Superb cottage, with everything you need for a week or longer away. Cottage is easy to get to and well located to enjoy the Black Isle and all on offer in the surrounding area. One recommendation for your stay is there is an LED street light right outside, owners have fitted blinds and curtains to every bedroom, however eye mask may be required if Read moreyour not used to light pollution. Certainly hope to be back there in the future Hide

Old Laurel Cottage is in a great location overlooking Udale Bay and good for exploring the Black Isle. Great comfortable lounge and sofas. Few downsides are it needs a bit of updating here and there and (like most properties during Covid times) was overpriced for the standard, but overall it was a comfortable stay

Lovely, well-appointed cottage in a delightful and friendly little village. We were blessed with glorious weather, so we made the most of the big garden (although our escape-artist spaniel did make himself known to the neighbours!)

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.
