In a superbly unique location in one of the most scenic and peaceful areas of Skye, the cottage, close to the River Brittle with rewarding stunning views of the towering Cuillins, rising steeply from the shore, also seen from the garden and conservatory.

The scenery from this property is something which you will never forget. Simply breathtaking, this cottage sits within one of the most spectacular Scottish locations on the Isle of Skye. Not only can you enjoy the River Brittle, which is located nearby, but also the majestic Cuillin mountain range which can be viewed from the exterior and interior of the cottage. The landscape and remote location form the perfect base for an unforgettable romantic getaway, but it’s also perfect for adventurous friends or individuals who want to experience this ultimate outdoor playground.

Located at the end of a 7-mile single-track road, which is renowned for its breathtaking panoramas, sits this pretty whitewashed cottage with rustic features. After crossing a wooden footbridge over the River Brittle and following a 200-yard uphill footpath, you can enter this semi-detached cottage which sits adjacent to the owner’s property. The open-plan lounge/diner/kitchen is a cosy affair with natural stone walls and wood-panelled walls which give the cottage a traditional feel.

This homely space provides the ultimate haven where you can retreat with your loved one after a full days’ exploring. The modern kitchen has everything you will need for your self-catering stay including an oven, coffee machine, microwave, kettle and toaster.

The Cuillins mountain range provides a challenging climb for those that like an adventure.

Set upon the shores of Loch Harport, the setting is just perfect. Take the tour while you're there and a bottle to take back home. Dunvegan Castle and Gardens is a little further afield (approximately 27 miles) but well worth a visit to experience the grand history of the castle and its gorgeous gardens.

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.
