Historic Morebattle is an exceptional place from which to immerse yourself in the Scottish Borders. Purchase local produce here and enjoy a meal or drink or two at the local inn. For a wider range of independent shops, venture into Kelso, which is 6 miles away. Here you can wander round the pretty market square filling your shopping bag and enjoying a wider choice of restaurants.

Also take a trip to the ruins of the 12th century Kelso Abbey, while you are here, play golf or even have a day at the races. From Morebattle itself, walk 2 miles to the ruins of Cessford Castle, a striking, 15th-century castle. Keen walkers can also pick up St Cuthbert's Way in the village which stretches from Melrose and Lindisfarne off to the coast of Northumberland. Bridging the border between Scotland and England, this 62.5-mile route joins Melrose, where the saint started his religious life in 650AD, with Holy Island, his final resting place, off the Northumberland coast, and passes through some wonderful scenery. Head about 6 miles to the edge of the Northumberland National Park then explore the area with its rivers, waterfalls and woodland, as well, of course, as Hadrian's Wall. Those who enjoy fishing can also spend time by the rivers closer to home, the Teviot and the Tweed, hoping to catch salmon or trout and relishing some quiet time.

Cottage was very basic and had not been updated for many years. Area is secluded with very little amenities. Outside area unkept and not pleasant to sit outside. Overpriced

Beautifully situated to explore the Borders. Lovely quiet village with good access to towns in the Borders. Friendly pub just next door and manager was most helpful. Nice cottage very clean and well equipped but lacked that cosy feel which would put us off booking again.

I couldn't write anything positive about the cottage, it was a great disappointment. It felt totally uncared for and unloved. The outside was very unkempt.

Very nice and cozy cottage with just about everything you need provide , the welcome pack of milk bread wine and crisps was a lovely little extra.

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.
