We loved the mill. We were a large family group (ages 10-80!) and the house was perfect for us - including the dog. We stayed over Christmas and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking our Christmas dinner. We could all fit in the dining room and the views are fabulous! We spent the week eating/drinking/playing board games and enjoying walks intoRead more Aberlour - about 3 miles. (Muddy so bring boots if wet!) We'd definitely stay again. Hide

We had a really lovely stay at Rhynagarrie. We were a group of three families, the room arrangements were perfect for us, we loved the open kitchen dining area which lead down to the sitting room, it was a really lovely spot, I would love to come back. There were plenty of cooking utensils and pots and pans which was great as we cook every night anRead mored loved the HUGE boot room where we stored all our extra stuff we always bring with us. The Towels and bedding were of very good quality It was also very lovely and warm when we stayed in February. The only very small negative is that there is no fence so it wouldn't be safe to take dogs or small children, but then again there is a stream too so you wouldn't leave small children outside to play either.

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.
