The owners, Mr and Mrs Scott were really welcoming and most helpful, especially as we mislaid the key to our property the very first night! This is a lovely wee cottage we have used before and heartily recommend for a short and cosy break away from it all.

This was our third stay at Prospect Hill, it has everything you need and is in a quiet Location. Sitting on the deck with a glass of wine the views overlooking the bay and Holy Isle were fantastic. The property owners were friendly and helpful. Its a 10 minute walk or a short drive along the shoreline towards Lamlash were you can see seals basking Read moreon the rocks. Lamlash has a few pubs which offer varied menus including Vegan dishes which we enjoyed. It was third time lucky for us seeing otters playing and eating on the shoreline opposite the property. If you like walking the views are amazing from all over the island, we will definitely be returning in future. Hide

The cottage is small and well equipped, with amazing views of Holy Island, particularly from the decking. Great walks from the door, and conveniently placed to get to other places by car or bus. Extremely peaceful, and dog friendly.

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.
