This is a lovely house with comfortable beds and a great location for exploring Fife. The owners (who live onsite) were quick to drop off dishwasher tablets. There is plenty of cutlery and crockery, although if the house was full there probably wouldnt be enough cooking dishes, casseroles etc. As mentioned in a previous review there wouldnt be enouRead moregh seating if the house was full. You wouldnt be able to all sit around the table or in the sitting area. It felt quite full with 7/8! Hide

This is a great holiday house for a large group. St Andrews about 5 miles with a good beach and shops and historic sights. Dundee just a bit further. We liked the beach at Broughty Ferry and eating options in Dundee. The house had everything we needed. The bedrooms are excellent.

We were a big family group (5 children and 7 adults) sharing a lovely spacious house over 3 floors which was well positioned to explore The Kingdom of Fife and into Perthshire (if golfing is not your thing!). The on-site owners, Karen and Tom, could not have been more helpful or knowledgeable about the locality which enabled us to improved our stayRead more. We had a great week. 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.
