seals and even dolphins and orcas, pods of which can sometimes be spotted east of the island. Alternatively, head to Hobbister Nature Reserve (5.5 miles) to see its resident hen harriers, short-eared owls and red-throated divers as you explore the saltmarsh, moorland and sandflats. Once you have finished touring this magnificent island, take on the rest of the Orkney archipelago with a visit to Westray (27 miles) or North Ronaldsay (36 miles).

Excellent base to explore beautiful Orkney. Comfortable and well-equipped. Just right for a couple, or even a solo traveller. Quiet location close to amenities, shops, restaurants, etc., but coast and countryside is not far away. Will be even better when Covid-19 is over! We loved it.

Cosy cottage in a quiet town location convenient for all amenities and attractions. The owner has clearly shown a great attention to detail and care over preparing the property and it felt like a real home. Extremely well equipped kitchen.

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.
