We had a lovely stay. The accommodation was really clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The lodge was also well situated at the back of the holiday park with great views across the fields.

Very clean, comfortable and well-appointed with excellent storage space in both bedrooms and kitchen. Pleasant site and handy for Dumfries. If booking for four people I would recommend checking the size of the second bedroom. (This was our first self-catering holiday in this kind of accommodation, so that may have influenced our expectations).

Lovely, cozy little lodge! Has everything you need for your stay! For this particular lodge I would say it would suit a couple with younger kids as the bedroom with the bunk beds is a lot smaller than expected with not much room to move around in! The outside area could do with some attention as a little tattie but apart from that its a lovely littRead morele place! Hide

The lodge was ok, we had some issues with a light fitting but this was rectified. On the whole the lodge is starting to look a bit run down..... burn marks on the work top outside area looking in need of a deep clean.

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.
