A pretty two-bedroom waterside cottage in a peaceful location, perfectly positioned to explore the rugged landscape and quaint villages of the Scottish Highlands.

A delightful holiday cottage that sits on the shores of Loch Fyne in Argyll, an exclusive and remote location where you'll feel far away from it all. This home is described as a ‘tranquil paradise’ by previous guests who have fallen in love with its beautiful interiors and spectacular surroundings. With stylish décor, comfortable furnishings and an awe-inspiring panoramic view we can't help but think this must be close to heaven.

This Scottish haven is a peaceful and restorative place to stay. It's ideal for both active family holidays or as a romantic weekend destination off the beaten track. Downstairs, there is an open-plan living/dining room, decorated with tartan blankets and an assortment of knick-knacks that make it a very homely space. Gather together for an evening by the fire watching a film, playing board games or just hanging out. The kitchen has been cleverly designed to make the most of the space and is well-equipped for you to whip up hearty meals. You will find the first bedroom downstairs, a beautifully decorated double with a dusty pink chaise lounge that adds a luxe touch.

Upstairs is the second bedroom comprising of three single beds, a rocking chair and a TV for when the children want to take themselves off for their own film night. There is also a smart bathroom with a gorgeous deep bathtub, the perfect place to indulge in some me-time after a busy day exploring.

Well-kept gardens surround this self-catering cottage. Wildlife enthusiasts expect to see red squirrels, roe deer, seals, perhaps an otter or pine marten, a profusion of small and large birds, siskins, goldfinches, blue tits, herons, pheasants, red-legged partridge, buzzards, oystercatchers, maybe even the greater spotted woodpecker or an osprey or sea eagle flying overhead.

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

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 double, 1 triple
  • 2 bathrooms - 1 bathroom with bath, separate shower and WC, 1 shower room with WC
  • Electric cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine
  • Electricity included

This cottage is only 3 miles from Lochgilphead, a small town frozen in time where guests will find a selection of lovely cafes, pubs and shops.

If you want to take a scenic drive follow the coastline route to Campbelltown, where once you arrive you can stretch your legs by taking a long walk along the sandy shores of Peninver Sands (57 miles away).

For another great beach and some fascinating history take a drive to Skipness where you'll find a glorious golden sandy beach that faces the Isle of Arran - try and visit in the summer when there is plenty of wildlife to look out for. Other attractions in Skipton include the 13th-century Skipness Castle and the Seafood Cabin which is a member of the Seafood Trail (29.7 miles).

Get even closer to wildlife at The Scottish Beaver Trial where you can be a beaver detective for the day and look out for signs of beaver activity. This fascinating place has been responsible for reintroducing beavers 400 years after being hunted to extinction (5.8 miles away). Crarae Gardens are also a nearby sweet spot to visit to explore a utopia of rocky gorges, wooden bridges and copses of maple, birch and evergreens, mixing with vivid flowers (20 miles away).

Shore cottage is surrounded by well kept gardens. You can spend the whole day watching the wild life from outside Shore cottage. We took a walk over to the island at low tide, the water was clear and warm. We had our 2 dogs with us and they had a fantastic week playing in the water and walking around the Estate. The cottage has everything you wouldRead more expect. Previous to this we had stayed in Pier cottage that's on the same estate. Our happy place, a hidden gem. We will be back again soon. 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.
