Nestled in the heart of Pittenweem benefiting from spectacular uninterrupted views out to sea and over the harbour with views towards the Isle of May and the Bass rock, perfect for dolphin spotting

Located on the Fife Coastal Path, outdoor enthusiasts on two and four legs can discover dramatic cliffs and caves, rocky seashores, and miles of sandy beaches on the doorstep. Perfect for a small family and one dog, this seaside cottage sleeps four in two bedrooms. Return after a windswept day for a cosy evening on the sofa as your tired pup curls up in front of the wood burner.

This lovely period property has elegant, country-cottage styling, with pretty, patterned soft furnishings, colourful artwork and classic furniture throughout, complementing cream walls creating a welcoming home from home. The open-plan living space has magnificent uninterrupted sea views over the Firth of Forth, allowing light and fresh air to pour in when the weather is warm.

Drop outdoor clothing and wipe muddy paws off in the vestibule, and step inside to the spacious hall. The open-plan living space is the heart of the house, where everyone can gather together at the end of the day, whether for delicious meals at the dining table, or to snuggle down with the flames flickering to watch a movie. As the sun goes down, retire to the serene bedrooms and after a good nights sleep, wake refreshed to spectacular views towards the Isle of May, and take a stroll with your dog along the seafront, stretching those legs for another day of fun.

Outside, the spacious, fully enclosed garden is ideal for dining alfresco morning, noon and night, and as the sun sets, pour a wee dram and settle down for some stargazing. Start and end your day in the fresh sea air as the kids potter happily on the lawn.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The flat is in the most perfect place. Right on the edge of the seafront. All you can hear is the sea. The flat is very comfortable and homely. Very warm and cosy. Immaculate and clean. Pittenweem is unspoilt and very friendly. Go to the harbour when the fishing boats come in and you are guaranteed to see seals. Walk to Anstruther and St Monans aloRead moreng the coastal path for beautiful scenery. Recommend this as a perfect getaway for peace and quiet. Hide

Really comfortable accommodation. Quality is key here. The view from light filled rooms is overlooking the sea and harbour and you can people watch to hearts content. The flat was spotless so nice to be reassured on that. I would go back in a heartbeat

The property was lovely and clean. Had everything we needed for our stay. Garden was nice and well kept, with somewhere to sit with morning coffee, a BBQ, and seating area to eat outside. Great views from the lounge, we were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins whilst enjoying a morning coffee. Close to the local shop, bakery and ice cream parlourRead more. Short walk to the harbour and the tidal pool. Would highly recommend this property for a relaxing break. Hide

We spent a fantastic week here and were lucky with the sunny weather - perfect for the many beaches nearby! The best feature of this property is the view - absolutely amazing to be right next to the sea, we loved watching the fishing boats coming and going. The house itself was lovely and clean with most things you would need (although wed have lovRead moreed a dishwasher!) and the garden is beautifully landscaped too which was an added bonus. Pittenweem is a lovely town and ideal for a holiday base. 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.
