A charming four-bedroom countryside cottage with warm woods used throughout, perfect for families and friends seeking a tranquil base from which to explore the Scottish Highlands.

Stay on the brink of an ancient Scots pine forest, where imposing pine trees fade into starry night skies and Scottish wildlife grazes around you. This contemporary home happily sleeps eight guests and is all set out on the ground floor, making it the ideal destination for guests both young and old. Despite its secluded location, the property sits on a farm with three further homes and is an excellent choice for multiple families holidaying together.


This modern home has been renovated to a high standard, opting for solid wooden furniture and a bright, clean colour scheme throughout. Windows and French doors allow light to flood the property, creating a cheery place to wake up to each morning, yet a warming wood burner ensures a cosy space to relax come the evening.


Your entire family can unwind in the sociable open-plan living space, which feels incredibly spacious thanks to a double-height ceiling. To one side of the room you’ll find a well-equipped kitchen with plenty of workspace and a double electric oven. Serving dinner will be a breeze, as the large dining table can be found right here in the kitchen and is a wonderful space to enjoy breakfast and plan the day ahead. To the other side of the room you’ll find a comfy lounge area, boasting plenty of sofas to crash on and a TV with DVD player. Adjacent is a charming garden room, where large windows and skylights provide the perfect space to watch for wildlife or enjoy a good family board game. All four bedrooms can be found on the ground floor and each boasts a unique style. You’ll find the spacious master bedroom decorated with a unique tree print wallpaper and matching soft furnishings, an instant reminder of your surrounding forest setting. This large master double has a similarly spacious en-suite shower room. Completing this floor is one further double and two twin rooms. One of these doubles and one of these twin rooms feature French doors leading onto the patio, ideal for al fresco coffee on a sunny morning. The bedrooms have been equipped with plenty of space for storing clothes and exceptionally comfy bed sheets.


To the rear of the house, you’ll find a secluded little courtyard, which assures privacy despite the three other houses in close proximity. Sit down to a meal on this patio space or head out first thing and enjoy breakfast in the morning sun. The remaining space around the home is set to lawn, and a manicured grass garden is the perfect space for your children to play a ball game.

Get wonderfully lost in the Scots pine trees in the forest immediately behind the property, an enchanting place for children to explore, or wander down to the nearby River North Esk around 500 metres away. This river is prolific in Angus for salmon fishing, perfect for taking a catch home to prepare for dinner. Those who prefer golf will find two local courses both within 7 miles of the home.


A relaxing day out can be enjoyed at the local seaside town of Montrose, 10 miles towards the coast. The old style of the town is charming, and you'll find a popular farmers' market here on the first Saturday of each month. The town sits on the edge of a vast muddy basin which makes a bustling nature reserve and attracts wildfowl. Visit the Montrose Basin Wildlife Centre (12 miles) to observe birds and animals through binoculars and inside bird hides. The beach at Montrose offers 3 miles of sand, a children's play area and independent cafe.


See the area in a unique way with a trip on the Caledonian Railway (8 miles), a steam-powered 4-mile train track touring the Angus countryside. Whilst in that area, be sure to tour the 13th-century Brechin Cathedral (8.5 miles). A further day out can be enjoyed 6 miles away at Edzell Castle, where you can look around the fine house and tour the blooming gardens in the summer.

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.
